Thank you for using Wordvice!
I edited your essay to correct English language, grammar, punctuation, and phrasing. I have also checked the text for word choices, clarity, and conciseness, and made some changes to ensure consistency throughout the paper.
Specifically, I did find a few issues with transition terms, especially at the beginning of paragraphs. Transitions are important in creating flow between ideas in an essay. Please confirm that the transitions I have used are suitable to you.
Consider asking for me by name with your next project.
Best of luck,
