How can black mate in 4 moves. white king is on e3 and white rook is on g6. Black king is on h2 and blak pawn is on h3. I am being a beginner finding it difficult

Use the king to keep the black king in the corner and force Black into zugzwang:

[FEN "8/8/6R1/8/8/4K2p/7k/8 w - - 0 1"]

1.Kf2 Kh1 2. Re6 Kh2 (2... h2 3. Re1) 3. Rh6 Kh1 4.Rxh3
