    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This writing course set the framework for me to write college level papers. Ms. Hintz provided helpful feedback to me on essays. This helped me improve my writing over the course of the semester.

    Course highlights:

    The most memorable parts of the course included weekly discussions with other students in the class. In addition, I enjoyed the instruction Ms. Hintz provided. I learned how to write various types of essays.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to stay on track by following the course syllabus. In addition, it is important to practice the weekly exercises in the textbook prior to each paper. This helps with understanding the expectation of the essay, as well as allows opportunity to practice the various writing skills necessary to write a successful essay. Participating in the weekly discussions is also helpful for students.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it, because my writing skills have increased dramatically. If it wasn't for that class, I wouldn't be able to write the essays I am writing today. I am still a high school student, and I have learned a great deal of knowledge that will help anyone's writing skills increase. He helps you on a personal level, so each individual will understand what he is teaching.

    Course highlights:

    I learned many things over this course. The most I personally gained from this course would be how to write in APA citation format, and how to write an essay with my personal opinion and experiences in the essay to help the reader understand what the writer is talking about.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    To take this class, it is important to make sure to get everything done on time. Along with that, it is essential to make sure that you are organized. His quizzes and tests are all open note, so there is not a ton of study and prep, other than being organized with your notes. Notes and small details are important in that class, so make sure that notes and those details he explains in class are through.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The instructor didn't get his assignments to us on time and constantly changed the due dates. He took forever to respond back after emailing him.

    Course highlights:

    The class would have been good if the instructor would have taken the time to give proper feedback.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I'd go with a different instructor and take the class at the college, not online.
