    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Ms. Haley is a certified John Tyler Community College professor and is amazing at her job. She teaches her students in a step by step process that prepares students for college without the stress and strict grading of an actual college class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to conduct research and the proper way to write a college research paper.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't procrastinate. Ms. Haley doesn't check everything that is homework but it will need to be done in the future for big papers. When you wait, you end up having all this other work to do aside from the paper.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    In this class, we focused on analyzing and writing. I found it incredibly interesting to learn the way that authors incorporate much deeper meanings into works that seem purely for entertainment. I also learned how to write well in a short time span: usually an entire organized essay in around 40 minutes.

    Course highlights:

    I think that this course taught me the most of what I know about writing and analyzing. I learned what comprises a good writing strategy and how to use what I know to the best of my abilities in a short time span. I learned basics of grammar and how to organize an essay. Writing these essays also taught me time management skills because of the sheer amount we were required to write within a certain amount of time. I also learned how to find deeper meaning and themes in novels and poems, which was one of my favorite parts of the class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In this class, you need to have a very good work ethic. You have to be willing to put in the time to improve yourself, and you have to understand that everything in the class is designed to help you. You also need to be able to speak up in order to participate in discussions. Oftentimes I would find myself thinking that a certain idea was wrong, only for someone else to say it out loud and find out that that was the right answer all along.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class you read good amount of short essays and do a good bit of minor work as well.

    Course highlights:

    The best thing about this course is the instruction on how to write an essay. I have never had that much grammar instruction before but this class has helped me become a better writer.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is a great class to take if you want to learn how to be a better writer. You get a lot of daily grades so I would do assignments as soon as possible so that you don't get behind.
