There is so much I need to do to prepare my kids for life that I don't know how to fit it all in.  SAT prep is important but with foreign language requirements, science labs, essay writing, and extra curricular activities when do we get it all done?  I jumped at the chance to review Time4Writing's composition classes.  As a 10th grader, this was the perfect time to expose my daughter to the Essay Writing for the SAT course.  Princess feels comfortable with writing essays but she has never written a timed essay.

Time4Writing courses are 8 week courses.  We are in the middle of the course and it has been a good experience.  It is also the first time my high schooler has taken an online class.  The online format is easy to navigate so submitting her work has been a breeze.  We've received great feedback from the instructor usually within 48 hours.  She suggests ways my daughter can improve her writing.  Then she revises and submits a final copy for grading.  I enjoyed receiving a status report of how my child was doing with her grade mid way through the course.

My daughter enjoys the fact that she can do the assignments at her own pace and the teacher is quick in grading her assignments.  She says she also enjoys how precise and specific the instructor's directions are (her words exactly).

Time4Writing offers basic, intermediate, and advanced writing courses for elementary, middle, and high school students.  Courses include grammar and mechanics, paragraph writing, and essays.  All 8 week courses are $99.  I am familiar with a lot of companies that offer online writing courses and this has to be the most economical.  Their price structure has to be my most favorite feature.  The price makes it affordable for your student to take multiple classes in an academic school year.
