If you are not a professional writer or language arts teacher grammar and spelling may be a struggle. It is, however, an important skill in writing and clearly communicating. With the escalation of technology spell check became a valuable tool to improve and double check for mistakes in writing. However, it is not an infallible resource as it does not always pick up on grammar errors or words that are spelled correctly although, used incorrectly in a sentence. Today that has changed, there are now websites that check for grammar or spelling mistakes and even plagiarism. Some of these websites like turnitin.com or grammarly.com preform these services for a cost and others, such as, PaperRater.com are free. These can be significant tools for educators and students to take advantage of for example, as a teacher if you read something from a student and suspect plagiarism you can use websites to check out your suspicion and get proof. It also allows students to double check their work and confirm they are not plagiarizing another's composition and/or ideas without proper citation.
