Review for Momentum Tutoring, Santee, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our son is a freshman at a local HS. While he was high-achieving in middle school, the transition to 9th grade (with 3 honors classes, a MUCH larger school, different technology for grading, etc. ) was a bit rough. Suddenly he was getting Cs in some classes and that had never happened before. His math teacher told us that several of the high-performing students at the HS were employed as tutors at Momentum; and we are so glad that we went and met with Terri. She aligned us with an excellent tutor, Matthew, and now our son's grades have improved. He and Matt are a very good fit and in addition to being a very good tutor, Matt is an excellent academic role model as well. Our son is no longer behind in Algebra 2H. With the combination of "at school" tutoring, and the 1:1 work with Matthew, his grade has gone from a C to an A in Math. And recently, he got his first A on an essay in English Honors. Matthew can provide alot of support not only in math but also English (the writing... !) and other subjects and better study habits and organization. Sometimes, to a high achieving student who has never really "had" to study... these things do not come naturally and extra help is needed. Our only regret about Momentum Tutoring is that we didn't find it sooner.
