  • GRAMMAR IS IMPORTANT
  • SUBJECT-VERB AGREEMENT: Make sure the subject and the verb agree with one another and make sense. TIP: If you don’t see an error the first time you read a sentence, try crossing out prepositional phrases and checking for subject-verb agreement.
  • VERB TENSE: Check if the verb/action is in the correct tense (past/present/future). Ex: becoming vs became
  • PRONOUNS: Any pronoun that follows a preposition must be an object pronoun. Important: Between you and me, NOT Between you and I
  • PARALLELISM:n any given list, each item should be in the exact same format. Either noun, noun, noun, verb, verb, verb, ect.
  • CLAUSES: Whenever you encounter a parenthetical clause (a clause set off by commas that can be removed without affecting the fundamental meaning of the sentence), cross it out and check subject-verb agreement
  • COMPARISON: Compare things to things and people to people. Ex: At the age of twenty-four, playwright Thornton Wilder was balding and bespectacled, and his clothes were like a much older man (like those of a much older man).
