    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Not to take an English heavy class in the summer when you have dislexicia and no way to meat with a writing tutor in person.

    That it is hard to pass a class in the summer when it is in my zone of discomfort.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take it in the summer. if English is not your strong suit.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to students that have very busy schedules! I worked on this class about an hour a week, participating in discussions and doing research. When we had essays to do, we were able to have a lot of creative freedom and Jason was always there for advice. I took this course online, which worked well with my schedule. I would definitely take this class again.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about how to write a concise essay that gets my point across. This is a very important tool, especially as young people head into the professional world. The ability to write concisely was stressed throughout the entire course, and I learned a lot about how to write if I want people to listen to what I have to say.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not wait until the last day to write your essays, especially if you're taking this class online!
