    When writing an essay I would say two spaces after the period and one space after the comma.

    "Is this correct".
    No that is not correct. Usually the period is inside the quotations. The only exception is when the ending unit is either a single letter or a number, then the period would be outside the quotes. example:

    My favorite number is "8".
    My favorite letter is "D".
