Time4Writing Course Testimonials
Parents are saying:
“We live overseas so T4W is a real life-saver for us. No matter where we are, we have access to our daughter’s courses. We like that they are all self-paced; since we live in Asia, live online classes from the US are often difficult for us because of the big time difference. I also appreciate that fact that you don’t have fixed starting/ending dates for your courses–our 8 weeks start whenever we register. This is also an advantage for us because the school/break schedule here is different from America which can also make it hard for us to access online US-based courses that follow the US school/holiday schedule.
My husband and I are actually English teachers ourselves (ESL teachers here), and I used to teach basic English writing to ESL college students. I assumed I would have no problem teaching writing to our daughter–however, since writing isn’t her ‘love’ and she found it hard to accept my feedback, it became a really challenging endeavor (and as you all know, it takes lots of time to plan, evaluate, and grade writing assignments!). I feel that T4W courses have set both of us free, so to speak–I’m relieved of the ‘burden’ of being the writing teacher, and she has truly applied herself and learned so much in all of the courses. Sometimes, she even finds herself actually enjoying it! 🙂 I think it has been very good for her to learn how to interact with and respond to feedback from teachers other than me–a valuable life skill!
One more thing–I have found that your customer service is excellent. Over the years, whenever there has been the rare problem or glitch, you guys always respond quickly and effectively.
I often recommend you to my home-schooling friends, and I know of at least one family that has been taking your courses this year as a result. I just wish you had a few more high school courses!” — Parent of a High School Paragraphs student
“I just wanted to let you know that I loved all the feedback that you gave Daniel during this course! The course was a great fit for Daniel. I love the course and have recommended your website and programs to other parents. I feel the strong points of your program are the very short, targeted lessons, the specific feedback given within 24 hours, and the opportunity to extend the eight-week timeframe if needed. We are planning to start Middle School Essay Writing on Monday.” — Parent of a Middle School Paragraphs student
“Charles gained the confidence that he CAN write, and write well. The teacher was very encouraging, but didn’t let him off the hook when he thought he couldn’t do the assignment. Even though it was challenging for him, he made it through the class and got A’s and B’s on all of his assignments.” — Parent of a High School Essay student
“My son’s favorite part of the class was the personal feedback. His class teacher, Jennifer, left personal feedback on each and every one of his lessons. He LOVED having someone besides Mom give him input on his work.”
— Parent of a Middle School Basic Mechanics student
“Her father and I are quite proud of our daughter’s progress. Time4Writing has been a godsend. We’ll definitely be enrolling in more classes.” — Parent of a Middle School Essay student
“Just wanted to let you know that my son is happily writing for the first time ever. He really enjoys the feedback and is finally believing that he is a good writer. Thanks to you and Time4Writing for unlocking his potential.” — Parent of an Elementary Writing student
“As a homeschooling mom I am so relieved to find a course that allows my child access to objective feedback from a writing instructor.” — Parent of an Elementary Paragraph Writing student
“We are using and LOVING Time4Writing! My son’s teacher does such a good job balancing correction with praise and encouragement. He is learning and growing more than ever! I plan to use this with ALL of my children as we go along.” — Parent of a Middle School Essay student
“My daughter’s writing is above average for her age. Because of this, her teachers at school always give her praise, but no real solid feedback on how to improve her writing. With Time4Writing, she got both.” — Parent of an Advanced Middle School Essay student
Students are saying:
“I gained a lot from the Time4writing course. I can now write narrative and expository essays as well as dialogue with confidence. I have learned how to create a paragraph that features a clear topic sentence, supporting details, dialogue, and a vivid closing sentence. With the help of Ms. Leslie, my incredible teacher, I have brought my writing to an entirely new level. I am glad to have participated in the Time4Writing course.” — Student taking the Middle School Essay course
“I believe that this course has improved my essay writing skills. I can now effectively organize my thoughts and insert dialogue into any type of essay. I have also acquired the ability to write an essay faster. The teacher is great, and every time I make a mistake, she explains what I did wrong. I recommend this course to anyone who wants to become a better writer.” — Student taking the Middle School Essay course
“I am glad I took this writing course. It has helped me to become a better writer in many ways.” — Student taking the Middle School Mechanics course
“I am sad that my course has come to an end. I especially enjoyed getting feedback from my teacher. Also, I liked getting to make corrections and then resubmitting my essays. Finally, I liked how each topic worked on different paragraphs when writing the expository essay. I loved the High School Essay Writing course.” — Student taking the High School Essay course
“I have really enjoyed this class because it has improved my writing. I found some of the work challenging, but I am always up for a good challenge. This past week I wanted to turn off my computer when I began to struggle. Thank you for your being patient and helping me. Your teaching has been a very big help!” — Student taking the High School Essay course
“I feel that I have learned quite a lot. I already knew some of it like the topic and closing sentences, but I didn’t know about narrative and expository paragraphs. I never really knew how many details to use though. I really think that you have helped me out an enormous amount. Thank you!” — Student taking the Middle School Essay course
