Example Paragraph for warm up #3 I am a helpful person. In fact, just this morning, I helped a former student, Miguel Matos, edit and print his paper for Senior English. I also help my son with his homework, and his best friend, Tal. Last night, Tal needed help finding his course syllabus for his TCC dual credit English class, so I hopped online and showed him where to sign up for access to his account electronically. It is clear that the word helpful describes me perfectly.
