One of the first pieces of literature I can remember my mom reading to me is Aesop’s Fables. I enjoyed my mom reading to me, although I struggled with reading independently. During elementary school, I attended a small Catholic school composed of 30 students per grade.

    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.
