Michele Poff, PhD

Communication Scientist and language expert. Editor, course developer, qualitative and quantitative researcher. Excellently qualified, top quality professional.

My passion for working with language is reflected in: PhD Communication, MA Linguistics, BA English (2 from top 20 universities) and 20+ years of editing. I've examined language use from many paradigms. Not only a scholar and published author, but language use and composition are my actual areas of scholarly expertise. I also offer expertise in designing and conducting original research, primarily within qualitative and humanistic paradigms but also in quantitative design. My strong pedagogical background, a major focus of both graduate programs coupled with 13 years teaching university courses, enables me to develop stellar instructional courses for you, for any learner population.

A Mensa member, offering:

- high quality editing: fast, accurate, meticulous, thorough.
- exceptional course development for any learner population
- original research design and analysis assistance

With my rich background, training, and expertise in language and composition, you would be hard-pressed to find a better editor for your academic and other nonfiction materials. My most regular clients are researchers at Harvard University and political science professors. I also work with many graduate students on their theses and dissertations, and with those of the general public inclined to write quality nonfiction.I rely on ancient (Aristotle) through contemporary research in my editorial recommendations. Your work will be *all you*, only better, stronger, cleaner, tighter, clearer, and more impactful when I've finished with it.

Two pedagogy-focused graduate programs and 13 years teaching in the university classroom (with consistently excellent teaching evaluations) have provided me with a solid background on how to best present information to maximize student comprehension and retention.

I'm well-versed in all social science methodologies and have contributed to the design and analysis of many studies.
