WriteAtHome and CHA
WriteAtHome.com is an online writing instruction service founded by Brian Wasko, current Director of the Centerville
Brian worked as a high school English teacher in the Chesapeake Public School system from 1988 to 1999. During that
time, he began teaching at CHA (then HSEP) in the afternoons, providing a weekly high school writing course. When
Mr. Wasko transitioned out of a full-time ministry position in 2001, he used his experience with the CHA writing course
to create WriteAtHome -- an innovative service connecting homeschoolers to experienced online writing tutors called
writing coaches. Since then, WriteAtHome has served over 12,000 students around the world.
Because Mr. Wasko's time is limited and he cannot offer writing classes in addition to the literture classes, we recommend students in middle and high school enroll in a WriteAtHome class. Because of Mr. Wasko's association with both programs, WriteAtHome courses are offered at a significant discount.
Which WriteAtHome Course to Take?
We highly recommend enrolling students in an annual course (8-week workshops are also available, please contact Mr. Wasko if you do not want a full-year course). Because WriteAtHome courses are tutorial by design and writing coaches excell at working with students across a wide range of abilities, we suggest enrolling your student at grade level regardless of his or her current writing talent.
