Ashan R. Hampton
Starting in 2011—as a college English instructor and solopreneur—I helped thousands of students, academics and busy professionals hone their writing skills through my company, Cornerstone Communications. On October 1, 2020, I established a new business container for my online classes and books called Onyx Online Education & Training.
My online classes receive favorable reviews. The sales of my grammar, writing and proofreading books are increasing. My YouTube channel continues to be a go-to resource for fellow educators and students of all ages who need to quickly improve their writing skills or to pass a test. My articles are widely read and quoted by other authors. These are just a few ways that people acknowledge my expertise as an educator, editor, and writer.
Do you need to improve your writing skills to impress a potential employer or to land a promotion? Are you a homeschooler looking for effective English language resources? Are you returning to graduate school and need detailed instruction on how to write research papers and proposals? Would your employees benefit from affordable online training on grammar, proofreading and presentation skills?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, congratulations. You are ready to work with me!
My best clients are graduate students, workplace professionals, teachers, parents, homeschoolers, K-12 and college students who understand the value of maximizing their writing skills for personal and professional success.
For individuals and groups, I offer self-paced, online classes that are ready for enrollment and available 24/7. No waiting. You also receive a certificate of completion for any online class you take, which can really boost your résumé.
Thanks for considering my products and services. Happy learning!
