How due I send this for 24 hr. correction?


Last week I used this for one of my reports and a window opened asking if I wanted my work corrected by you guys instead of me working on it. well this week I have another assignment but nothing is opening in regards to having one of your experts correct this. PLEASE HELP!

See example:

In the glaring world of social promotion rather than meritocracy, and responsibility one can understand why teachers in America neither have time nor inclination to be concerned about "whole Person" as their counterpart is.

Hi Jim,

This forum is for questions & answers about grammar usage & those of us who answer here are just volunteering and participating on this forum.  We don't correct whole essays or do homework.  Since I don't work for Grammarly, I don't know what sort of message you may have gotten from other parts of their services. For questions about the various services or program/software issues, go to


For the sentence that you posted here, I can offer some help.


I think your comma is misplaced.  Are you comparing "social promotion" against "meritocracy and responsibility"?  Then the comma needs to come after responsibility


You are missing some articles.  I would insert the before the words time and whole person.  Also, person is not a proper noun, so it should not be capitalized. 


At the end of the sentence, you are comparing the amount of concern American teachers have versus how much their counterparts have.  One is not as concerned as the other.  You are missing the first as.  Also, remember to watch your agreement between singular and plural.  You have plural teachers, but only one counterpart.  In the context of your essay, is it clear who the counterparts are?  The counterpart to a teacher in America could be a teacher in another country, or it could be another type of person (such as a counselor) in America.  Since you are talking about a world of social promotion, I don't know which one you mean.
