Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Waimalu District Curriculum
The CCSS will replace the older No Child Left Behind standards. The biggest changes in the curriculum will occur in the areas of English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics. In English Language Arts, students will be exposed to a range of texts, including fiction, nonfiction, and informational. They will be expected to write analytically about each type of text. In Mathematics, students will be instructed in the logic of math, as opposed to simply the how of performing equations and functions.
To support this change in curriculum, the DOE will also be placing greater importance on digital learning materials in classrooms. Waimalu-area students should expect to see greater use of digital platforms in classrooms, which will help alleviate the use of outdated print materials. Giving students access to digital learning materials will also allow for greater personalization in education.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Waimalu 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.
Waimalu District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Beginning with the 2013-2014 school year, Waimalu-area schools and the Hawaii State Department of Education (DOE) will be instituting a switch to the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS). This switch has already occurred for several grade levels, but by updating the curriculum for all grades, the DOE hopes to better uphold the goals of Waimalu-area schools — to prepare students for their futures in competitive post-secondary education and career environments.
We currently cover the following Waimalu-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: The Importance of Reading
With nearly unlimited access to video games, social media, and television, many students find it difficult to get involved with reading for pleasure. Reading, however, is one easy way students can improve their grades across a variety of subjects. The act of reading not only serves to increase vocabulary, but also gives a better innate understanding of grammar and information ordering. Information learned from one subject isn’t just applicable to one small area, either. Each new piece of information connects with already learned information across a variety of subjects, building a better understanding of the world as a whole. Students who avoid reading because they find it difficult don’t have to miss out on the positive effects of the activity. Teachers and tutors are happy to help, which means that all students can not only reap benefits from the act, but also learn to enjoy it.
