Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kapolei District Curriculum
The biggest updates to the Kapolei-area’s schools’ curriculum will occur in the areas of mathematics and English Language Arts; full implementation of these changes should occur by the 2013-2014 school year. In mathematics, schools will endeavor to inspire students to study math beyond the secondary level by focusing on the logic behind equations -- instead of simply teaching students how to perform them. In English Language Arts, students will be exposed to many types of written texts, including fiction and nonfiction, and will be expected to analyze and write critically about these texts.
To augment the change to the CCSS, the DOE is also placing greater weight on digital learning. Instead of relying on print materials, the DOE will attempt to give all students access to digital materials and learning platforms. By doing so, the DOE and Kapolei-area schools not only hope to make learning more personal for students, but also to prepare them to compete in today’s increasingly technology-driven workplace.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Kapolei students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. 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.
Kapolei District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Kapolei-area schools and the Hawaii State Department of Education (DOE) are committed to giving students the tools necessary to succeed beyond high school. Whether this means entering university or the working world, the DOE and Kapolei-area schools do what it takes to prepare students for life as productive citizens. To this end, the DOE is adopting the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS), which are designed to update current curricula and enhance learning opportunities.

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: Is Community Service Important for High School Students?
University admissions offices, especially at prestigious schools, are flooded with applications every year. One way students can make themselves stand out is by being able to include community service projects and volunteerism on applications. Students who perform service work, such as helping in a soup kitchen or organizing a charity project, are showing that they’re able to balance school and extracurricular activities, a quality that admissions officers look for. For an extra edge, students might consider volunteering in the field they wish to study. For example, students who’d like to become veterinarians can volunteer in kennels, animal shelters, or vets’ offices.
