Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Royal Kunia District Curriculum
The biggest change students and parents can expect to see is the switch to the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Replacing the No Child Left Behind standards, the CCSS were created to bring nationwide unity to learning. The CCSS updates the Royal Kunia-area curriculum in two important areas: mathematics and English Language Arts (ELA). Students will no longer be expected to simply memorize facts or equations. Instead, a greater importance will be given to learning analytical and critical thinking.
To augment the changes brought with the CCSS, the Hawaii DOE is also in the process of switching to digital learning materials. In the future, every student will have access to digital learning platforms, which will not only eradicate the use of outdated print materials, but will also allow students to better personalize their learning. Because this switch is an ongoing process, the DOE does not estimate an exact time frame for a complete switch to the new curricular standards.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Royal Kunia 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.
Royal Kunia District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Although the basic goals of the Hawaii State Department of Education (DOE) and Royal Kunia-area high schools will remain the same, starting in 2013-2014, a few changes will be coming to Royal Kunia-area’s schools’ curriculum. These changes, in fact, will better support the goals of the area’s schools: to create students who are ready to take on any challenge after high school, whether this includes post-secondary education or entering the workforce.
We currently cover the following Royal Kunia-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: How to Avoid Homework Procrastination
Sometimes, when faced with a difficult or lengthy homework assignment, students might be tempted to put off the work until the last minute. This is rarely a good idea, however. Not only does it cause extra stress, but it often results in lower quality work. To avoid procrastination, students can try a few simply methods. Instead of trying to complete an entire assignment at once, students might break the work into smaller chunks, then assign due dates to each. When doing so, students should be realistic about how long the work will take, and plan accordingly. Because distractions can derail progress, students should take care to work without external interruptions.
