Also, as I did not have skills and experiences at teaching, especially teaching kids before, I was worried. But after asking my mentor and other volunteers what and how they did it before, search from the children books to find suitable vocabularies to teach them and use English terms as simple as I can, those local kids were very enjoy, learned well in the classes and like to play and communicate with me after the classes. Thus, I had discovered my new ability to teach and take care of children that I had never thought about I’m capable of.

For as long as I remember I never was the best at trying out different techniques for writing. I have always stuck with the same format simply because even when I was in high school, my teachers didn’t implement any new forms of writing.
