The problem with instant on-line proofreading

Instant on-line proofreading means a computer is going to be your proofreader, not a live editor. You want someone to return document with corrections made, not point out that there's a violation of some kind of rule you don't understand. In addition, your writing has to be pretty good for the computer to be able to see the errors. Plus, as my trials outlined below show, computers make many errors. If English is your second language, or you are really struggling with expressing yourself, then the computer will be confused and you need a live editor.

Free Professional Editing?

The truth is that there are not a lot of professional editors sitting out there waiting to proofread high school, undergraduate, or even graduate essays for free. Proofreading is a skill, so most people offering free proofreading are doing so to attract paid clients. If you find another professional editor who will edit your essay free, let me know. I want to study his/her business model.

500 word submission for free proofreading

1.75 cents per word 24 hour service; $10 minimum; Advanced service is $6.75/page. No hidden charges.
Instant on-line proofreading service

Basic service free.

Registration required; to get instant free on-line proofreading, you need to sign up and then cancel within the 7 day trial period. It's probably best for a student who is writing a lot of papers and is competent, but wants those pesky commas and semicolons checked along with the verb tenses.


none Software based system; this company is trying to develop a better computer proofreading system. In my trial run, it missed a run-on sentence, a sentence fragment, and a verb tense error in the first paragraph. In addition, on-line systems can't read for logic of content.

600 words free

1 cent per check Lots of false positives and flags; it underlines things and then discusses a grammar "rule", but it doesn't fix your writing. The worse you write, the less helpful this will be.


none Highlights things like contractions and then tells you these are not used in formal writing. Highlights homophones and warns you to check for correct usage. Failed to detect the usage of "passed" when "past" would have been correct. Highlighted correct use of "past" as a possible misuse for "passed." Links to Grammarly if you wish more thorough proofreading.
