    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I absolutely LOVE this class! I have learned more about writing a good essay in the first half of the class than I learned in all of my other english classes put together. Professor Grimes is amazing. She is very helpful when I have asked questions. She doesn't expect you to know everything right when you join the class. If you don't understand MLA format, she will help you improve it from essay 1 to essay 2. If you cite your sources wrong in the first essay, she will help you cite your sources better for the next one.

    Course highlights:

    Overall, I learned how to write better. I am still a high school junior, and I am applying for college scholarships. This class really helped me prepare to write scholarship essays.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, you need to stay on top of your work. Read the textbooks as early as possible, and get your writing assignments complete earlier than the deadline so you have time to revise. If possible, write in your textbook. (I know, its crazy!) It was really helpful for me to look back in my book at notes I took there to help with writing assignments. And take lots of notes! Notes are VERY valuable when it comes to studying.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is really great as it helps you understand the fundamentals of writing a good college essay.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight was the amount of information I learned. I can now confidently write a college essay to submit for a class. It helped me get prepared and learn the amount of work of a college student.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You should always stay on top of your work. Don't wait until Sunday to do it, always divide the task and work on it a little a day if you need to. You can also carve out study times and just concentrate solely on the assignment.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I truly enjoyed not only this class but the professor! This class was my third college course through Volunteer State Community College and this was by far my favorite experience.

    Course highlights:

    This course taught me a lot of things. I learned more about writing papers, about correct grammar usage, and about citing which had always been my problem area. Melissa Joiner is patient and kind, while also very thorough. I not only learned techniques and the proper way of writing papers, but also I learned about the many resources that was available for students to use that I had otherwise not known about. There are so many websites and resources online through colleges to help check papers and help cite that have helped me immensely. The only thing I had a problem with, which I am strongly recommending to pay attention to is: DUE DATES. Pay very close attention to due dates because they can and will get you.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    As long as you read the chapter for the week, you will be fine. Also pay close attention to due dates!!! This class was not difficult in the least but I did read my chapters every week. The quizzes come word from word out of the chapters. This class is not difficult but it's hard enough that you are forced to learn even if you are not trying to.
