The National Science Foundation has awarded Los Angeles Mission College with a $1.3 million grant to support efforts to increase success rates for biology majors, college officials announced today.

"Building Capacity: An Intervention to Improve Success of Biology Majors in Mathhematics".

LAMC student shared her experience after attending our Trigonometry Academic Success Workshops -
"In the beginning of the online Trigonometry class I thought I would be able to teach the subject to myself but it was a bad idea. I started attending the Math workshop/tutoring and saw a major improvement with learning and understanding the material."
