If you need help getting started, don't think about it. Take those chapters and just read them as if it was the first time you've ever read them. When something strikes you as not quite right, you still have the ability to change it.
If that doesn't work, either A. put it aside and write something else for awhile. Have at least a week go by before you pick it up again, and then try to read through it to find your mistakes. The longer you wait the better. Or B. Hand a hard copy to a friend/family member/ teacher, someone you trust to give you an honest opinion and give them a red pen and say 'Have fun!' They'll get to enjoy your story, while improving it for you. Sometimes a new set of eyes is the best way to go.
Good luck ^_^

I need to get back in to revise a couple of chapters.
