On April 8, 2014, I went to Canal District with three other volunteers to help the kids there with math and science. I worked with a very smart girl named Emy (fictional). I taught her how to solve problems by using equations. It was very hard for her to understand at first. However, after doing several practice problems, she started doing well. In the end, she could finish her homework correctly without asking me for help. After her homework, we went over some multiplication flashcards which she was very good at. She could give the correct answers right after she saw the questions. It was fun to work with the kids and help them with their academics. I enjoyed my time there.
