Grammar is not effectively taught in most schools.

But, good writing starts with good grammar!

Before students can tackle an essay, they must know how to put words and sentences together effectively. Due to unfortunate circumstances, teachers cannot always provide writing fundamentals in the classroom. In "Student Success Grammar Skills," students will learn the English grammar and language rules they absolutely must know to improve their writing. This class covers practically all of the grammar basics that students need to know for successful academic writing in middle school, high school, and college.

As a result of taking this class, you will:
  • Learn to correct the most common grammar errors.
  • Get familiar with writing good sentences.
  • Learn from a dynamic college English instructor with over 20 years’ experience who has recently published six books on grammar and proofreading, and actively freelances as a writer and editor.
