My name's Peter Ripple. I studied writing at Drake University where I also taught at a writing center for three years. After school, I taught English abroad and then pursued a career in copy writing. Oh, and I'm a rock climber, writer and owner of a farmer's market stand!
I believe that good writing is concise, clear and to the point. The first priority is always the argument or thesis. Everything else--grammar, syntax, vocabulary--comes next.
Apart from that, it's important to know that writing doesn't have to be boring. If a student is struggling, there's bound to be some idea they find intriguing to write about. We'll find it!
Looking forward to hearing from any and all writing, reading and English requests!
