Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kahului District Curriculum
In an extra effort to prepare students for the challenges they’ll face when entering post-secondary schooling, the DOE and Kahului-area schools are implementing a switch to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), expected to be complete by the 2013-2014 school year. The biggest changes to the curriculum will take place in mathematics and English Language Arts, both of which will receive extra focus on complex and analytical thinking.
Maui High School, which serves Kahului-area students, outlines additional school-wide goals. High school students can expect to see these changes in their required graduation courses, which, by 2016, will include Algebra, Geometry, English Language Arts, and Expository Writing. These are designed to help educators better serve students by providing common standards for faculty to uphold. Goals include providing support services for students, encouraging parental involvement, and maintaining a rigorous curriculum.

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: How to Build Vocabulary
A large vocabulary is important for students as they enter post-secondary education; not only do college entrance exams test this area, but coursework is more easily understood by students who know the words found in texts and lectures. Students can build vocabulary with a few simple steps. First, whenever students encounter unfamiliar words, they should write down the words and seek out the definitions. Next, students can use flashcards to memorize new words. This activity is great for filling otherwise idle time, such as riding the bus. Last, students can learn common word roots. Because many English words come from Latin or Greek roots, memorizing these will make guessing the meaning of unfamiliar words easier. With a little work, students can expect to improve their vocabularies by a handful of words each week.
