“This course turned out to be better than I expected. The teacher’s impressive; she taught us how to write well through in-class lectures and after-class writing assignments. I learned how descriptions and examples can make essays so much stronger, how to replace weaker words with stronger ones, and so many other valuable things. Through this course, my writing improved a lot.”

“I would definitely recommend this course to others because it really has helped me grow in my writing skills. While at the beginning of the year, I would not have known how to write an essay at all, I now have successfully written several. I also have grown in my grammar skills, vocabulary skills, and my writing skills in general. Why, I bet at the beginning of the year, I would not have been able to write a paragraph like this.”

“Before I took this class, writing essays never appealed to me, but now, I have gained a lot of knowledge about writing, and my writing skill has improved very much. Not only did the instructor teach essay writing, but students can also learn grammar in the class. Students often work in breakout rooms as a group to do research or check each other’s essays and leave encouraging, specific, and polite comments. Thanks to Writing 6, I started to enjoy writing greatly.”

“When you don’t know grammar into its depths, but you really enjoy writing, this is the course for you! I honestly took this course to simply get better at writing stories, but I got better at a lot more than just that. I have learned about different kinds of sentences, verbs, punctuation marks, and much more, and have been able to fit that into the writing I did in this course! It has been so much fun, and I have learned a lot. If you’re worried about the teachers though, you shouldn’t be! They are so sweet, very patient, and careful about making sure you understand. You aren’t piled with a whole bunch of assignments either. This is a wonderful class!”

“This is the best writing course I have ever had! I learned so many writing skills, and best of all, the teacher’s feedback on my writing was unbelievably detailed! Students will learn to write a variety of essays including fiction, memoir, persuasive, and descriptive. Also, I have understood many complicated grammars through this class. All in all, in my personal opinion, this course is wonderful for elementary writing.”
