About The Denim Beret
I did well in English 1121 at [local college], and that course really helped me appreciate your English expertise; there were many situations when your advice for my writing was either the same as the professor's or put me in a perfect place to learn what he had to say! --Emily / Minneapolis, MN
Although I value both modern and classical approaches and would use both if I could, I offer a writing program based primarily on modern principles of writing. Designed for students ages 12 and up, The Denim Beret writing program is a hybrid model that combines skill-based lessons with the fluid, creative process typical of professional writers. In addition, it combines independent study with the personal guidance of private tutoring. If a structured program is not your preference, I also offer a mentoring option that teaches writing through application and evaluation. Also, this year I am offering three live courses in grammar, writing, and literature. Please explore my website to learn more, and feel free to email me with any questions through my Contact Me page.
