Do I have to edit and revise?

My professor asked me to edit or revise my essay. Do I have to make changes?


Revision and editing are two important steps to any writing process. Whether you're drafting a text to a friend or an assignment to your professor, you need to review your work before submitting it. Here are a few tips on revising and editing your work:

  • Show your work to someone else: Ask a friend or family member to review and help you clarify any unclear ideas. Ask your professor to look at your paper, but remember that they may need your request several days or a week in advance.
  • Ask a tutor: Tutoring by Brainfuse offers two options for revision and editing. One is the Live Writing Tutor, who can discuss your writing in real-time. The second is the drop off writing review, where you can submit your writing and receive a response within 12 hours.
  • Use Microsoft Editor: Editor provides instant feedback on grammar, word choice, and even tone. Make this one of your last steps before submitting the assignment or sending that email.
