Thank you again for providing such an important service. IT REALLY DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE! - Parent of OLA Student

Thank you for supporting our learners here at the High Schools and at UH!

- Teacher of OLA Student

I know for a fact that if it weren’t for these amazing tutors coming to help me understand certain math problems and formulas, I would be getting very poor grades right now. Thank you all so much!

Each tutor that I’ve worked with has helped me a lot with my math. It’s been awesome!

The University of Hawaii at Manoa OLA has completely changed the way my daughters look at math. They’re now proud of the grades they get and look forward to their tests. I cannot say how grateful I am for this amazing online resource.
