Student Testimonial

“It's a great review of grammar and been a big help filling in my weak spots. Lessons are a good length - not too long so I feel like I can do some when I have 30 minutes. It's covered areas where I'm weak and my strengths, but all of it has been very helpful.”

FAQs

  • Why should I take your classes?

    • Meet employer demands for good writers and proofreaders.
    • Build your résumé with marketable writing skills and earn more money.
    • Learn new skills for career pivots or to start a home-based writing/editing/proofreading business.
    • Improve your writing to achieve academic success.
    • Upgrade your writing skills to produce engaging media content.
  • Is there a time limit on enrollment?

    Most classes for individual users come with lifetime access. If not, please note the class duration and complete the course before the expiration date (if any).

  • Why are there no refunds?

    All enrollments are final. No refunds. Our courses have taken copious amounts of time and personal finances to build. We are confident that all of our courses deliver the exact instruction you need to improve your writing skills. Please take our low-cost introductory class, "Grammar Essentials Jump-start" to get a good feel for the value you receive at such affordable prices. You will not be disappointed!

  • When will I receive my certificate?

    When you have completed all lessons and assignments, you will receive a certificate within 24-48 hours after you have finished the class, not to exceed 7 days after you have finished, depending on holidays and high class volumes.

  • What about monthly payments & bundles?

    If offered, students can split the course price into two (2) or three (3) monthly payments. Monthly payments will incur a small processing fee, so the total paid will be slightly higher than the listed class price.

    If a monthly subscription payment is missed for any reason (e.g., card expiration or lack of funds), the system will automatically try to recover payment three (3) times. If the outstanding payment is successfully made during these attempts, course access will be restored.

    Although missed payments will immediately prevent access to course content, progress toward completion will be saved. When payment has been restored, students can simply continue the course from where they left off.

    However, if all three attempts at processing the payment fail, the monthly subscription will be removed and access to the course revoked. After three failed payments, progress will not be saved, and the student must purchase the course or bundle again and start over.

    This process also applies to bundles. Bundles give students access to a collection of classes for one monthly price, instead of paying for each class individually.

    Remember, you receive a certificate for each individual class completed. You do not have to complete every class in the bundle to receive a certificate.

    You can cancel at any time, but you are advised to completely finish a class and receive a certificate before cancellation.
