Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kailua District Curriculum
The implementation of the CCSS brings modifications to Kailua-area schools’ curricula, with the most changes coming to two subjects: English Language Arts and Mathematics. English Language Arts (ELA) instruction will widen to include more focus on nonfiction works and evidence-based writing. The changes to mathematics instruction include greater focus on math’s real-world applications.
Kailua High School also outlines 16 habits of mind the school wishes to impart to students. These include independent and flexible thinking, persistence, the desire for continual learning, precision in communication, responsible risk-taking, and more. The General Learner Outcomes (GLOs) outlined by the DOE, which include a focus on developing the social skills of contribution, production, and communication, are also upheld by Kailua High School.

Kailua District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are set for full adoption by the Hawaii State Department of Education (DOE) by the 2013-2014 school year. Kailua-area schools fall under these new standards, which will help the area’s students prepare not only for academic success in post-secondary education, but also for career success.
We currently cover the following Kailua-area school district: Hawaii Public Schools.
Keeping Informed: Recent Kailua Educational News
- Teacher of the Year - Hawaii has named the recipient of the 2013 Teacher of the Year award: Kailua Intermediate teacher Karen Kutsunai. A teacher at Kailua Intermediate since 1999, Kutsunai was chosen, in part, for her commitment to helping those students experiencing difficulties in school.
- New Student Assessments - A trial run of the Smarter Balanced assessment system will take place in at least 75 Hawaii schools, with full implementation coming in 2014-2015. The system has been adopted with the goal of better measuring how students are progressing toward careers and post-secondary education.
- Increases in AP Participation - Both scores and participation in Advanced Placement (AP) exams are rising among Hawaii students. Superintendent Matayoshi attributes part of this success to efforts made by the school system to furnish all students with the chance to take AP exams and courses.
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: How to Apply to College
With more and more colleges adopting online application processes, applying to college is becoming easier than ever. Once students have identified the colleges they wish to apply to, they have a few simple steps to follow. First, students should visit the colleges’ websites, where they will find information on specific application deadlines, fees, and materials. Next, students should gather the necessary application materials, which generally include at least a high school transcript, an application form, and a personal essay. Finally, students should submit these materials, via postal mail or the Internet, and pay all necessary fees.
