Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Halawa District Curriculum
The DOE is also instituting a new curriculum for Halawa-area schools. Instead of following the No Child Left Behind standards, schools will be switching to the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) beginning with the 2013-2014 school year. The CCSS will update instruction in two important subjects: English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics. Students will no longer be expected to learn by rote. They will, instead, be expected to think critically in both areas, which means understanding the logic behind mathematical equations and analyzing in-depth a range of literary texts.
Graduation requirements will undergo a slight change under the CCSS, although the new requirements will not take effect until 2016. In mathematics, students must successfully earn one credit each of Algebra and Geometry, instead of choosing which math courses they’d like to take. In English Language Arts, students will need to earn one-half credit in Expository Writing in addition to one credit each in ELA I and ELA II.

Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.
Halawa District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Halawa-area schools, along with the Hawaii State Department of Education (DOE) have one important goal: to prepare students for life beyond secondary schooling, whether this includes going to college or entering the workforce. The schools uphold this goal by focusing on six General Learner Outcomes (GLOs). These GLOs aim to teach students to use technology effectively, seek future learning, communicate effectively, produce quality work, think critically, and contribute to the community.
We currently cover the following Halawa-area school district: Hawaii Public Schools.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: What is Accreditation?
One way parents and students can ensure they are receiving quality education is to verify the accreditation status of their schools. Accreditation, which is available for schools from pre-kindergarten to post-secondary levels, is a process wherein schools are checked against a set of rigorous quality standards. If a school passes, it is said to be accredited. In the U.S., accreditation is not granted by the federal government; instead, private nonprofit organizations set up standards and accredit the schools which meet them. One example of these organizations is the Council for Higher Education Accreditation, or CHEA. Universities who are accredited by CHEA have proven that they can meet high educational standards.
