Description

This is not your typical grammar course!

When you are told to do a writing assignment do you feel “funny” in your stomach? Does it take you forever to get started? You are not alone.  

I designed this course basically for adults who are going back to college after being out for a number of years. It is also for those adults who are already in college but are not getting high grades due to grammar mistakes. Professional working adults can also use this class as a refresher. This is not a comprehensive course. This is not a beginner English course. In this one hour fast-pace course,  I will focus on six key elements of English Grammar. I will share the formula I used in college that helped me to write well.  In One Hour you will learn: 

-The King and Queen of Parts of Speech

-The Glue that holds a sentence together

-Three Fundamental Sentence Structures

-The Hamburger Recipe  

- Much More

This is my story. I am a native English speaker. My family has been in the United States at least eight generations. We are located in the Southern part of the United States. I have a heavy Southern accent. I do not always pronounce words correctly. I do not always say words with the proper agreement and tense. However, I did not write in college the way I speak.  Between getting good grades on my writing assignments and being a good test taker, I was able to earn three college degrees.  

Reduce writing anxiety. Earn better grades. Take This Class!

Here is a little bit about Me...

I am Ericka Bellamy Joseph (E.B. Joseph). I am a retired U.S. Marine of over 20 years. I have been Debt Free (8+), a Homeowner (16+) and a Homeschool Mom (4). I am the owner/CEO of Plan2Win Solutions, LLC. What I do best is consolidate information into simple to follow formats. When I retired from the military, I had two dreams-homeschool my child and work for myself. It started with writing the books that were floating in my brain and now it has blossomed into much more.
