Brand New, Updated IEW Writing Classes

Online Classes, On YOUR Schedule

Better Video Quality, New Teaching Format

 I personally like the new format much better, and I think my students will too.

Updated Class Materials Too

I updated the class materials and pacing too, based on ten years of teaching these classes.

Holly Dodson’s

Online Classes

Holly Dodson has been teaching writing classes for years, with rave reviews from students and parents alike.  Now anyone can benefit from Holly’s acclaimed writing classes no matter where you live, or what your schedule.  Classes are online, so students can work at their own pace from the comfort of their own home.

My IEW Online Classes are now NEW and IMPROVED!  They feature high resolution video, with me teaching directly to the online audience rather than video of me teaching an in-person class.   I have also updated my content and revised the pace to better meet the needs of most students.

Each pre-recorded class includes eight  lessons, and you can begin anytime.  The cost of each class is $95.

More advanced students may enjoy my  online expository writing class.  This  class includes instruction in four types of expository (informative) essays, all aligned with common core standards:  Summaries, Compare/Contrast, Cause/Effect, and Biography.

For more information or to enroll your student, contact Holly at 951-302-0540 or [email protected]

 

All materials are included.  Each writing lesson is filmed in high definition and includes instruction and practice.  Students are given homework assignments based on the video, and Holly edits and provides feedback on all homework via email.

Online IEW Writing Classes
My popular IEW (Institute For Excellence in Writing) classes are now available online. I will provide your student with the same materials that the students in the class receive, and I will edit your student’s homework just like I do for the students in my class. If your student has questions, I am available by email. Your child will receive all the benefits of taking the class, but you don’t have to travel or fit a specific time into your schedule–your child can view the video on YOUR schedule, on any day, and at any time.
Online Writing Coach
Excellent writing skills are necessary for success both academically and professionally. Poor writing not only hurts students’ grades, but it also reflects badly on college entrance essays, cover letters for jobs, and business correspondence later in life. The earlier students can learn to recognize and correct these errors, the more natural it becomes, so they can be good life-long writers.
