Ronald Tiekert - Editor

Boca Raton, FL, United States

Content editor, fact checker, copy editor, and proofreader, with a focus on nonfiction, particularly in the educational field.

Overview

I have more than 20 years experience content editing, copy editing, proofreading, and fact-checking K-9 instructional materials. For the past five years I've gained experience content editing, copy editing, and proofreading professional development materials in the educational field.

While my experience began in the pre-digital days of editing double or triple-spaced print manuscript, I've become comfortable editing onscreen, usually with MS-Word. I'm also experienced at using Adobe's PDF markup tools for copy editing and proofreading, and I'm comfortable discussing projects with authors at a distance using Google Docs as part of resolving comments and queries that arise during the development process.

While I'm nowhere near being a graphic artist, I'm proficient enough with MS-Word drawing tools to sketch diagrams and geometric figures as part of developing graphic specs for practice and assessment items in K-9 math texts.

Work experience

Freelance Editor

Ronald Tiekert is self-employed

March, 2009 – Present (almost 8 years)

Since March 2009 I have provided, on a freelance/contract basis, editorial services and other services related to development of mathematics and English language arts instructional and assessment materials in the K to 9 grade range for several companies, including Triumph Learning and William H. Sadlier. During this time I also edited and fact-checked short topical nonfiction articles for a content aggregator, Demand Media. In addition, I have edited professional development (PD) materials for Syfr, a consulting company that focuses on implementing research-based innovation and creativity in learning.

I've become comfortable editing onscreen, usually with MS-Word, although my experience goes back to the pre-digital days of editing double or triple-spaced print manuscript.

Managing editor

New Century Education Corporation

February, 1985 – January, 2009 (almost 24 years)

While at New Century Education I worked in development of both mathematics and English language arts instructional materials, first as a senior editor, then as a managing editor. During this time more than 1400 lessons were developed and released.
