    I just finished my PS but I don't know who I should show it to.

    I am on a gap year, so can't give it to a teacher to read it.

    My friends relatives have no time.

    I need to improve the language, punctuation, grammar...

    Who should I go to?

    Thanks for the answer. But my parents' English is not that great and I went to school and contacted some former teachers, but they said their current students would have priority.

    Friends or distant relatives don't have time.

    I myself have been reading it over and over again almost every day and keep improving bits, but still I believe someone else reading it would make a huge difference.

    Send it to me if you like, i've already applied etc?
    Mine has already been sent off months ago, so you know it'd be safe.
    I'll read it through if you like.
