Online Writing Courses

Hi, my name is Michelle and I am like most homeschooling parents, wanting to make sure that my boys have a well rounded education. Along with that, there are areas that I can not teach as well as I would like. We all have our favorite subjects to teach but writing has never been one that I have excelled in teaching my boys, so I went to the internet and found a homeschool online writing program. The wonderful thing about this program is that your child has a real life writing teacher, that grades their work for you. My middle school son has gotten much better in his writing since taking the first Middle School Basic Writing Mechanics course. Another plus is that I decided to start having my son be responsible for getting their work done without me having to tell him. Everything is laid out for the students once they log in, and when they finish a section the teacher grades it before they move on. I was a little worried about if he would finish on time but he did a great job! For him writing is not the favorite subject but he got a B, proud mother moment.

This is a great way to get some homeschool writing class in this summer, without it being alot of extra work for the parents.
