All good writers should review their work at least once (preferably several times), even if they plan to have an editor look it over. One thing you can look for when reviewing your work is wordiness. In work meant strictly for an academic setting (your psychology course paper), it’s not as much of a problem; however, in scholarly papers, especially those submitted to journals for publication, wordiness is the bane of the editor.  

For example, I strongly recommend finding and deleting the phrase “in order” as it is completely unnecessary and only causes the reader to work harder for the same meaning. For example, a sentence such as, “The researcher used Chronbach’s alpha in order to assess the probability of a Type I error” reads much more fluidly by removing the extraneous words in question.
