“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”

Benjamin Franklin

Our Mission

We walk beside you through a course covering an intimidating subject. In fact, we do so much of the teaching for you that you don’t open your Teacher’s Manual (TM) until you’re well into the first lesson. Simply start by watching the efficient yet powerful movie with your students. Use your TM to edit their work. Slowly, step back to allow them to learn from the videos on their own. Along this path, your kids will become more secure writers and more careful thinkers.



We are committed to excellence.
We empower parents using WriteShop I or II to educate their children.
We provide comprehensive courses for homeschooling parents.
We make education fun for students and their teachers.

 WriteShop has expressly authorized us to create this video companion for their books. Visit Our Courses and Our Services pages to learn more about the help we offer to enhance your teen’s life. The videos correspond with both the 5th edition student workbook and the 4th edition student workbook.
