I want to thank Momentum and Ms. Marianne for all the help they have given my daughter Sienna over the last 3 years. Her confidence level has greatly improved along with her mathematic skills. The student/tutor bond is amazing. Momentum provides such a positive experience that goes far beyond just academics.

We are a Neurofeedback clinic in Lakeside that works with a great deal of children with ADHD. We have noticed that some of our clients have been accessing services from Momentum. Our clients and their parents have reported to us that this organization is wonderful. They feel that their children are being supported and that Momentum really cares about their education and learning. They have also said that their children's grades have improved, they feel more successful with learning, and they are now taking school more seriously. We have requested more business cards from Momentum because we will be sending a lot of clients over to them since they are doing such a wonderful job!

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.
