Testimonials from Clients:

Cindy Downes has been wonderful asset to our kids education. Our daughter Katie was hesitant about enrolling in Biology last year but soon realized that Mrs. Downes was a very fun and committed teacher who understood all styles of learning. Our daughter also took Marketing and Beginning Composition with Cindy last year. Because of a great experience she had, our daughter wanted to take more classes from Mrs. Downes and is now studying Intermediate Composition. Mrs. Downes is able to see what each student is capable of and encourages them to do their best. She somehow draws out each students' strengths that even they didn't know they had. Cindy is an encouragement to our family and is a shining star in the homeschool world. Thank you Mrs. Downes! ~ Wendie Oestmann, Yale, OK

Cindy was like a ray of sunshine that my daughter really needed to see! Cindy gave my daughter the confidence and positive attitude that really helped my daughter realize that she could be a good reader! Camy also looked forward to meeting with Mrs. Cindy and getting a new letter from "Manda Panda". Tutoring with Cindy was a great experience and I will go to her first when ever we need tutoring again!
~ Lauren Burns, Jenks, OK

If your child is struggling or falling behind in school, I highly recommend tutoring with Cindy for your child. My daughter fell behind in math and did not pass the state mandated EOI Algebra I test. We started tutoring over the summer and in four short months my daughter retook the EOI test and not only passed, but got a 93%!!! I can honestly say that this would not have happened without tutoring from Cindy.
