Many grammar books teach a simple idea, then give a quiz on a difficult part of the concept they have not taught. Example: They say that possessives are apostrophe s or s apostrophe. Not so simple.
How do you make the plural possessive of Dickens? as in "Let's go to the D ________________ house.
Write your answer, then look at the correct answer and explanation at the bottom of this announcement.

Marcielle is a private coach in the following:

and how to pay.

I am offering two online classes in the Winter 2009.
Both have a $10 materials fee. I provide all handouts for every class. Both have been expanded to eight weeks as requested by my students.

Homonyms. Business Letters, Emails, Memos, and Protocol.
Word Roots (Latin, etc.). Comma Review. Commas in a paragraph.
Lie/Lay. Sit/Set. Would/Should.

Writing for Professionals
Have you ever made a blunder in communicating on paper that you wish you could take back? Your problems are solved in this class. We review sentence, paragraph, and essay structure. We also discuss the main venues for business communication which are letters, memos, inter-office communications, and emails. Also included are the proper way to deal with uncooperative people (some of whom refuse to pay us what is owed) and how to send written communication that will change their minds. Many students gave up on lost monies owed them, but after this lesson, several of them thanked me, because the person paid what they had long owed. Hey, I should ask for a cut!
The correct answer is Let's go to the Dickenses' house. First, you make it plural (so you need to know how to pluralize proper nouns), and then you think about making it possessive. The rules are a bit complicated.
I teach these concepts in two separate sections of a two-hour lesson.
