How are people able to read bad text and correct it?

I remember in highschool, top students were able to proofread my English papers and find constant errors in them. How are they doing this?

    They know good text when they see it, so they also know when it's bad.

    They know the rules. Think about something you know well enough to teach. Riding a bike, playing an A major cord, starting a lawn mower or throwing a dart and hitting the bullseye for example. They can teach what they know. You can teach what you know.
