It's Not Complicated:
1. Holmes went through The Writing Course 4+ times in high school (but a smart 4th grader will benefit a lot as well).
2. He wrote something almost every day of homeschool (part of how to teach kids to write)...and got the exact kind of feedback he needed (we show you how).
3. Our feedback process usually takes a lot less than 10 minutes, which keeps everyone happy. Now, he 'gets' language:
He knows why 'how it sounds' is more important than how it looks. He knows why starting with OK is better than trying to write something great · He knows how grammar works · He can tell if punctuation is correct without caring one bit about the rules · He knows how to organize his thoughts and how to get them on paper · He knows how to make his writing interesting · He knows exactly how to not worry about his writing being good or bad · He knows exactly how to get himself writing even when he doesn't know what to say. And...he knows a whole lot more
The greater benefit of The Writing Course is that kids don’t learn to HATE writing, they learn to enjoy it. Honestly, it is all the tedious rule-obsessed grammar that quenches the spirit in a child (or adult). If you think the rules are important, then great…but adding The Writing Course to your curriculum will allow your child to embrace the freedom that comes with really “getting” what language and writing is about. Honestly, writing for kids is not about grammar, it's about getting them to love sharing their own thoughts. So here’s the Deal:
Jody has insisted that our Writing Course Online solution (how to teach kids to write) would be more widespread among students if the price was more reachable. She insists that homeschool families aren't the richest folks in the world, but that they do care deeply about their children’s success.
I've pointed out that over 150,000 dollars has been invested in my formal education and that the value of what Writing Course students are learning will change their lives (and stress, and income potential) forever.
She insisted that the math will work out in supporting our own family (and all that goes into maintaining websites, advertising, avoiding viruses online, etc.).
SO… I've agreed to experiment in how to teach kids to write.
I can’t guarantee this will become the new price for the course.
All I can guarantee is that you will have a little more time special pricing here (we may keep this as the permanent price, but we may revert back if it doesn't really help us support our work more effectively).
So… this is the same writing course (includes the Essay Course), for the same money back guarantee, for the same experience of seeing your child blossom as a writer, for the same video and audio support whenever you need it.
I promise, one time through the course will change your child’s life with writing…4 times through will likely turn them (her or him) into a genuine writer. You don't really have to know how to teach kids to write, I will...but, you will help them blossom as writers.
Your responsibility…get the course…invest 5 minutes a day (really, that’s all your student will need from you)…then tell others if it works like we say. Writing for kids can often be transformed in as little as 9 Lessons so you can blab about us even sooner if you'd like)!
Why not begin this semester on the write foot :) for your student's writing future?

P.S. Any typos, etc., are free of charge (my gift to you). The whole point of writing is that we start with what we start with…then get help…then make it great. I’ll improve this letter next time. Writing for kids works the same way; they need to fearlessly start, and then learn to improve their writing as they get help and grow.
