Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pearl City District Curriculum
Students at Pearl City schools will benefit from the Common Core Standards implementation in a variety of ways, especially in the areas of Mathematics and Language Arts, a key focus of the CCSS. High school students, through earning Algebra and Geometry credits, will learn the logic of math. They will also receive instruction in writing in multiple formats and reading critically through English Language Arts and Expository Writing classes.
In addition to preparing students in traditional subjects, Pearl City High School also upholds six General Learner Outcomes (GLOs). With a focus on areas including technology, communication, and production, these GLOs are intended to prepare the Pearl City High School graduate for life as a contributing part of society. Additionally, the development of critical thinking strategies and the ability to conduct independent work are end-goals for student learning.

Pearl City District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Schools in Hawaii are run by the Hawaii State Department of Education (DOE), and Pearl City schools are no exception. The standards upheld by the DOE are designed to not only create successful students, but also to impact the whole of Hawaii — as students succeed in the workforce, they can help with the expansion of Hawaii’s economy. To this end, the DOE is implementing a shift to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), with implementation to be complete by the 2013-2014 school year.
We currently cover the following Pearl City-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: Ways to Finance a College Education
As post-secondary education costs soar, many parents and students must find every possible way to fund higher education. Fortunately, potential college students have access to funds from a variety of sources. Most students are eligible for some type of funding from the federal government, whether the money must be paid back (loans) or not (grants). Students can check their eligibility for government funds and programs by filling out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Other routes to college funding include scholarships, whether from colleges, businesses or professional organizations, national programs such as ROTC, and work study opportunities.
