comment Replacing actually with a more formal alternative
The use of greatly and similar qualifying words/ phrases may always be contested in an academic report. What is great to you may not be (so) great to another objective reader/ reviewer. Generally, the "by about thirty per cent" would take the place of greatly, leaving it to the reader to decide how significant thirty per cent is.

comment How do I keep up with current written English language?

Quite likely. However, there are significant differences between AmEng and other dialects in spelling, sentence structure, even the use of words, so much so that many who are not native speakers of AmEng fail to understand correctly.
