At the end of my 6th grade year, my mother faced a dilemma. After trying a few popular writing programs, I still could produce little more than a disorganized summary of a short story. Then, my mother discovered a new course, Dr. Stobaugh's Skills for Literary Analysis. At first, we were overwhelmed by the thought-provoking assignments. However, by the end of the school-year, I could comfortably compose a literary analysis of a Shakespeare play or a Dickens novel. I can confidently say that this is thanks to three factors of equal importance: my mother's persistent guidance, the course's continually challenging assignments, and Dr. Stobaugh's weekly critiques of my papers through the distance learning program. I am forever grateful to Dr. Stobaugh for his vital role in teaching me how to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and deliver a cohesive written assignment.

I wanted to let you know that by God's providence, Evan is going to college this fall! To our great amazement, he was accepted by Princeton, Stanford, Dartmouth, University of Chicago, Washington University at St. Louis, UCLA, UC Berkeley, and waitlisted by Harvard.

Jim, FYI only, my son David retook the SAT in November and got an 800 in the writing section. That works! He only got a pair of 5s on the essay and missed one of the other questions, but the math geniuses said it was an 800.But hey, when a kid gets an 800, even I stop mailing in their essays for evaluation and let them move on to face the college profs. My friend thank you for your help!

I wanted you to be the first to know that I was accepted to Wheaton College, class of 2018!! I am looking forward to (God Willing) attending there. Thank you so much for preparing me academically, so much of my success in applying is due to you and your mentorship. I am deeply appreciative of all that you have done to develop me as a writer, and as an individual. God has been so good!

Claire did very well on her AP Lang test, scoring a 5. (AP Economics was a 4) She also did well on her SAT, scoring an 800 on the verbal, 740 on the math, and 700 on the writing.
