Your child’s writing consultant provides 100% hand-tailored feedback, lessons, guidance, and direction, Monday through Friday, on projects and assignments that you choose or design. Other companies provide canned lessons, and only once-a-week feedback. Our instruction addresses your student’s unique needs and skills as a writer.
In our online writing courses, our students work with their own personal writing teachers on projects that are of interest to them. It’s a lot like being apprenticed to a master-writer. The relationship that develops between teacher and student is both nurturing and motivating. Our teachers encourage their students with intelligent, accurate instruction — and that’s just plain exciting.
We’ve been in business, offering online writing courses, since 1998. Our teachers are the most qualified you’ll ever find. All of them hold bachelors and masters degrees in a field related to English or writing. They have years of classroom teaching eperience. They’re pro-homeschooling. They abide by our ground-breaking teaching methods developed by our company. And all of them are published writers.
As a homeschool parent, you can tell your child’s writing teacher exactly what sort of writing projects you want him or her to work on. You can provide your own original projects, or you can incorporate assignments from an outside curriculum. Want to switch a topic in the middle of the paper? No problem! Just let your child’s teacher know.
Our teachers respond to all student work in our online writing courses within 24 hours. Most students submit their work five times a week (once per day), and receive five sets of individualized lessons and feedback in return. If you need to take a break, your writing consultant will be ready to pick up where you left off as soon as you’re ready to continue.
Writing is a reflection of what we believe. As the saying goes, “It’s personal.” As our children mature, they necessarily feel the need to protect the things they regard as private. However writing is also a means of communication, a means of interacting with audiences. We help them reconcile these two very different things.
At WriteGuide.com, we understand that writing is far more than expression. Writing represents a road map of our thoughts. It is the means by which we find our way through difficult intellectual puzzles. It is the means by which we revise our ideas and understanding.
Although our Individualized Writing Course was designed to serve the needs of one single student, it’s fine to have multiple siblings share a single session. As long as only one student submits his or her work to the family’s teacher at a time, the teacher will be happy to work with everyone.
