  1. Parent Course Evaluation Spring 2021

    "We have used Susan Wise Bauer’s grammar curriculum at home, but because I was never taught grammar so well, my student would have questions that I could not always answer. Signing her up for the class was a wise decision."

    "The teacher made grammar fun, and showed me (and hopefully the rest of my class) the fun in diagramming! I would recommend the grammar courses to anyone looking to improve their grammar or to learn about the English language."
