Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kihei District Curriculum
The DOE is working to prepare students for success by switching to the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The switch is expected to be fully implemented by the 2013-2014 school year, and it will bring the most changes to English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics. Starting in 2016, students who graduate must earn four credits in ELA (including ELA I, ELA II, and Expository Writing) and three credits in math (including one credit each in Geometry and Algebra).
English Language Arts courses will widen their focuses to include nonfiction and informational materials. Mathematics courses will seek to teach students the why behind equations, instead of just the how. The CCSS will also give students more opportunity to interact with technology. The DOE plans to shift to a more digitally-focused curriculum, which will give students the opportunity to access and present course materials and projects on digital devices.

Kihei District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
All public schools, from elementary to secondary, in the Kihei area fall under the curriculum set forth by the Hawaii Department of Education (DOE). Kihei-area schools and the DOE place the utmost importance on the future of their students; to ensure that students are successful in college and beyond, the DOE has adopted six General Learner Outcomes (GLOs) for schools to follow. With their focus on production, communication, and technology, the GLOs are designed to aid teachers in producing college- and career-ready students.
We currently cover the following Kihei-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 MLA?
The initialism ‘MLA’ stands for Modern Language Association. This organization was founded in 1883 with the aim of promoting and advocating for instruction in literature and languages. When a paper is written in MLA style, it follows the MLA’s conventions for formatting and citation. Because MLA style is specific, students may need to research and learn about its guidelines before they can use it comfortably. Teachers and tutors can help students with this important task; high school teachers generally require that papers be written in MLA style. Learning MLA style is especially important for students who plan to enter post-secondary education, as most university professors expect papers to be written following these style guidelines.
