"I can't say enough about Cindy's teaching style. She really made me feel like I was there with her. Very warm and encouraging. She answered every question I asked very thoroughly and in a timely matter. I learned so many tips and new skills from this class. There are class sections I have watched many times. So it was nice to be able to access lessons whenever I like. I would recommend this class for students at any level."
