    They will want to see your writing, not ours.

    Re: Hey Teacher , Can you check my punctuation and grammer

    Are you sure all that in the first paragraph were the exact words written by the university instructing you to write the essay? The whole paragraph in one continuous sentence? You have also followed suit by using commas between sentences, which is not correct,.
