TESTIMONIES
 
“She is really enjoying the class and is growing in many areas.  Thank you so much for offering this.  My older two did it by themselves.  Although they did benefit, this is better by far.” ~ Donna, Texas

 “Thank you for equipping us all to stand against the current. Thank you for teaching even when it got tough. Thank you for showing us truth. Thank you for living that truth. I'm sure it was evident in my work, but the first semester was a hard time for me….There is no way I could ever begin to tell you how much you and your class have affected and will continue to affect my life. Thank you for your perseverance with me and the rest of our class. Thank you for running the race.” ~Lynne, student

"Jenn is able to stay on top of all her assignments due to your clear expectations, meticulously outlined syllabus, your prompt emails with further explanations, and all your excellent reviews and encouragement in class to help her master all of this subject matter.  Thank you for being so dependable and available to help her when she needed it.  My daughter and I just love your class!" ~ Shyre, Maryland

My son, Ryan, took several online classes for the first time this year.  Your class was my favorite.  Reading your communications with the class left no doubt in my mind that you are a teacher that really cares and really wants every child to succeed at writing.  There was something special about your enthusiastic approach to giving constructive feedback.  I told Ryan that not every teacher cares as much as Mrs. Flowers and that he was really fortunate to have you in his first year of online classes.  I wanted to email you all year. Thank you! –Diane

My daughter has absolutely loved your class! I just recently went back and reread your reply to an email I sent you about my concern for the workload in the beginning of the year. You were so right about everything. I am so glad that I reached out to you and that we didn't give up on the class. Julia has grown so much spiritually and academically over these past months. It's been awesome to hear her talk about all she is learning. You have been such a huge blessing for our school year! ~ Maureen, Connecticut

“I enrolled my sophomore daughter in Cathy Flowers' class this year and think it might rank as the best tuition money I have ever spent. Before taking the online class, I would have described my daughter as a fairly decent writer. Now 2 1/2 months later, she writes more elegant, complex sentences and paragraphs. Without me having to prompt her to do so, she uses the IEW approach in all of her other classes with excellent results. What I especially appreciate is having a second pair of eyes reviewing and commenting on my daughter's essays.”  --Joyce

“I appreciate all of your work on our behalf!! At the end of summer as I ordered the books and textbooks you have chosen for them to read for these classes, I was so excited for my children, and felt so very blessed to have you working alongside us investing in the minds and hearts of our young adults!!” ~ Rachel, Maryland

Thanks again, “I enjoy hearing the class when I can and think your teaching is helping Kyle learn writing in a way that motivates and encourages him. I say a big thanks to God, and inwardly to you, every time I hear the class. Thank you!” Laura, OH

“Thank you, Cathy, for coaching all of us through these first few months.  Hannah is feeling comfortable in the class and we are seeing an excitement for learning.  Your availability to answer student emails has helped her so much. So much of what you said resonated with me today. As I see her struggle with ideas and how to express them, I am even more grateful for this course because she is owning her work and her worldview like never before. Many thanks for your investment in your students.”  ~Amy, Ohio

"I wanted to share with you the video of when Garrison spoke at our church.  All the knowledge he has taken in this year is amazing, and the wisdom he has gained will surely bless him in the years to come. This video, however, I think shows the greatest gift of all that he has received [God’s grace].  Thank you so very much for all that you have poured into him and the prayers you prayed.  He came a long way from that bumpy beginning!  Many blessings to you!"~Mindy, Indiana

“Thank you so much Cathy!!  This must be a lot of work for you...classes, all the grading.  Honestly, it was an answer to an unspoken prayer.  God is so good to us that He even answers prayers before we pray them.  Looking forward to next year for my two.  I've still got one more finishing up 5th grade.  I hope and pray she will be able to take your classes as well.  (Now that prayer was spoken!:)  We really are so very thankful for your efforts for the Kingdom.” ~ Kim, New York

“Mrs. Cathy Flowers does an excellent job teaching the Starting Points course. The course is challenging, but she does a great job helping her students to succeed. For example, she provides detailed checklists to help students with their compositions. She responds to questions over email quickly and thoughtfully. Our son is enjoying the class, and we can see the improvements in his writing.”~ Matt, Indiana

"As our family continues to study with Cornerstone tutorials for the fourth year, we have proven Mrs. Flowers' ability to lead students through challenging curricula with integrity and skill. Our students, ages 17 and 12, have improved tremendously in their ability to read critically, write with style and structure, and present their ideas rhetorically to their intended audience. If you want to help your student to meet the demands of a culture lacking in moral resolve, do not hesitate to enroll your son or daughter today in Cornerstone Tutorials' Starting Points or World Views courses with Mrs. Flowers!” ~ Heather, Kentucky

“Cathy's three year mentoring and tutoring of our son in Excellence in Writing with grammar and World Views of the Western World Cornerstone Curriculum has taken a reluctant writer into one that creatively writes as a hobby several hours every day!  He also has a new found affinity for the classics and great books, reading them for enjoyment.  Cathy Flowers is a Godsend to our homeschool.  Her knowledge and enthusiasm for these subjects is incredible and far outpaces my ability.  Over three years she has given us AP/Honor level learning and it shows in my son's enthusiasm for her class and in his score on recently taken college exams.  Cathy's mentoring of my children has given them confidence, motivated them to excellence, and inspired and equipped them to stand for truth.  I highly recommend Cathy’s Cornerstone Tutorials!” ~ Debi, Kentucky

“Our daughter has learned things from you I could have never taught her. She has learned and grown so much in her reading, writing, organizing skills through your class. She is better prepared to attend classes next fall at the community college near us. Thank you for all the time and effort you put into the class. Truly you were a gift from God to us! ~ Joan, Ohio
