We have found Kyra’s WriteShop classes to be very beneficial to our homeschool.  My daughter has developed organizational skills that she would never had the opportunity to develop otherwise.  Also, her self-confidence in writing has “gone through the roof.”  Kyra has a way of encouraging her while correcting her at the same time that has built her confidence tremendously.  Thank you Dwight and Kyra for all your hard work and offering these classes to the homeschool community.  It is a huge blessing.

My son was nervous about taking the Introduction to Writing class.  He lacked confidence in himself and his writing skills.  He was afraid that he would not do well in class.  However, most of his “rough drafts” compositions have become his “final drafts” and I can see the confidence he has gained.  Thank you Kyra for your encouragement and sweet demeanor.

We have very much benefited from Mrs. Gartrell’s Intermediate Writing I class. Everything is so organized it’s easy to see what is due and when, what the class will cover and skill that will be taught.  I would highly recommend her classes.

My son has greatly benefited from the past 2 years in these classes, and my daughter who studied with Mrs. Gartrell for 4 years before attending college has found her college English classes to be very easy.  Her strong writing ability and understanding of grammar have benefited her in almost every class she has taken.  We are so thankful we made the investment in her future to put her in Mrs. Gartrell’s classes.

Thank you for your kindness and patience while teaching my boys.  Sometimes there was confusion about an assignment or forgetfulness in turning things in (on their part), but you were always gracious and understanding and worked with them to see that their assignments were handed in in a timely manner.

We have been extremely pleased with the writing classes offered by Mrs. Kyra Gartrell.  Our son has been enrolled in these classes since 6th grade.  As we entered this program, he was a hesitant writer with a lack of motivation, which always posed a challenge during our homeschool days.  However, as he is now approaching 9th grade, we are pleased to know he is well beyond prepared for completing his high school English requirements.  His love for writing has blossomed so much, that not only is English his favorite school subject, but he is seeing the benefits of writing in pursuing a career in business.  He is excited about recently adding a blog to his business website as well.  We can’t say enough about this program. Not only do the classes teach the necessary components for writing, but they also provide opportunities to teach time management and study skills.  The workload can be intense at times, requiring time and effort, but the rewards are so worth it! Thank you, Mrs. Kyra, for your dedication to teach students, and instill in them the skills needed for excellent writing! We are grateful, and we are sure our son will be thanking you for a lifetime!

Thank you Mrs. Kyra for helping me to see books from more than just words. Now every book read and every commercial seen is dissected using the techniques you taught. We am also happy to have the knowledge and understanding on how to properly and effectively write essays We feel so much more confident being able to articulate [our ideas] on paper and through speeches.
