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 finish, 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.
