Grammar Rules: Reason Is Because vs Reason Is That

Be careful to not make this mistake! It's not a huge deal, but most of the grammar things I've brought up aren't. Learning how to use these words will make editing with a professional editor so much easier in the long run.

Correct: reason is that

Incorrect: reason is because

his reason for eating the pie is that she told him not to.
