    As a Freelance writer and proofreader, I decided to enroll in this course to refresh my grammar skills. I enjoyed the video presentations and reviewing the slides afterwards helped to retain certain information. I found the lessons on subject/verb agreement and prepositions to be very helpful, as these are subjects in writing that I still struggle with. Overall, I would recommend this course to anyone who is open to proofreading on a professional level.
