How It Works
The Lantern English Co. offers online writing classes and English programs for students across the globe. Students and teachers do not meet face-to-face in a classroom setting, but communicate instead via email or Skype.
In order to participate, every student of The Lantern English Co. must have an email address, whether their own or their parents'.
8 Week Classes
Lessons and assignments are sent via doc. or PDF in weekly emails. Students complete the work and return the homework file(s) to the teacher by the given due date. Corrections, comments, and a weekly grade are provided via a skill-appropriate rubric. Some courses have final projects or tests.
For our quarterly classes, students should expect to receive their weekly assignments on the same day around the same time each week, but they do not need to worry about logging in for a specific class or discussion time. Whenever they are able to retrieve the assignment from their email is fine, as long as the work is completed and returned by the due date. This makes The Lantern English Co. incredibly flexible for students and their families.
All eight-week writing classes cost $60 per student.
The Lantern English Co. offers a year-long English program for grades 6th - 12th, providing instruction in literature, vocabulary, grammar, and writing. The English program works similiar to our quarterly classes, in that students receive their lessons and assignments via email on the same day each week. Students complete the work and return the files to the teacher by the given date. Corrections, comments, and a weekly grade are provided via a skill-appropriate rubric.
English students enroll during our first quarter enrollment period, but stay with the same teacher for the entirety of the school year.
Our English program costs $330 per year (a total of 32 weeks).
Occasional Skype sessions or Facebook calls are available for all current students when additional help or feedback is needed. We are happy to schedule a time to speak with the student over Skype or Facebook Messenger. When more one-on-one time is needed, we are also happy to develop a live class to meet your needs!
Thirty-minute (30) calls are $30.00 each.
English students (see above) may request a call at any time throughout the year at a discounted rate of $20 per half hour.
