i have an essay to write about a tragic hero
will someone let me email it to them to proof read for any errors, misplaced modifiers, or anything that can be stated better, when im done?
It works better to post it here. Good fences make good neighbors, and email is not much of a fence.
i just don't want there to be any complications with my teacher incase she or another student finds it.
If nobody is available to proofread your work, you can do this yourself. After writing your material, put it aside for a day — at least several hours. (This breaks mental sets you might have that keep you from noticing problems.) Then read it aloud as if you were reading someone else's work. (Reading aloud slows down your reading, so you are less likely to skip over problems.)
If your reading goes smoothly, that is fine. However, wherever you "stumble" in your reading, other persons are likely to have a problem in reading your material. Those "stumbles" indicate areas that need revising.
Once you have made your revisions, repeat the process above. Good papers often require many drafts.
I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
