Free Grammar Check
for Your English Stories

"Pay it Forward" and Help Others as You Learn!

When I first started providing the free grammar check section in 2008 I wanted to provide personalized coaching and services to as many people as I could.  I created this section of the website because I knew many people were struggling with with writing and wanted to learn from their mistakes.

Dear Visitor,

This section is temporarily not accepting submissions or questions. It will accept questions in the future.

Thank you for your patience. :)

Please feel free to look at the questions below as you could learn something new and possibly find the answer to your question.

What I didn't realize was that soon I would be visited by over 2000 students per day and many of them would be looking for this service.

After a year of providing grammar checks for visitors I had to stop, because the demand was too high.  

If you are looking for help checking your grammar and don't have access to a tutor or teacher I highly recommend that you try grammarly's new grammar checker tool.  

This easy to use tool allows you to correct your grammar, improve your style and gain confidence while writing English.

Free & Quick Proofreading from Grammarly!

"Grammar Checker

Grammarly’s online grammar checker is the most accurate tool for grammar correction on the market.

Also, because the grammar checker is thorough, customizable, and educational, it is an outstanding tool for anyone who writes and wants to improve his or her writing

— students, bloggers, writers, and professionals."

Use these suggestions to improve your proofreading.

  • Take a break.  Go for a walk or so something else that gets you away from your computer or work.  Give yourself some time after writing before you start proofreading.  This will allow you to forget about your work and return to it with fresh eyes.
  • Give yourself enough time.  Many mistakes are made because we are going to quickly   We type quickly, read it quickly and then publish it quickly.  
  • Read your writing slowly and aloud to help highlight errors.  When you read your writing aloud you will hear your mistakes more.  When we read in our heads we miss mistakes more easily.
  • Get someone else to read your writing for you.  As they did not create the piece of writing it will be much easier for the to notice your mistakes.
