Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Milalani Mauka District Curriculum
The new CCSS will impact Mililani Mauka-area schools by updating their curriculum, especially in the areas of English Language Arts and Mathematics. In ELA, this shift entails more work with texts outside of fiction, including nonfiction and instructional, and a focus on evidence-based writing. In Mathematics, students will see more emphasis on the logic behind math and math’s use in the real world; the DOE also aims to inspire more students to study math at the post-secondary level.
The CCSS also include the goal of preparing students for college and career environments rich with technology. To prepare students for these environments, the DOE will be shifting to a digital-focused curriculum in all schools, including those in the local area. Materials will be available to students in digital format via laptop or tablet, which will help reduce the use of outdated print materials. The DOE also hopes that a digital format will give each student a more personalized learning experience.

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.

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: Tips for Better Note Taking
Taking notes in class can be a great strategy for learning material, as long as it’s done effectively. Instead of scribbling down every word they hear, students should try to listen for the main points, then capture them in their own words. This often means writing quickly, so students might consider developing their own system of abbreviations and shorthand. Some students find it helpful to record information in a visually appealing manner by using mapping, tree diagrams, or color coding. Even with thorough, organized note taking, however, students often don’t catch everything in class. To help solve this problem, students can review their notes immediately after class, adding and adjusting any information where necessary. With a little practice, taking notes can become an effective way to interact with course material.
