I understand 'nitty gritty' is something specific; the essential thing. Is it also applied in these following lines?
"correcting the average amount of errors that I am presented with is too nitty gritty for me."

'nitty-gritty' means the basic facts or detailed issues. A common phrase is
let's get down to the nitty-gritty.
I can't tell why our new product new product stopped working. So let's get down to the nitty-gritty and find out what happened.
meaning doing a detailed examination of all the facts related to the product, to find out what failed.
Or if you were having relationship problems with someone close to you, you could say
Let's get down to the nitty-gritty and figure this out.
In your example:
Correcting the average amount of errors that I am presented with is too nitty gritty for me.
may be OK but it sounds strange to me. I would say
Correcting the average amount of errors that I am presented with is too difficult for me.
maybe meaning it's too hard but also could mean it takes too much time.
