Review for Momentum Tutoring, Santee, CA, USA
Where do I begin? I remember coming into the Santee Public Library to work on my reading and writing skills with Terri Bohzor, the proud founder of Momentum Tutoring. Before then I hated reading, but Terri changed my mind after our first couple sessions. She actively sought books of interest that appealed to me when I was a kid. From reading the Berenstain Bears to National Geographic books on marine animals (Jellyfish I remember mostly), I grew to love reading and learning. From then on, Momentum helped me with my math homework ranging across simple multiplication problems to algebra. I stopped going to Momentum around my freshman year in high school because my confidence in school improved. I returned my senior year in high school and became a tutor because I wanted to give back to the center that supported me all those years. Working there surprised me because I realized I still had lessons to learn. Time management, compassion, discipline, and mentoring -- these were lessons I had yet to master. Momentum was a big part of my life as a former student and tutor, but it continues to be a part of my life today. To Momentum, I thank you for all the progress I have made, and, as your name suggests, I will continue to keep my own academic momentum going.
