Teach or Learn Grammar
With These Videos & Exercises

Would you like to teach grammar but you don't know grammar yourself?

Do you sometimes feel embarrassed because you don't understand grammar?

Do you struggle to understand and apply grammar rules?

We can help you. Our systematic approach teaches you (and your students) grammar through sentence diagramming, and our videos bring the lessons to life with the click of a button.

When you're done with this program, you'll feel more confident in yourself and your writing.

The Get Smart grammar program will work for you whether you're a teacher, a student, a parent, a writer, or just someone who wants to feel more confident with grammar. Get Smart is for fourth graders through adults.

What This Program Will Give You

  • You'll understand how to diagram sentences. Diagramming is a powerful tool for using and understanding language.

  • You'll remember what you learn. The visual nature of the sentence diagrams paired with the puzzle-like aspect of creating them will help you retain what you learn. Since all of the concepts build on each other, you're also continually reviewing easier concepts as you learn more difficult concepts.

  • You'll be engaged. Our short videos (5-15 minutes each) teach you the concepts you need to learn without overwhelming you. Our exercises and tests give you space to practice and apply what you learn in the videos.

  • You'll have the flexibility to move at your own pace. Get Smart is broken into 37 lessons (There are roughly 37 weeks in a school year). Each lesson contains a 5-15 minute video and at least five sentence diagramming exercises. You can do one lesson a week (37 weeks), or you can do one lesson a day (37 days). It's up to you. Just follow the lessons in order, and you can't go wrong.

  • You'll learn all of the important concepts in grammar. You will learn about the parts of speech, sentence types, verb types, independent and dependent clauses, phrases, and verbals. You will also learn how to diagram everything. Click here to see a detailed chart of the program's scope and sequence.

  • You'll receive instant digital access that never expires. Your login information will be emailed to you within minutes of your purchase, so you can start learning right away. Your account will remain active forever. The videos can be streamed or downloaded, and the written lessons and exercises may also be downloaded. You'll receive blank student lessons to write on as well as instructor answer keys to check work.

  • You'll have the option of ordering softcover books. You will be creating your sentence diagrams with a pencil and paper, not online. (Read about some of the benefits of getting off the computer here, here and here.) The softcover books allow you to complete your sentence diagrams and other work in a beautiful bound book. This means you won't have to deal with printing out all of the lessons, and you will have an easy way to reference your work in the future if you ever need to revisit the material. The student workbooks are 285 pages, and the instructor book is 335 pages.

  • You'll have our support. Fell free to send us any questions that may come up as you move through the program. We're here to help.

  • It's guaranteed. Thousands of people with differing backgrounds have had success with the Get Smart grammar program. We're so sure that it will help you that we offer an unconditional, no-questions-asked, 30-day, money-back guarantee.

  • How long will I have access to the program? Forever! You'll receive access to all of the digital content minutes after your purchase, and your access never expires.
  • How long does it take to go through the Get Smart program? There are 37 lessons, and there are roughly 37 weeks in a school year, so it's pretty easy to go through one lesson a week. People going at that pace can expect to spend anywhere from 20 to 60 minutes a week on the course. This amount of time can vary depending on your current level of knowledge and the complexity of the lesson that you're on. However, you can move at any pace you'd like. Some people go through the whole course in just a few weeks.
  • Are the videos available on DVD? I don't have a very good Internet connection, and I'm concerned that I won't be able to use the videos. The videos are not available as DVDs, but they are all downloadable with your access. That means you can download them in non-peak times and play them back whenever you'd like without any playback issues. Also, know that you don't need to watch the videos. Each video accompanies a written lesson. You can easily go through the program using just the written lessons if you'd like.
  • What's the difference between the school-based and home-based programs? The programs contain the exact same content, but the school-based version also includes a username and password for students. This allows them to view only the student material. The difference in price also accounts for the way we license the program to teachers. After a teacher purchases Get Smart, it is hers to use for the duration of her career. There are no license renewal fees.
  • Can students complete and save their work online? Nope. We know that things are digital and high-tech these days, but this is one area where you and your students get to experience the benefits of working on actual paper. Gasp! And there are benefits to this.
  • How does the content in the softcover books compare to what's included in the digital access? The digital access gives you access to everything digitally. That means you get online access to all of the downloadable videos, teacher lessons, student lesson, and quizzes. You can print all of the lessons and quizzes out if you'd like. You can also complete the exercises on loose-leaf paper if you don't want to print everything out. The softcover instructor book (335 pages) and softcover student book (285 pages) are simply printed and bound versions of the printable lessons. Since students will be completing the exercises in the lessons on paper, some people prefer to order the softcover books rather than to print everything out and try to keep it all organized.

Thanks for taking the time to learn more about the Get Smart Grammar Program. I hope you join us!

Elizabeth O'Brien

Hello! I'm Elizabeth O'Brien, and my goal is to get you jazzed about grammar.

My kids, who were not looking forward to this at all, went nuts after watching the first video. They loved your energy, and consequently they didn't miss a single lesson even though I never reminded them to do anything. 

- Catherine, Homeschool Mom

I have been homeschooling for six years and haven't found a program that is so easy and effective. 

- Holly, Homeschool Mom

I had considered buying your product for several years until I finally gave in. I am glad I did. I find Get Smart to be an accessible program that needs no tweaking. It was well worth the money.

- Andrew

My kids were struggling to learn grammar until we got Get Smart. Elizabeth does an awesome job of starting small and building into it. As a mom of more than four kids, I love the ease of hitting play and us all watching Elizabeth teach these concepts.

- Kim B., Homeschooling Mom

Thank you for making a stress-free way to learn grammar.

Kim, Homeschool Mom

My students are fighting over who gets to diagram the sentence on the board when they walk into the classroom. It is a joy to see. 

- Tracy, Classroom Teacher

Thank you for making this program! My grammar-hating son, age 13, is finally mastering grammar after years of using other homeschool programs that did nothing to make him truly understand grammar!! Get Smart is exceptional and makes students successful in this realm! Thank you again! 

- Tammy, Homeschool Mom

We got your videos, and my daughter is no longer stressed.

Rick, Parent

I have to tell you how much I love your product [Get Smart]. I have struggled with understanding grammar my whole life, and I felt like I was stupid because I could not memorize the rules. 

I was seriously leaning towards walking away from my dream job as a college professor because of my embarrassment and fear of getting caught as being a fraud! Thank God for you! I have confidence, and I actually love grammar now. Thank you for everything!

- C., College Professor

Thanks so much for creating this program! The explanations are delightfully clear and concise and your enthusiasm is contagious!  We are honestly ENJOYING grammar! Yay! 

- Pam, Homeschooler

My family is very happy with your Get Smart program. I hated grammar as a kid, and I wish I had had a teacher like you! I'm hoping my kids will have a better experience than I did, and with your program, I am confident that they will.

- Valerie, Homeschool Mom

After talking to several other teachers, I do believe my students are now the grammar gods at our school. These freshmen couldn't tell me the difference between a noun and a verb when the semester started, and now they are feeling so accomplished! Thank you for that!

- Meredith, Classroom Teacher
