Tutor description

“I long, as does every human being, to be at home wherever I find myself.” (Angelou). This quote seems to answer the question of what is the difference between house and home. It implies that a home can be anywhere but a house is just a building. Even though people would like to think that this quote is always true, maybe it isn’t. In Judith Cofer’s essay “Silent Dancing”, she tells of how her house was her home and that anywhere else would be foreign to her. On the other hand, Michael Lewis writes about his house in “The Mansion” and says that his is too big to be a home. David Sedaris also has a different view of his house in “This Old House”. He establishes his view of his house based on the things inside it instead of the people inside it.

Her house in Patterson is the earliest thing she remembers from her childhood even though she was born in Puerto Rico. She states that even though her father wanted to leave Patterson, her mother did not. The only thing his money could not buy us was a place to live away from the barrio -- his greatest wish, Mother's greatest fear (Cofer). Her and her mother thought of their house, and the neighborhood, as their home. One of the reasons for their longing to stay in their
