Eduardo Barajas: College writing R1A; 12/3/08 From the Valley to the Bay Coming into a school like Berkeley poses many difficulties that I did not have to face at my high school but thankfully with the difficulties, comes help. In high school, English was never my best subject and when I did try to excel in English, the only comments I would get were “syntax” and “word choice.” I was always told that I did something wrong, but I was never properly told what I was doing incorrectly. Coming into this school, I believed that this class was going to be the most difficult and the biggest “pain in the ass” that I would ever encounter. On the contrary to my previous belief, this class has helped me develop more as a writer in 3 months than all me previous English classes before put together. It is not the quality of work expected that inspired me to do well in this class, but the attention to my mistakes and the help provided to change those mistakes is what had pushed me into doing better and become an improved writer that will do better in all his upcoming paper.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
