    Ryan C.

    Academic Researcher & Writer, Education Management

    United States

    I have OCD when it comes to researching and academic writing: I am meticulous, effiicient, and diligent. I often edit 3-4 times before I feel that it is "right." It is more than likely due to my educational background: I have a BA in psychology and a MA in Cognitive Studies in Education. I'm also trained in education development. I can assist with curriculum development and lesson writing. I love thinking outside of the box and making connections that others may not even think of. I offer high quality work that is done in a timely fashion. You will not be disappointed!
