About Ron

I'm certified as an English language teacher to adults and understand how to explain its basics, but I also know when the basics are sound and we can elevate our game. I have a Bachelor's from a top-20 English program and a Master's from a top-10 journalism school.

I've been a writing teacher at a community college and a university for several years. I've taught classes for writers at every level, and worked for years in writing centers with students one at a time. Helping students craft better essays in every aspect--developing the main theme, getting ideas to fit the task, sharpening organization and grammar, proofreading until things are just right--is something I take pride and pleasure in.

I have experience as an editor and writer in tech, law and government, and health sciences; I likewise was in business in sales, marketing, and operations. This means that I understand not only how to write, but how a lot of different subjects work and think, so the writing can be a better fit.

The feedback I offer is thorough and direct. I will ask if you're getting what you need and how you need it, and will adjust to make sure things are working for you--because nothing else really matters.

My professional experience as an editor and writer was based on sound presentation of ideas as well as meticulous grammar and proofreading.

Feel free to contact me with questions about what you're looking for and how (and when) I can help you.
