Proofreading Tips

  • If you've just finished writing the text you'll probably need time to start proofreading your work.  If it's still familiar to you there's a chance you'll miss a few errors. Take a break before proofreading. 
  • You can use apps like Grammarly to help with proofreading the document. 
  • Find a quiet place to work and proofread your document without distractions.
  • You can work from a printout and not a computer screen. 
  • Read out loud. 
  • Read it backwards to focus on spelling. 
  • Have others read it. 
  • Read one sentence and paragraph at a time. 
  • Reread your changes.
