Test Drive: Time4Writing

Rate this Entry
A few weeks ago, I posted about our experience using Time4Learning (click here to read about it). Last week, a representative from Time4Writing, a program created by Time4Learning designed to help improve students' writing, and offered me the opportunity to try a writing course. It couldn't have come at a better time - I had just been pondering how to help improve my fifth-grade daughter's academic writing over the summer break. As such, I am excited to be using a summer writing program to reinforce our writing skills with Time4Writing. With the guidance of an online tutor, who is a certified teacher, we will be taking one of their eight-week online writing courses. Come visit in a few weeks for a progress report. I will be writing an in-progress review as well as a final review after my daughter finishes the course.

    Between my two sons we've probably taken four different courses at Time4Writing and each one has been incredibly helpful. I could see BIG jumps in their writing progress and even their attitude toward writing after completing each one. Look forward to your review!

    My oldest (8th grade) has taken one T4W course so far, and actually asked to take another. He loves writing creatively, but he definitely needed a little more instruction than I could provide on my own, especially in the mechanics and grammar areas. We could see the differences, and what he was learning, immediately! More importantly, HE could see the differences and what he was learning, and that was so exciting for him!

    I hope that you have a great experience with T4W, and I'm looking forward to checking back in to see your thoughts!

    I'm excited for you! My kids have used Time4Writing and really enjoyed it. I like that they learn from a certified teacher, too. They loved reading the feedback on each assignment that their teacher left for them! My kiddos learned a ton! Enjoy!

    I'm so glad I discovered these reviews. My daughter struggles with her writing, I have added TFL to my favorites and plan to give it a closer look for her! thanks!
