Take a Second Look Because There are NO Second Chances to Make a First Impression.

My name is Julie and I am a proofreading tutor in Katy. Why is proofreading important? Because, this practice allows you to catch errors in papers and correct them before your teacher sees them and deducts points. One suggestion for effective proofreading, is to never examine your own work. Take the time to begin your writing early, so that you can show a first draft to someone you trust. That person will mark errors in your paper and hand it back to you in time for you to correct the errors and print out a fresh copy. Often, teachers are willing to proofread papers and offer suggestions for their students. (It never hurts to ask.) In sum, proofreading can help students improve their paper scores.
