The comma in the poll statement is unnecessary.
Sorry to correct you but otherwise you won't learn :-P

It is perfectly correct; there's no need for a comma if the if- clause comes after the condition.

It's better to say, "If you don't correct student's mitakes...". "Correct a student" sounds like putting a student into a correctional institute.

You can use "they" instead of "he or she" when referring to a singular correlate.
