Learning to write is a process much like learning to play the piano or learning to draw. The more you practice, the better you become. Using direct writing prompts, journaling, hands-on writing activities, and modeling, this class will help students to become independent writers as they explore the writing process in a positive and affirming learning environment. Special focus will be on the following essays: Personal Narrative, Process, Definition, Compare/Contrast, and Persuasive.

Please Note
It has been my experience that smaller classes are more successful as they allow for more individualized attention and a more comfortable learning environment. Based on this belief, I will make decisions regarding the organization of the classes based on the registrations I receive. I will be sure to keep you informed early of any changes I wish to make to the schedule and will work very hard to make these changes convenient for everyone.

Comments from Parents of Writing Class Students
"My girls were very reluctant to take a writing class, but Theresa made it fun for them. They really enjoyed it and at the end of the course actually told me to 'beg her to do another class' ".
Karen Hackmeister - Home School Mom

"Theresa's class brought a depth to writing instruction that I could not provide in a home school environment. Theresa's positive approach to teaching was a blessing to my son who struggles with writing. Every week he really looked forward to the class."
