MOMENTUM TUTORING
October 26, 2013

My son is a junior in high school and had extreme difficulty in his chemistry class. He just couldn't learn from the teacher and was failing. He called me at lunch from school three days ago, Tuesday, ready to give up, sure that he would fail the class. He felt dumb and humiliated, and worried that he might not be able to graduate high school. His grades were suffering also due to missing several days of school and his ADD.

We called Momentum tutoring that same day, signed up the same night and our son was tutored the next two days, Wednesday and Thursday. On Friday, he took a chemistry test and scored 100%, with 5 extra credit points. He understood the material, after being lost for six weeks! The teacher told the entire class his score, and it was amazing! He also got a B plus on his algebra 2 test,(up from a D on the first test) and had studied so well for his geography test that he aced the test and filled up the back page with extra credit information...

It seems like a miracle to go from an F to an A in two days... but it happened. Lets see how he does for the long haul. His confidence went from zero to fifty in two days. thanks so much Bree! Terri spent lots of time on the phone with us finding the most appropriate tutors, and we are so appreciative. WE can't thank you enough, and will surely bring our younger son in as well.

Ways to make it better...

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

Find a way to bring in donations from the community, and do fund raising so their services could be given to those who are unable to pay, improve equipment, and expand the program. I told our school councelor about Momentum and hope she spreads the word.
