ALOHA is a nice tutoring school that has helped me and many other students improve in school. ALOHA aided me academically in many ways. The most important skill it helped me develop was my writing skill. It helped me write great essays and use a more developed vocabulary.  During class discussions, I learned a lot of new words and facts. ALOHA helps us with our reading and writing. I highly recommend everyone join ALOHA.
