“My tutor was very friendly and made sure that I understood what he was saying. I like how he used analogies to help me better understand.”

OLA tutoring is a perfect fit for the typically busy student. We know you are busy working and trying to attend classes and often don’t have time to get help during limited instructor office hours. We are available wherever you can access the internet and we hold tutoring hours on evenings and weekends (except Sat) when students need homework help. Feel free to ask tutors any questions about college or their professional career pathways. And … tutoring is completely free!
I'm a Parent
OLA tutoring has been successfully used for over 10 years by students and teachers across Hawaii. We have an excellent reputation with well over 1.5 million minutes in tutoring in math, science, and English. Our tutors are highly-qualified, local high school graduates who are currently students at UH Mānoa. All tutors are chosen for their high academic standards, leadership, prior teaching experience, and they undergo an extensive background check before employment. Tutoring is convenient, online, and completely free!
I'm a Teacher
Hundreds of Hawai’i educators have successfully incorporated OLA tutoring as an added support to allow students to get homework help after school and at home. Recently, OLA’s EdReady project initiative has been adopted by several high school early-college programs to help students prepare for and successfully complete college-level math. Waipahu High School’s early college STEM Olympians placed an astounding 97% of their 9th graders in college level math using EdReady. CTE teachers (Career and Technical Education) across the state have also begun to adopt EdReady as an effective way to help students review and master key math and English content to prepare for careers. If you are interested in partnering with OLA on any of our initiatives or having us come to speak to your class, please contact us.
