I used to be more of a regular on the boards when I was still home schooling, but my youngest went to high school, older kids in college or graduated. So I am DONE home schooling.
I'm posting (also posting on the HS writing board) for a friend who helped start an online writing tutoring and grading service. It's something I wish had been available to me when I was teaching older kids to write, because it's not one of my own strong areas. Here is a summary with a link:
If your child (or YOU!) needs help with writing, please have a look at my new website, www.WriteOnWithDave.com . I have become partners with an English teacher at a community college, and we can help with any writing needs – for children or adults!
We specialize in:
college application essays
writing assignments for kids from 5th to 12th grade
essay-writing for college students
toasts or other public speeches
any occasion where words need to go on paper!
Essays and other submissions will be returned (within 24-48 hours) with extensive notes about strengths and trouble-spots. If desired, we can provide an estimated letter grade that the student would receive in a conventional classroom.
Package deals are available for families, or students who write a lot of papers. Our services can be accessed via email, and 1:1 Skype lessons are also available.
