How to proofread your own work

Here are 10 easy ways to proofread your own work.

These are:

  1. Wait a few days before proofreading your work.
  2. Avoid distractions.
  3. Read your work out loud to someone.
  4. Double check spellings of academic, scientific and technical terms.
  5. Proofread all parts of your work.
  6. Print out a hard copy of your work.
  7. Check your work for overused words.
  8. Proofread small chunks of text at a time.
  9. Use a spell checker.
  10. Proofread your work slowly.

The proofreading was very thorough and comments were clear and helpful. I was impressed at the speed my work was read and returned to me. I feel that the service really helped improve the quality of my work and would definitely recommend it to others.
