Editing and proofreading your essay comes at the end of the essay process. Many people find it easy and helpful to have someone else take a look at their essay in order to edit and proofread it. But in essay writing, you should learn how to edit and proofread your essay on your own.

It is important to know what is involved in these processes before moving on to techniques, as some people can’t tell between Revising, Editing, and Proofreading.

All three processes are different regarding what changes in the essay they target. Reviewing is the process where you concentrate on the macro aspects of the essay, which is concerned with the structure of the essay and the organization of the essay. During reviewing you look whether the reasoning is optimal and the paragraphs are uniform, each covering different ideas or points.

The editing process concentrates on the health of the sentences that make up the whole paragraphs. Focusing on the essay you look for the structure of the sentences (ensuring there is a variety of sentence structure) and make sure the right terminology and word choice are adopted. Here, you can also check if the required formal and impersonal tone and style are being followed. The passive sentences are also removed or tweaked to allow for an active voice.
