How does the School Supplement program work?
Once enrolled you will receive a 4-week packet of worksheets and study material at your home via US Mail. Each worksheet will be marked with the from-date and to-date of the week it needs to be completed by. You do not have to mail the material back to School Supplement. Every other month (i.e. once every 2 months) beginning with the second month of the program you will receive a test which will be used to measure the progress of your child. It is optional to mail/fax/email the test back to School Supplement.
There is no contract for the program! Every time you make a payment you will receive a 4-week payment.

Why do we stamp the date on every Worksheet?
The School Supplement program is designed as a complete program that would fill the gaps in the formal school education. To achieve this goal the student needs to work on a regular basis and the date works as a guide to make sure that the student is on track to finish the program.

Since each assignment is reviewed by a teacher, students receive one-on-one attention rather than a one size fits all approach.
The Advanced Writing Program with Teacher Feedback can challenge students to keep their writing skills sharp during school breaks or it can be used to more specifically assist them with their school writing homework. So how does it work? Each month a 4-week writing assignment will be provided online with samples and instructions on what to write and how to write the best possible essay. This methodical approach to writing makes it easier for students to learn and understand the writing process. Writing assignments will cover a variety of topics and will challenge students to practice different types of writing, including argumentative, persuasive, informative, and many more. Being presented with a different topic each week will also help students overcome writerís block. The Advanced Writing Program with Teacher Feedback gives students a well-rounded grasp of the different types of writing that they will need to know for the future of their academic career.
Students can also use this program for more specific assistance by replacing the assigned writing assignment with their homework writing assignments from school (upto one page per essay). This is a wonderful option for students with a heavy workload as it will allow them to continue to work towards their short and long term writing goals without adding to their workload. Once your child has completed the assignment, simply submit it through email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The writing assignment can be sent as an attached file, typed in the body of the email, emailed from Google drive, or however is most convenient for your child and receive a teacher reviewed feedback with an overall grade/score. After making the necessary corrections, students can resubmit the assignment for a final review. A total of up to four submissions for essay review can be made for each monthly payment.
The Advanced Writing Program with Teacher Feedback will give students the skills they need to be more confident writing for the SAT and ACT, as well as college applications and any future assignments. Being a proficient writer is essential to being successful in school and a good foundation in writing will prepare students for success in middle school, high school, and college.
