I HIGHLY recommend Here to Help Learning. Mrs. Mora is a passionate, exceptional writing teacher whose humor will immediately grasp your child's attention. She integrates some basic grammar into the lesson as well. For example, my daughter was learning about nouns, verbs, and adjectives during game time. She also learned how to change "dead words" or overused words to more interesting, descriptive words. Captain Knucklehead explains homework assignments in simple terms and cracks my daughter up. I have seen my daughter's writing improve while using this program and she really likes the curriculum components. The writing process is woven into the lessons for each unit project. There are six major projects per course. Paragraph Writing Level 1 was the perfect fit for my 8-year-old. The picture writing prompts encourage students to get ideas down on paper. The pictures are very interesting and silly at times. I loved hearing my daughter's creative stories. You can always not time the session if children get intimidated using it. Children write at their own level so this program can be easily used with multiple children. She enjoys watching the video lessons which are full of costumed characters. The program is easy-to-use and requires very little teacher or parent prep. You only work twice a week too!

We started using this program with my older daughters this last year after seeing Here to Help Learning at a homeschool convention. My daughters went from not liking writing to it being one of their favorite subjects. Mrs. Mora truly does a great job of engaging the students and making the subject enjoyable. As a result, both of their writing skills have increased dramatically (it's amazing what happens when they actually enjoy what they are doing). My younger son has seen his sisters and now he cannot wait to start this next year. I am very happy we found Here to Help Learning.

We used Here to Help Learning Writing program for my two youngest boys, both of whom have drastically different learning styles. One struggled greatly with reading and writing and was very reluctant to put pen to paper. The other loved writing and wrote prolifically for the joy of it. My boys had the advantage of being in Beth Mora's live classes for a time, and they were thrilled to continue with the online curriculum. What continues to amaze me about Beth Mora's writing curriculum is the ease with which I was able to use one curriculum that reached both of them. If only I had this when I was homeschooling my two older children!
Beth employs a step by step approach which is tremendously helpful for the child who stares at the blank page with no idea where to begin. My reluctant writer appreciated knowing exactly what to expect in each step of the process. However, Beth makes each lesson highly engaging, encouraging and interactive, with hands on activities, so there is always something new to look forward to. Her engaging style helped my "full steam ahead" writer take the time to complete each step of the writing process. At the end of each section within each "Flight", my boys had a creative published work they felt proud of. These finished writing projects are keepers! We still enjoy looking through our Here to Help Learning projects...the Poetry Books they created are my personal favorite. :0

Both of my daughters have been using Here To Help Learning curriculum for 5+ years. Beth's techniques are so easy to teach and so easy for the kids to understand. Her animated videos and teaching keeps the attention of both students and teachers. Both of my daughters love to write. Beth taught them both to be creative and to be proud of their writings. One of my favorite things about her teaching is that she really focuses on "publishing" their work. That can be by just reading it aloud to someone, all the way to actually putting it in book form. The affordability of this program is amazing . Here To Help Learning focuses on the whole family and they make it possible to use the program for all your children without paying a lot.
I can not recommend this program enough. If you are thinking of looking at more programs, DON'T. This program will make your children love to write. Positivity rings through. Thank you Beth for what you've done for our family.

We are former participants in the writing program. Without a doubt it was a painless way to approach writing! We love Mrs. Mora's enthusiasm and her techniques have stayed with my son through his elementary years. I am so glad that so many people will be able to access her program now. We miss Mrs. Mora but we are so glad that we had the years we did because writing is so much easier and fun!

I totally and completely recommend this product. The first year we did this program with our co-op and, though we used lowest level of writing (1st through 3rd) we quickly discovered that every one wrote to their level. In other words my seventh grade girl wrote long, involved stories while my fourth grader's were much shorter. Beth Mora is very entertaining and she makes learning the topics fun and simple. Both my daughter's writing skills have increased dramatically and, even though not marketed as a grammar program per se, she did a great job teaching the general mechanics of writing. It's just enough to keep my girls from being discouraged (as has happened in many other language arts programs).

Far from being just a "talking head" video you can immediately see all the hard work and creativity that went into producing this program. Bravo Beth.

We loved our writing experience with Here to Help Learning's online program! It is a WONDERFUL program! My kids and I loved all of Mrs. Mora's characters and laughed together at Captain Knucklehead all year long!!! It was an awesome year that we will treasure! We have purchased HTHL workbook and DVD set to use next year and we are very excited to dive into writing again with Mrs. Mora!!!! Thank you for all your hard work creating such an exceptional program!

My 11 yr old son's writing experience always ended in tears. After starting HTHL, he never cries, never complains and actually enjoys doing his lessons. He and his little brother even walk around singing the songs. I have several friends using this program and we are so thankful to have found it!

This is probably the best online writing systems for home school families that I have seen. First, it's simple. No home school parent needs a program that is so complicated it takes all summer to understand it and prepare to use it. Also, Parents - you will have a solid writing methodology your children can follow and you will see concrete results. Kids - it's fun and interactive, encouraging and SIMPLE to follow. Instructions are always clear and in small bite size pieces, so you won't get overwhelmed and yet it will provide enough for the "fast-paced" learner who wants to move ahead.

Children who just don't know where to start with their writing can begin with the paragraph writing process -- children who are ready for more can really sink their teeth into "writing a novel" Each part of this writing program has been tested with home school families BEFORE going online - Mrs. Mora's experiences teaching home schoolers (including her own) have been transferred lovingly into this program.

My children still long to be a part of Mrs. Mora's classes, remember their experiences fondly as she was their "favorite and best teacher." It is a blessing she can now reach so many families via this program, providing the knowledge and support to them that we found so valuable during our homeschooling journey.

Bless your children with this program and you will have writers who love not only writing but learning how to write well.

I highly recommend The Here to Help Learning curriculum. I so appreciated its ease of use, creativity (already thought up which is wonderful bc that is not my strength), enthusiastic instruction and affordability. My older daughter loves to write and will herself attribute this to Beth's teaching (her use of metaphors is music to my ears). My youngest daughter's interest in writing improved immensely using this curriculum. At the end of the school year, I not only felt like I had completed something, but I had precious keepsakes as well. I cannot recommend this curriculum enough.
