Tip: "on the right" and "to the right" are basically the same. The only difference is with the word "of."
We say "It's to the right of the house." Or we say, "It's next to the house, the right side." So use to with "to the right of _______."
Tip 2: Practice prepositions by writing down all the prepositional phrases in the paragraph. Learn more about prepositional phrases.
