Great approach, and very competent.

After my session with Cindy, I had a greater grasp of Excel. She made the experience very pleasant, and had a disposition that made me enjoy going over the areas that were most difficult for me. I am sure to continue using her tutoring.

Burton , 4 lessons with Cindy

Wonderful tutor with a great sense of humor

Cindy was able to answer my questions in a way that not only got me where I needed to be, but stepped back to lay a foundation of the material to get me there. She was patient, well prepared, and knew exactly how to work with an adult learner. I would highly recommend and will be using again.

Graham, 1 lesson with Cindy

Great help

Cindy was patient and explained and demonstrated to me through a blending process in Photoshop that was giving me issue. She did a great job and she and I will be working together more in the future.

John, 1 lesson with Cindy

She dove right in. She knew how to navigate through my subject matter to arrive to a point where I could make my way around and extended a hand for play by play assistance. I highly recommend her service.
