blossomj229275-san, NemuiKitsune-san, Lang 8 seems to be an interesting site Maybe it's good to use it for covering the parts J-Pod doesn't have? NemuiKitsune-san might need to create an account just to interact with other learners there
In any way, hope we can cover the part of teaching and helping enough
Yes, actually I'm practically on my computer all the time to be fairly honest. Though I also manage to stay active (I run cross country and do parkour) and have good grades (I have straight A's and 3 honors and an AP class as a freshman [other two are spanish and P.E]) but I think an IM would work.

If people keep correcting your sentences, you might be trying too complicated sentences and might need to go back to basics a bit? What I call "level appropriate practice" is also very important, taking step-by-step method.
