The WriteAtHome Approach: How to Effectively Coach Young Writers


Four years into his career as a public high school English teacher, Brian Wasko was asked to teach a weekly after school writing class to homeschoolers in his Virginia Beach community. The approach and curriculum he developed over the next several years evolved into, a popular and effective online program helping homeschoolers develop skill in writing. WriteAtHome has served thousands of young writers since it started in 2001.

In 2016, Brian launched Wasko Lit, offering real-time online literature courses focusing on the Great Books of Western civilization. Brian teaches these classes himself, relying on a curriculum he's developed over twenty-plus years.

Brian and his family live in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Brian speaks regularly in a variety of venues, including secular and Christian homeschool conventions, public and charter schools, church and community events.
