I never thought I would learn so much about writing in one year! I am now filled with the love of writing! I also thought that the way that the writing class is organized makes this class super interesting. I think that it is great that the students can share their papers with each other in class so that they can give feedback and help each other to write better. I think that the writing curriculum is excellent and it and the course are easy to understand, use and enjoy.

We had a very positive experience with this class! My daughter has enjoyed this class immensely, which is the most important benefit in her taking the class. She has gained so much confidence and enjoyment in her writing skills, and it has helped so much for her to have input from peers and her teacher. I think she enjoyed the curriculum, and the way the teacher planned activities. Her teacher was always so encouraging and offered suggestions in a kind and helpful way. My daughter also enjoyed being a part of a community and getting to know the other students.

Mrs. Roy’s enthusiasm for teaching and encouraging her students to blossom in their writing skills is a treasure. This course has encouraged my child to practice various forms of writing using his God given creativity and inspiration as the springboard. Her sweet patience and gentle intentional questioning develops peaceful growth in the struggle of overcoming writers block. Love for her students and their writing success is evident in their response and the fruits of their labor.

RIR has helped my son look more in depth at literature and Mrs. Roy is encouraging and fun. Writing is not my son’s favorite subject, but CC2 has challenged him in writing a research paper, poetry and now working on a fiction story. With Mrs. Roy’s guidance, my son has managed to gain strength in his writing skills. She is gracious with him and gentle prods him along.

I loved writing our fantastical short story. I liked how we would go over problems in class! It definitely helped if you couldn’t figure out the problem without help. I also liked how we would read our writings to the rest of the class

“Mrs. Roy was able to teach my son how to improve his writing style and build his confidence as a story teller. We loved her teaching style, and constant encouragement to persevere in his writing. She works incredibly with kids of all ages & is passionate about teaching.”

“Our daughter specifically learned valuable skills in writing her first research paper, including how to identify credible sources and proper citation. She also had the opportunity to experiment in writing fantasy for the first time, which was a brand new genre for her.”
