The service learning experience has demonstrated that helping enrich the lives of young people through volunteering is an enriching process that is essential for personal development. About ten years ago, I helped other high school kids by tutoring math and the outcome was very encouraging. Motivated by this experience, helping students improve their mathematical skills through individualized tutorage has become an important issue that I intend to pursue in the future. During the service project, I worked with three high school students with whom we reviewed different mathematics questions and test strategies that would help the students improve their mathematical skills and perform better in school. The service learning was an eye-opening experience since it presented an opportunity to practice skills and knowledge acquired in class. For the seven weeks that I worked with the three students, we established a personal relationship that enhanced the learning experience. Service learning presents an individual with the opportunity to become an active member of the community.
