The College-Ready Writing Guy
Better Rhetor President & Co-Founder | Author, College-Ready Writing Essentials | Speaker, Educator, Consultant
Hi & welcome! Yep, that’s me—I’m passionate about the subject of college-readiness & the importance of writing skills specifically. Why? Because study after study shows 1) our children unfortunately are still not entering college adequately prepared; and 2) writing is the key skill necessary for improving student success. The company I co-founded with my wife, BetterRhetor Resources LLC, is dedicated to helping more students succeed in college, no matter their income or background. The online classroom resource I’ve developed, College-Ready Writing Essentials, is steeped in research and experience and reflects our mission to help all students who want a college education achieve their goal.
Before launching BetterRhetor I spent ten years in test development at ACT, Inc., lastly as Director of Writing Assessments. I’ve worked extensively with student writing, gaining a deep understanding of the college-ready writing gap and its causes & have more than thirty years of experience as a writer, editor, and educator. My PhD is in the interdisciplinary field of American Studies, which combines the best of history, social studies, ELA, and so much more, nurturing the critical thinking skills I believe are so essential for emphasizing to future generations now.
