English Portfolio.. can someone proofread? - January 12th 2010, 02:54 PM

So every semester for English we have to compile a portfolio of past works and then four other reflections that we have to write over the course of a few weeks. Which, of course, 99.9% of people, including myself, start in the last few days before it's due. (The real hardcore people pull an all-nighter the day before it's due.) Anyways, it's due tomorrow, and I have most of it done. I was wondering if anyone would be willing to read the pieces I wrote and point out errors or otherwise tell me I should change?

I also don't mean to be rude, but I'm in AP English so I'd prefer someone who's pretty good at proofreading and advising. Though I appreciate the sentiment if you aren't!

Just reply back here and I'll send one of the essays to you. By the time I finish, I'll have...

- A cover letter describing how various reading and writing tasks have helped me to understand the works of challenging authors.
- A reflection on eight curriculum pieces I wrote (this one I mainly need a check on grammatical errors)
- A reflection on how I achieved my first and second quarter writing goals (or how I didn't) and then 2+ goals for third quarter.
- A self-evaluation of my overall portfolio (mainly needing grammatical revision & such)

Thank you guys so much!

when you love and laugh abundantly you live a beautiful life.

I'll happily do a little editing for you Becca. All I'll probably have time for tonight is technical spelling/grammar/punctuation stuff, that's easy enough to do, but it sounds like that's mostly what you're looking for anyway.

The atoms that make up you and me were born in the hearts of suns many times greater than ours, and in time our atoms will once again reside amongst the stars. Life is but an idle dalliance of the cosmos, frail, and soon forgotten. We have been set adrift in an ocean whose tides we are only beginning to comprehend and with that maturity has come the realization that we are, at least for now, alone. In that loneliness, it falls to us to shine as brightly as the stars from which we came.

I'll gladly proofread if you need someone else. I'm in AP English as well.

I'd also like to volunteer. I've done first year English...
