In the past my English classes have been pretty standard in my point of view. Throughout the years with most of my teachers, I would be assigned a book to read and at the end of each book I would have to write a paper summarizing it in some cases or in other cases I would have to do a full fledged research paper about it. The summaries would be about two pages in length for the most part in the standard five paragraph way of writing. The research papers would usually be about five to six pages in length and I almost never had any idea how to start or format my paper because I had never really written long papers like it. I never really liked English classes for the most part because I was never really good in grammar or organizing my thoughts. I would spend hours in front of the computer with the cursor blinking with a blank screen and a blank mind having no idea where to start.

To make it worthwhile I would like to do projects that deal with the things that I experience in my life so that I can put my writing together into a well prepared essay....

    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.
