Model Answer:
Recently, I had to teach my younger sister and it was an amazing experience for me. In fact, it was the very first teaching experience of mine in my life. I am a college student in Milan in Italy and been studying science in major. So, my mom asked me to help my younger sister with Physics who is in her ninth grade and was struggling with the subject.

Julee was supposed to appear in her final exam and had trouble with her Physics. She could not complete the entire course for her insincerity. And now it was my turn to make her skilled in the subject a few days before the final exam. I do not know what she did across the academic year. And it was not a happy task for me.

I taught her Physics. Though the subject was interesting to me, it was not similar to her. She did not understand the basics of the subject let alone the equations. So, I had to begin from the initial parts of the subject. I taught her for about three weeks and she did well in the exam. In fact, I forced her to study and change her daily routine. I told her to study Physics for at least half an hour in a day. She followed my advice and the grade on the subject was good.

In the beginning, it was challenging for me to teach her because I did not have the experience before. Moreover, there were some adjustment problems with her. She did not want to learn from me. But finding no other ways, she was compelled to study under my directives. And now she is happy and thanked me for forcing her. She is also committed that she will never leave her studies in future.
