What makes this course better for you than other courses:

2. This course is one of the best values on Udemy where quality meets value. Since prices have risen, this course offers a great deal for the price you are paying compared to competitor courses without compromising on the course or content quality. The reviews speak for themselves.
3. Compassionate teacher who cares about your success--I have struggled in my own writing, and I have learned through experience what works and what doesn't. I present personal anecdotes, stories, tricks, and experiences to help you benefit from my experience without the struggle.

the instructor is not really talking to the audience but just reading off facts. Not a very interesting course.
I did get lost among the strategies and techniques. An introductory slide showing the strategy topic and techniques therein might help if others experienced the same problem. I would have appreciated a few more "let's fix this problem with this sentence / paragraph / document" together samples. Instructor was great.
As a beginner, I found this course enlightening, practical and motivational. I like the idea of being able to go back and refer to earlier strategies. Generally, super-helpful!
The course was helpful, especially for beginners. It helps a person build some structure in their writing. Overall, I do think some of the methods or tips in the course will be nice to have and utilize in my future writings.
So far, it has been a review of what I learned in high school. I really expected more "in depth" information. The instructor is not clear in her speech and runs her sentences together. I tried to follow the text, but it had so many mistakes that I finally gave it up.
This course is not for all level student. The course should contain a video for grammar and punctuation usage. So, the beginner/intermediate student could refresh their memory.
thanks for your course, my style has improved. I see better how to structure my stories, thank you (x3)! I recommend this course to anyone who wants to improve their style. 10/10 (La France) :) She knows what she says,
This is my second course with Rachel, she is a great instructor. I always tend to learn more with her writing course then with some others. The only thing that distracted me was her apparent reading the note verbatim from her script. Everything else was just fantastic.
It has been pointed out that my writing needed to be improved. I have the desire to be more impactful in my writing as well as come across more professional.
This course covers several common problems both beginning and more experienced writers face. The instructor also offers solutions to those problems. However, it's hard to become immersed with the course; the instructor often speaks too fast for you to be able to follow, and the course also often feels too scripted.
This course is awesome and I advise any new applicants to take time and really go through the course as it provide you with alot of knowledge.
Great Course. Topics delivered in bite-size lessons that progressively built on each other. Handouts to support lectures.
At this point she is helping me to build a better more simple writing style that will be cleaner as I present my writings to clients.
Teacher explains the strategy more concrete and easy to understand the method of basic writing style. Thank
Presenter is reading more than speaking and speaks very fast. So far the suggestions have been very basic and should be common sense for most anyone who writes or wants to write.
