Essay Prep lays the foundation for the essay writing classes
If you are interested in your high school student learning the academic formats for essay writing, you will want to check out our Essay Prep series of classes.
- Essay Prep: Dynamic Thinking - An especially good one to start with. This teaches the flexible thinking required for academic essays.
- Essay Prep: Reading the Essay - We think it's important to read actual essays before students are asked to write any!
- Essay Prep: Research & Citation - Get help finding credible sources and citing them in a short research-based project.
These classes lay the foundation for Expository Essay: Exploratory & Persuasive, which teaches the primary writing format used in high school and college essays.
Dynamic Thinking, Research & Citation, and Expository Essay: Exploratory & Persuasive cover much of the same material as our digital product Help for High School.
Once your student is comfortable with the five-paragraph essay form, you may like to consider some of our more advanced essay classes:
- Expository Essay: Rhetorical Critique & Analysis
- College Admissions Essay
- MLA Research Essay
- Advanced Composition
Note that Advanced Composition and MLA Research Essay are rigorous classes. Before taking these classes, your student should have had a good amount of practice and be very comfortable with essay writing.
