Price Change for Grading Service Is Now in Effect

As of January 1, 2014, the price for grading essays is now $10.00 per double-spaced 12-point font page or partial page.

In order to be able to afford to continue this service, this price increase was necessary. Lately, I've been spending up to four hours to earn $10-15. As I want to be able to sustain the time investment of providing this service for families who have found my grading and commentary helpful for their students, I had to raise my prices. 

I'm happy to grade essays and love helping homeschooling families with this essay grading service. I not only grade language usage, including spelling, grammar, and punctuation, but I also comment extensively on the content of the piece of writing as well. Offering encouragement for effective writing as well as suggestions for improvement is the hallmark of my commentary to student writers. In providing such extensive written feedback in both usage and content, I often spend at least an hour grading each page of a writing assignment. Thus, my pricing needs to reflect the time and effort I invest in evaluating each student's writing.

Happy New Year, and I hope to be hearing from you all soon as we start school following the holidays.
