Course Description

So many college students are sadly surprised by how different writing in college is from what they were used to in high school.By the time they learn the ropes it is already too late as it has cost them their GPA. That does not have to happen to you.

I want to help you get the competitive edge right from the beginning so that you can spend your time having fun instead of struggling to get your head above water in your classes.

I can assure you that this course will be worth the few coffees you have to ditch to join it.

Congrats to you for putting your future first!
