Each new Essay Rock Star short course by Fortuigence trains middle and high school students in a different essay form — a personal statement, a persuasive essay, an expository essay, and a textual analysis essay. This is done via a five step writing process that breaks down essay composition into smaller manageable pieces to build skills and confidence easily.
Fortuigence is an online school that offers self-paced courses with professionally trained teachers available to review student work and give individualized feedback within 24 business hours after submission. This allows their clients, primarily students in homeschooling families, to experience the benefit of moving through their courses on their own schedule while still working directly with an experienced teacher. Fortuigence’s current paid online courses serve middle and high school students.
The primary mission of Fortuigence is to arm teens with the skills they need for success beyond high school. Therefore, their first academic offering is the Essay Rock Star Non-Fiction Writing Program for Teens, as their research identified writing skills a major area of need for adolescents in the U.S. For more information on the various courses in the program, visit http://www.fortuigence.com/Fortuigence/Courses/index.cfm.
