How to Cite footnotes for an English paper

In this video from thedarkwanderer we learn how to footnote your references in a paper. For this you need a list of your references used. Place a superscript right after the last word that you want to acknowledge. Then place the note proper at the bottom of the same page. Put the footnote numeral slightly raised followed by the note proper. Make sure that the superscript number corresponds to the number of the footnote. Keep the footnotes flush with the paragraphs of your text. Footnotes coming from the same source just need the author's name and not the whole footnote text again. Footnotes should be separated from the text by a tiny line starting at the left margin on the first line below the text. Double spaces should be used in between footnotes and single spaces should be used for longer footnotes.
