On-Line Classes from Write Well

Great News for those choosing on-line options!

Choose from six different on-line classes for students of all ages, from young elementary age through high school. Each class can be completed in six weeks, or extended to a pace set by individual families. Except for the accelerated highest level class, courses cost only $135, with unlimited individualized help offered through email communication. I have many other courses in the wings; often student/parent interest drives me to put the finishing touches on a work in progress. Click on the FutureCoursePlans link to view more possibilities. Feel free to email me with suggestions.

  • Plenty of Opportunities to Connect! I have been delighted by the opportunities on-line classes have created for families, who live far away and/or whose busy lives interfere with in-house classes. After putting the hard work of class preparation into creating the classes, I can focus all my time and energy on helping students and parents one-on-one, through weekly email correspondence.
  • Weight off Homeschool Parent's Shoulders! Teaching writing can seem a daunting task. So many curriculums for purchase require too much preparation or encourage twaddle. This approach to writing combines years of school and homeschool teaching experience, with a high quality presentation and an innovative, simplified approach, which incrementally leads children in skills development while providing a variety of starting points for different ages and writing temperments. In addition, Writewell tutorials offer personalized, one-on-one instruction and encouragement, from an experienced teacher and attuned homeschool mom.
  • So Little Time Required Each Week! Most courses require only 15 minutes a few days a week. Watch your child progress rapidly in his writing skills with a curriculum that takes you step-by-step, with a variety of courses designed to meet the needs of so many writers-in-training, and with limitless opportunities for one-on-one assistance.
  • A Real Bargain! Most classes cost only $100 for six weeks of instruction and assignments, with unlimited opportunities for personalized help via email communication. The Mastering Essay-Writing class costs $150, but most students choose a 12 week pace, which is still a bargain.
