Time 4 Writing!

Hi Neighbors!

I recently was able to review Time 4 Writing.  My daughter took their online Middle School Mechanics.  She helps on the blog and we figured this would help to improve her writing skills.  (Sometimes I think I need to re-take a course!)  Anyway, I have to say I really enjoyed her using this system.  She is assigned a teacher, who grades all her assignments.  If she has questions, she has access to her teacher through email.  Each day all she does is sign in, complete her assignment for the day, submit it and then wait for it to be graded.  The teacher usually has it graded by that evening!  Super!



The teachers she has had have all been great about grading and leaving her feedback when she has needed it.  She did have to change teachers about a week or so ago as her original teacher is on maternity leave.  It was a very smooth transfer though and we didn't see any major differences between the teachers.

Now, let me tell you a little about Time4Writing.  These are one on one writing courses taught by certified teachers.  They offer 8 week writing courses for elementary through high school.  The eight week course is $99.  They also have some free writing resources available on their site.  Your child can greatly benefit from using Time4Writing.

I believe it really helped improve my daughter's writing and given her more confidence in her abilities. She is almost finished with her 8 week course and she has done great.  I think she actually enjoys being in charge of her course this way, being able to choose when she works on the course and how fast she wants to go.  She logs in, completes her assignments and turns them in.  There are quizzes she is to take.  Her teacher grades assignments and quizzes and turns them back in with comments and or explanations.  She is able to go back and correct her errors.  Also as I stated earlier, she can email her teacher at any time with any questions she has.  Their response has always been quick and easy to understand.

About Time4Writing Middle School courses:
The middle school writing courses start at the beginner level with a basic writing mechanics course, which focuses on writing fundamentals such as sentences vs. fragments, subjects and predicates, subject-verb agreement and capitalization. Intermediate courses include writing enhancements, paragraph writing and a middle school essay writing course that is designed to strengthen the student's ability to write a well-structured essay. The advanced middle school writing course teaches students to find their voice and create essays that match style and media. Online writing tutoring by certified teachers ensures middle school students are as proficient constructing a solid paragraph as they are crafting a well-balanced essay.

This sounds like a great program. I'm definitely going to check it out for my daughter, who is entering middle school this year.

How does home schooling prepare the teen for college and/or advanced professional degrees?

Does home schooling provide adequate science lab experiences? (biology, chemistry, physics)

Are parents able to teach higher mathematics like trigonometry, pre-calculus? Computer science? These are required if your daughter or son hopes to attend college and enter medical school.
