I have been working with Momentum Tutoring for 5 years now. I was lucky enough to stumble upon this job, and have been extremely grateful ever since.. Momentum has provided me with a stable job while continuing in my higher education. I always knew I wanted to work with students, but it was working at Momentum that made me sure. I am truly inspired by the help we provide to families in need. Education should not be costly, and we are able to make that happen. Everyday, I am proud of our fellow tutors, our amazing students, and our wonderful and supportive families. This job makes me proud of the work I do and the program that I am a part of. Everyday we hear new success stories that show the result of our tutors' and students' hard work. I have worked here for my entire working life, and I look forward to helping Momentum grow in our community.

Momentum Tutoring is my dream come true! I have an intense passion for helping others see how awesome they are. I love "Ahha" moments when suddenly someone just gets it. I love providing those moments. Finding just the right tutor for just what a client needs is one of my greatest joys. Making Momentum what it is today has been an incredible journey full of ups and downs. So many times I wanted to just quit. Direct my efforts towards something with less stress and liability, more income and stability. I have persevered through the seemingly impossible because of the students, their families and the tutors. I have seen the impact Momentum has on people and I know as a student, teacher, and parent ... Momentum fills a gap. Every community needs a YMCA, Boys and Girls Club, and MOMENTUM TUTORING. Please help us make convenient and effective tutoring a community staple, available to anyone who wants to learn.

My daughter has been going to Momentum since the beginning of the 2010-2011 school year. We have seen great progress in her reading comprehension and confidence levels. She is very happy here and feels that her tutor is like a big sister to her. The staff is very loving and communication is awesome. I highly recommend Momentum!

My son has learning disabilities due to ADHD. We heard about Momentum about 3 years ago. I loved them when I interviewed with them. They evaluated my son and started working with him right away. He has GREAT trained aides. I am so pleased with the one he has now, Bianca. She is open, honest and makes him work for his prizes. She keeps me updated on his advancements and new difficulties she notices. She is a great aide. I am always greeted with a smile by the employees, and my son feels so at home when he goes there. He even asks me to pick him up late sometimes so he can hang out and look at the books in the back (and hang with some of the other kids). I have referred Momentum Tutoring with praise to anyone I know that is looking for tutoring help for their child. And now, one of my son's friends goes there too.

I can't say enough good things about Momentum. I love the atmosphere and they really help my son's confidence and learning grow.

I'm all about local programming that helps kids achieve academic success. Momentum Tutoring is filled with caring professionals who are dedicated to helping kids learn. Their founder and President, Terri Bozhor, is a certified teacher and incredible mother to two boys. Her passion and expertise inspire all of the Momentum tutors to be flexible, engaging, and effective. This is high quality work at an affordable price, and any kid or school would be lucky to have Momentum's support on their journey toward academic success.
