Sample Answer

Helping others and caring for them is a noble gesture and reflects one’s humanity. I have helped many people in my life with various things. I think it to be the best thing that I can do to give back to the world and make it a better place to live.

One such time was when I helped a small child with his studies, specifically his exam preparations. When I was in the tenth standard, our maid brought her son along with her so that she could keep an eye on him while he studied. He was in the fifth standard and was a weak student causing his mother to be worried about him. I called him up to my study table and looked at his books. With her permission, I sat down to guide him through his course material, one subject after the other. After two hours, we both were tired and I asked him to come to me daily from the next day. His mid-term examinations were due in a month and I decided to tutor him for two hours each day till then. I followed a set timetable dedicating time to each subject. I taught him all the important chapters, cleared his doubts, and gave him homework and a lot of questions for his practice.

He slowly and steadily gained confidence and performed well in his exams. All I did was to help him become focused and practice to become adept at learning and answering questions. He thanked me a lot and I was glad that I could help him with his studies.
