I will be offering writing classes again this fall and am accepting registration for new students. Below, I have given abbreviated information on the classes. Please contact me for detailed information.
What: Writing Composition class based on Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW). These classes work very well with multi-age, multi-grade children and are perfect for families wanting all the children to be taking one class at the same day/ time and working together on the same assignments at home! Great time and energy saver for mom! The class will cover vocabulary, outlining, fiction and nonfiction writing, proofing/editing, grammar rules, some basic capitalization and punctuation skills, as well as many stylistic techniques.
I encourage you to sit in on a class currently in progress to see if it looks like something in which you are interested. The classroom atmosphere with other students is one of the keys to this program’s success.
When: Wednesday mornings from Mid-August to Mid-November for the fall semester; spring semester schedule, mid-January to mid- April.
Where: Northwest Tallahassee, near the Lake Jackson Branch Library.
Deposit -: $25 nonrefundable deposit/supply fee. Contact me for a registration form to be emailed to you.
Tuition - $120 per semester, or $240 for the whole year. Tuition may be paid in full on the first day of class each semester, or arrangements may be made for monthly installments.
Supplies: The appropriate Writing Book for the course, purchased from IEW, approximately $29. Paper and pens or pencils for taking notes in class. All other supplies, I will provide for each student.
Who: Teacher: Sherry Phillips
I have been homeschooling my 6 children for the past 22 years and have been teaching IEW writing for 6 years. On request, I can provide references from past and current students’ parents.

There is a Christian distance learning program that is very budget friendly. Without that program, I would be too overwhelmed to properly home-school my child.
The organization is call Christian Liberty. I take part in their CLASS program. The CLASS program is a distance learning program for families that want to home school their children.
Their website is http://www.homeschools.org/
They do their best to keep the prices down for their programs and resources. They offer two plans: The CLASS Program and the Family Plan Program.
