Hey, there! My name is Ryan. I was a theatre major in college, and have worked as a playwright, editor, and dramaturg in the Southern California area for the last ten years.

I am a big fan of language and like passing that love on to others.

I work in a very conversational way, engaging the useful parts of a subject, so that the student can retain and use what they learn for life, instead of merely grasping facts long enough to pass a test and then forgetting they were ever there.

Since I have a decade of experience communicating through the written word, I know how important it is to be able to write not only clearly, but creatively. While I stress the technical aspects of writing (grammar; basic construction), I also know how important it is for the student to discover their voice, so whether they are writing an academic paper, a short story, or a college entrance essay, they are fully confident that they are expressing themselves to their fullest.
