My son has been going to Momentum for a couple months now. He has improved a great deal in this short amout of time. I can't wait to see what more time brings. Makes me so happy to see his confidence and independence improve every day! He has not missed a day and looks forward to it even after being at school for over 6 hours he does another 2 with his tutor each day. Thank you Momentum and thank you Hailey for your hard work helping my son!

My son has been a student at Momentum Tutoring for 2 years and his Dad and I couldn't be more happy with his progress. He was a whole year behind due to a non-productive Kindergarten year at a Montessori school. His tutor at Momentum was instrumental in getting him caught up to his grade level and he is now reading above grade level. Besides the academic tutoring, he also meets weekly with a Spanish and guitar tutor and always looks forward to his time at Momentum! This is the BEST place in East County for tutoring and giving your child one-on-one instruction.

My son, now finishing up his Junior year in high school, is in his 3rd year with Momentum Tutoring! The weekly 1:1 sessions with a private aide are invaluable in maintaining his 'almost 4.0' GPA. He's determined to get that 4.0. This is especially important now that we are *this close* to applying to universities. Though the tutors he's assigned to have changed over the years, Momentum always seems to know who will be the best fit. He's currently working with Jacob and it's going really well.

Momentum Tutoring was able to quickly get my son started with his tutoring sessions. We appreciate all of the help Ms. Julia has provided our son, and he has really enjoyed working with her this year.

Terri's passion of helping children and compassion towards struggling children with specific special needs definitely is overwhelming. She gives of her self so freely and lovingly. My son was struggling in the public school. Thanks to Terri offering to open up her Hybrid Home School, my son is finally thriving! In just a few short weeks, there is already a difference in him. He has gained the confidence he needs to learn to read. He is excited to go to school everyday with Terri. He is excited for what she is going to teach him everyday. My son is a new student because of this program.

Thank you Terri and all of the staff at Momentum Tutoring for giving Dylan and Nevaeh one of the best summers they have ever had! You all truly outdid yourselves and I couldn't be more grateful. I am so amazed at how much Nevaeh learned in the past 6 weeks. She grew in so many ways and I'm so proud of her. Garret had a blast volunteering and Dylan can't wait for next summer already! Thank you for putting your heart and soul into this program
