Paper Critiques and Private Conferences

Are you looking for help with your child’s writing but not an entire online class? Perhaps you’ve designed your own English curriculum but feel less confident evaluating your child’s writing. Perhaps your child is already enrolled in a great course that requires papers but doesn’t include writing instruction. Whatever your situation, if you want¬†professional feedback on individual writing assignments, Bandusia Tutorials’ paper critiques and private conferences can fill your needs.

To see examples of papers with feedback, check out the Expository Writing page.

Current Student Discount: If a student currently enrolled in a Bandusia Tutorials class would like help with a writing assignment for a different class (a history class or a science class, for example), that student will receive a 10% discount on paper critiques and conference packages.

Note: Bandusia Tutorials students never need to buy separate critique or conference packages for the papers they write for Bandusia Tutorials classes. Detailed feedback on each paper is included with every course.
