MOMENTUM TUTORING IS WONDERFUL. MY SON HAD TROUBLE WITH MATH IN THE 1ST GRADE. WE WOULD STRUGGLE WITH HIM TO DO IT, AND HE WOULD NOT LET US HELP HIM AND IT WOULD BE A BATTLE EVERY NIGHT. WE DECIDED TO GET HIM TUTORED AT MOMENTUM. HE IS NOW IN THE 3RD GRADE AND STILL GOING. HIS MATH HAS GREATLY IMPROVED. HE LOVES GOING THERE AND THEY WILL HELP HIM WITH ANYTHING. I HAVE NOTICE HOW MUCH CONFIDENCE HE HAS NOW AND
IS NOT BOTHERED BY HOMEWORK. THANK YOU MOMENTUM!!!! i

I've been employed at momentum tutoring for the last five months and love seeing all the children learn. The students are always eager to come in and work on their daily homework. We have kids that struggle of course, but we are able to help them prosper academically. I'm always pleased when I see their new accomplishments. It reassures me that we, Momentum, do our job. The one thing I wouuld change about Momentum is getting more supplies so tutors can use new ways to teach their students.

My time spent with students seeing them acheive their goals.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Add more supplies for the students and tutors. Or more learning games so when they're done with their homework they have something academic to do.

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 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.
