A teacher of my daughter recommended Momentum when she was in 2nd grade. I gave it some consideration and decided not to. When my daughter was in 3rd grade and still struggling with school and homework, I reconsidered my decision and enrolled her. She has improved her grades and self-esteem with the improvement of her school work. She is excited when I pick her up because of all of her homework being done and being able to play and do what she likes to do when she gets home vice sitting and doing homework for the night. Momentum has made a positive difference in my daughter outlook at school.

Scott has been in Momentum Tutoring off and on for over one year. His tutor speaks Spanish and is able to help him with his homework in both languages. We sent Scott to Momentum to help with his English reading. His English reading has improved greatly and he is up to grade level. He attends 2 private tutoring sessions a week and the fee is very reasonable. The reward system Momentum uses encourages him to do his best. I like the classroom setting at the headquarters in Santee, it's a relaxed atmosphere conducive to learning. The best part is Scott really enjoys going!

I have worked for momentum tutoring for almost three years now. I have enjoyed working with the students and helping them achieve their goals. I would say the most rewarding part of my job is seeing our students faces when they accomplish a school project and go around the center telling each tutor what they have done.

I am very impressed with Momentum Tutoring. My son who is 16 really needed some help this year as a sophmore in high school. He likes going there to get help from his tutor. He has brought his grades up. Thank you Momentum for your help.

I began at Momentum as a volunteer and i have loved the experience. I love working with the kids and it is amazing to see the students improve their school work and attitudes. One of my students improved immensely and even received the student of the month award. That was great to see how Momentum has helped and made a difference in this child's life. Momentum is a great program and every tutor cares for each kid that comes. I love every aspect of working here.

As a high school teacher at West Hills High School in Santee, I have observed the staff of Momentum do great things. Quite often, students struggle with the organization and discipline necessary to do homework and complete assignments. Since these factors are largely out of the teacher's control, Momentum steps in and provides structure beyond the classroom that is paramount to academic success. Quite a few of my students have made incredible turn-arounds as a result of Momentum's extra attention and high-quality staff. The change was both immediate and long-lasting.

I recently began volunteering at Momentum and enjoy all aspects of this great nonprofit. Before I worked here, I worked in retail where the entirety of the job consisted of folding clothes and competing with your coworkers for sales. I was pleasantly surprised when I came to know and understand that the small community of volunteers we have, are motivated to cooperate and make a difference in our community. Currently, I am I high school senior ready to attend a four year college, so becoming employed full-time was not appealing. Working at Momentum gives me the opportunity to effect the lives of our future, and do so on a scheduled that is flexible, and convenient for my teenage, scholarly lifestyle. Everyday I walk in the door, I am greeted not only by warm, smiling coworkers, but a comforting environment that undoubtedly fosters learning and a deep-rooted love for education. The most rewarding aspect of this job comes not from the relationships I have built, nor the friends I have made, but the look on a child's face when a concept they previously perceived as abstract, solidifies itself, and becomes pleasurable for the student to learn. At times, I will glance at the student doing their work, and hope that perhaps something -- anything I have said will impact or help that student in life; it is a unique experience and I thank Momentum Tutoring for giving me the opportunity to make a difference.

I am a tutor here at Momentum Tutoring and it is an amazing organization. I have seen how much kids are benefited from coming to tutoring. It is so exciting when a student comes in, excited about their grades! Working here is also a great opportunity and it allows me to balance my schoolwork and my job.
