I have the ability to transform complex matter into a simple and easily digestible form. This is my strong point. At the same time, you can rest assured that my work will meet the most stringent writing standards. Please see my test scores.

My writing is clean and crisp, and makes for an easy read and complete comprehension.

However, I am not a grammar purist by default.
