    As a Freelance writer and proofreader, I decided to enroll in this course to refresh my grammar skills. I enjoyed the video presentations and reviewing the slides afterwards helped to retain certain information. I found the lessons on subject/verb agreement and prepositions to be very helpful, as these are subjects in writing that I still struggle with. Overall, I would recommend this course to anyone who is open to proofreading on a professional level.

    The title is an acceptable representation of the course.

    Nancy Lynne Holt

    The lessons were great reminders of grammatical rules. The demonstrations of using a thesaurus and a dictionary were especially helpful.

    • Can I pay for someone else to take the class?

      Yes, absolutely. You can gift the class by paying for the fee, but allowing someone else to complete the course. In this case, you will click the “Buy” button on the course landing page, and pay for the class as usual. But, do not enter the class! Ignore the welcome message in your inbox. Instead, forward your payment receipt to the Director's email address along with a note that includes the first name, last name, and email address of the person who will actually enroll in the class. The Director will manually enroll the student, which means they will have direct access to the course content without paying the fee, because you have already paid for them. Contact the Director for further guidance.

    • Why am I seeing a "welcome back, sign in before purchase” message?

      At some point, you probably signed up for a free preview and the system recognizes your email address. You have two options to bypass this message and continue with your purchase: 1) Clear your browsing data. Use your current system recognized email address and try to reset your password. –OR– 2) First, clear your browsing data. Refresh the course landing page and retry your purchase. When you get to the payment screen, use a different email address and a different password. If you can use a different computer or a mobile device, this will also help to totally clear any previous visits. This way, you won't get that welcome message and you can pay as normal.
