- After-hours Tutoring is a very rewarding experience, and many of the kids are eager to learn and want your help. It takes tremendous patience and creativity to come up with new ways to get the kids excited about learning and to make them understand how this or that works, but it is amazing to see the light-bulb flash when the kids figure out and understand how to multiply 9 by 7 or to sound a word out.
- Another great part of this program is we organize parties where we can play with the kids. The kids love these parties and it is a great opportunity to get to know the kids even better. By volunteering, I provide students with a little more support and attention; I help them learn and become more confident. Working with the kids is the most rewarding part.
