Ronald Kos, PhD

Professional, insightful, compassionate, and efficient

I’m an educator with 25 years of experience in K–12 and university settings, including both face-to-face and online courses. I’ve mentored numerous graduate students through the process of developing, implementing, and writing their research projects, and I’ve edited 30+ theses, dissertations, and research articles to help authors communicate their ideas clearly and to conform to APA style. I've mastered the art of writing for a variety of audiences, having published in both scholarly and professional journals. These experiences, together with my attention to detail, compassionate nature, and passion for teaching, make me a great choice as an editor, tutor, or coach.
