Does anyone know any free apps/websites for proof reading? I always proof read my essays but I somehow end up missing something 😭

grammarly! it checks for spelling mistakes / underlines and gives suggestions. you just add it to your browser and it’s free + safe!
a good tip too is to print out your papers or essays, sometimes it’s easier to read it as you can’t catch mistakes on a screen as easily :)

^agree with that tip, also reading out loud or even better having someone else look over it. I wouldn't necessarily always trust automated apps/programs because they can overlook stuff i.e. if you spell a word correctly but you've used the wrong word or if autocorrect corrected to a different word than you meant.

Definitely reading it out loud, and take a video of yourself too as you do so and rewatch it back and make edits out loud to go back and fix them

copy paste your essay into google translate and have it read it aloud. Sometimes your brain will automatically correct errors if you are reading your own work

and if you're in school then see if there are student mentors/tutors available
