I recently learned about Momentum Tutoring when they reached out to my company to help educate their students. Terri and her team are so dedicated to giving back to the community, engaging high school and colleague students to mentor young students and to teach about a broad array of important topics. I had a blast meeting the students and Momentum team during a two-day program I did with them last month. I highly recommend others get involved - as students, volunteers, mentors, etc.

Momentum tutoring provides educational and life skills for those needing help in succeeding in education. My daughter has blossomed in her confidence attending elementary and now high school. She is succeeding at school where general education could not assist her. Momentum has changed her and ours lives!

My daughter Grace has grown and achieved so much by spending time at Momentum for four years. From a girl who didn't enjoy reading to someone who now enjoys graphic novels and puts the effort into improving her grades, we are so pleased. Momentum has given her support, education and pride in who she is today.

I have had the great privilege of working with Terri. Her passion for teaching is such a breath of fresh air. She really cares about the children she works with. She is always researching and finding new ways to introduce fun concepts to help facilitate learning that keep up with the current curriculum. She also reinforces a positive working environment so each child will grow in confidence. Momentum Tutoring is a shinning star!

What a wonderful tutoring camp. My son comes home every single day asking if he can stay another week. He raves about the teacher and the aids involvement. Everyone there is professional and truly care about every single child. I can't tell you how impressed I am .

As a volunteer with Momentum Tutoring I have had a wonderful experience! All the employees/employers did a fantastic job training and helping me adjust to the job, they helped me through every step of the way with great kindness and understanding. At this job I feel like a part of a team that truly cares about what they are doing and how they are doing it. I don't have a single bad word to say about Momentum Tutoring.

Where do I even start? First of all, Momentum Tutoring not only helps students with their studies in school, but this organization also fuels their self esteem and willingly gives it's all to help each individual student. I got involved with Momentum after volunteering for a month during the summer school and then was hired on as a tutor and it has been such a great experience. Right from the start I knew there was no other place that I wanted to work at because Momentum was perfect for me. The environment there really helps students feel comfortable and everyone who works there becomes good friends with the students. You can really tell that everyone just wants all the other people around them to succeed as well, and so each person helps others to the best of their ability. I would recommend Momentum Tutoring for every student, whether they just need that little extra boost to do homework and get a better grade or they need one on one instruction to be able to understand clearly how to do certain assignments.

I am absolutely in love with Momentum Tutoring. The close relationships I created with my supervisors, fellow volunteers, parents and students is incredible. I am extremely grateful to have had my first job there. It has given me many leadership opportunities which has helped me in college among other things. Just having this job has helped me gain confidence in anything and everything I do. I have gained responsibility and learned the meaning of respect, compassion, and hard work that has helped me in my college life, work life and personal life. I even learned patience which I never thought I could learn.

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.

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.

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.

Momentum Tutoring has a level of care and dedication that amaze me. I currently work for Momentum Tutoring and can not believe how excited the students are to come in and learn. Terry takes the time to personally match students to tutors and it really shows. The students learn and grow with each session and it is really a special experience.

I have been working for Momentum since 2007 on and off. I can honestly say that there is no better Tutoting Center than Momentum. It is made up of awesome staff, awesome students and supportive parents. I have had the honor of working with Terri whom gives off her fun spirit and passion for the students success to her employees. When I first started working for Momentum I wasn't sure what I was going to do career wise but after a few months I figured out I wanted to be a teacher. Momentum opened my heart and passion for wanting to help students succeed. Momentum has provided me with a flexible job where I can work hours outside of school. Everyday is something new and I know that as excited as I am to go to work our kids are excited as well to go to tutoring.

I have been working as a tutor at Momentum for about three years now and can't even begin to describe the affect it has had on my life and others. I couldn't imagine ever walking away from this organization, my students, and my fellow tutors; they are all like family. Momentum has helped me find my path and discover my passion for helping others. I have seen students walk into our main center hopeless, on the brink of failing and I have seen them walk out smiling, waving around A papers and tests. It is the students that drive Momentum: their energy, their efforts, their determination and dedication. Momentum Tutoring was Terri's dream and through her efforts she has fulfilled the dreams of hundreds of students and their families. Anyone who has gotten a chance to be a part of this organization can vouch for that!

As a volunteer at Momentum, I can fully attest to the fact that this nonprofit organization has helped so many students with a multitude of obstacles. A warm and welcoming working environment, Momentum gives children the opportunity to work and ask questions in a comfortable manner. And the whole experience is not just enriching for the kids. I know from my experience here that all the tutors enjoy working with the kids and helping them achieve their everyday and long term goals. And of course, Mrs. Bozhor is an amazing leader and example for everyone at Momentum!

I am currently a volunteer at Momentum, and witness first hand the academic growth of our clients. This program offers services to a large variety of ages; each tutor able to adjust his or her skills to best suit the student. Personally, I enjoy providing my knowledge and study techniques to children who are enrolled at the same elementary school I once went to. Students arrive to Momentum eager to learn and improve their grades. Furthermore, Momentum has given myself the opportunity to gain experience in a field wish to enter as a career choice.
