Cozy Grammar was designed for both families and groups exploring language and writing together
How Groups and Co-ops Use Cozy Grammar
From the beginning, Marie hoped that Cozy Grammar would be used by both families and groups who wanted the study of language to come alive by taking it outside of the classroom.
Over the years, we’ve found groups using Cozy Grammar with great success in the following ways:
Our courses are comprehensive enough that you could make them the basis of your entire language arts program, but it’s equally possible to use the videos or the study notes alone to supplement your other writing activities.
Whichever way you choose to use them, we are confident they will help you and your students open new doors with their writing, their creativity, and their confidence.
A Virtual Tea with Thomas
We’re also happy to offer every group a free Q&A session with Thomas each year. These sessions of up to 60 minutes can be a particularly exciting way for students to prepare and ask questions about writing and language.
As a student in one of our groups recently told us, “It was like meeting a movie star! Thomas even answered my question about sentences.”
In addition, groups receive the same priority email access to Thomas that all of our independent students and families receive:
- Whenever you have a question about grammar, punctuation, or writing for which you can’t seem to find an answer in the study notes, you can use the priority access form in your account to send it in.
- As soon as he can, Thomas will answer your question directly. In most cases, he is able to respond within two working days.
- If your question is one that others might be interested in, Thomas will also make a personalized video answering it.
- These videos then become part of the Ask Cozy Grammar Library, to which you and all of your students will have access.
How Our Group Pricing Works
We offer access in 1-year intervals to groups and co-ops. As with our family pricing, you are invited to pay from the heart.
First, read our guidelines on paying from the heart. You'll find them summarized in the drop-down box below.
Second, take a look at our suggested group pricing as well as our minimum requested group pricing for the size of your group.
Third, listen with the other members of your group to what price feels best to everyone's hearts.

From Our Heart to Yours and Back Again
For more than twenty years, Cozy Grammar's commitment has been to help students and families around the world open the doors to more powerful language and deeper creativity.
Part of this process includes helping our students learn to trust their own ears and hearts.
That's why we've decided to switch to "Pay From the Heart" pricing.
What this means is that you listen to your heart and pay the amount for one year of access to Cozy Grammar that honestly feels right to you.
But don't worry! Just as we do in our courses, we'll guide you step by step through the process.
We want you to be thrilled to be connected to Cozy Grammar, both for what you receive from us and for how you help us to keep offering what we offer.
How It Works
In an ideal world, we would give away Cozy Grammar's curriculum for free to anyone who would wish to use it.
But as Marie and Thomas say again and again, the foundation of good writing, like good living, is honesty. Running Cozy Grammar takes money, time, and expertise, not to mention the regular assistance of skilled website developers!
So here are three numbers for you to consider for one year of access to Cozy Grammar.
Our suggested price for one year of access, $144 USD, reflects what allows us to sustain our business. For people who can pay this amount, we're honored to receive their support in doing what we love to do.
However, for those for whom this price is too much of a stretch, our minimum requested price is $64 USD. Since all of our hearts are involved, the amount has to feel good to our hearts too. When we listened, anything below $64 USD simply didn't feel right to us, and we wanted to be honest about that with you.
Finally, for those whose situations allow them to help support others, we recommend our supporter price of $224 USD. People who can pay this amount help us greatly in making Cozy Grammar as widely available as possible.
Our International and "Food or Shelter" Exceptions
However, if you feel that Cozy Grammar would offer something essential to you or your family but live in an economy with an unfavorable exchange rate or are otherwise in a financial situation where spending $64 USD for one year of access would make it difficult to afford food or to keep a roof over your head, we invite you wholeheartedly to choose an amount lower than our minimum. We are committed to helping you learn even if you find yourself in such a situation.
But if this is not the case for you, we ask you to pay our minimum of $64 USD, we invite you to pay our sustainable price of $144 USD, and we welcome you to pay our supporter price of $224 USD, which helps us enormously in offering this possibility in the first place.
What Other Courses Charge
As Marie and Thomas also emphasize, context is essential, in language and in life.
We've been around a long time and have researched over the years what other curriculum providers charge for comparable groups of courses. Their rates range anywhere from $100 to more than $1500 USD a year.
We really want to encourage you, however, to do something that is increasingly overlooked in the current world: take a moment to pause and listen deeply to what feels right to you. Your amount may or may not fall somewhere in this range. All that matters is that the amount truly feels right to you.
These numbers are simply to give a little more context for your listening.
We Will Trust Your Decision
It may feel unusual to pay in this way, but then again, it may also feel unusual to enjoy studying grammar, or to explore it outside the classroom, while watching Discovery Passage for whales, strolling through the woods, or sipping a cup of tea.
Please know that whatever price honestly feels right to you will be fine with us. As long as you've taken the time to listen deeply, we will trust what you say.
One more important note. You don't have to email us to explain your number or to say you wish you could pay more but this is all you can do right now. We know how life can go. It feels right to our hearts to offer this pricing and we will trust you to trust your own heart in responding.
How To Read Our Pricing Chart
Our regular 1-year individual and family subscription includes a total of 5 accounts: 1 primary account and up to 4 sub-accounts.
Our group pricing chart thus goes up by groups of four additional sub-accounts. All group accounts also include 1 primary account.
All group sales also include one live 60-minute Q&A with Thomas each year and priority email access to Thomas.
We include a basic suggested price column in the chart for comparison. Those prices simply reflect our suggested individual and family price multiplied by 2, 3, 4, and so on, depending on the size of the group.
Unless your group meets our international and "food or shelter" exceptions, we suggest that you use the remaining two columns to guide your deliberations.
