Also, when the students volunteer, they can see the lives of the poor people. Even though many people think that mandatory volunteering might be dangerous, we must do something good because it is a good idea to constructive way to spend time, and it is a community service. Mandatory volunteering it is a constructive way to spend time.

In addition mandatory volunteering is keeping teenagers away from the bad path such as drugs and smoking.
Being tutored is a good way to study because it saves time. Some students have said they did not like to wait for their classmates to ask questions in class because they had nothing to do. Also, sometimes, teachers have to explain something more specific to those students who are not so smart. However, when you ask a tutor for a consultation, you can get more attention and information, so you do not have to waste time waiting for your classmates. Therefore, you will be more efficient when you are being tutored.
Happiness can be shown with different pleasures. For example, involvement with family, having the patience for your kids, work and hobbies.

In How Adults Learn, Marcia says, “people can learn from the moment of birth. Learning can and should be a lifelong process. Learning shouldn't be defined by what happened early in life, only at school. We constantly make sense of our experiences and consistently search for meaning. In essence, we continue to learn”.
ACTIVE LEARNING: DEFINITION, JUSTIFICATION, AND FACILITATION Joe Cuseo DEFINITION OF ACTIVE LEARNING This is the broadest and most inclusive learning principle and it undergirds all other key learning processes. Active learning can be defined as an investment of a significant amount of mental energy and a high level of psychological involvement in the learning process. Student involvement in the learning process may be conceptualized as falling on a continuum of attention or engagement, ranging from active learning on one end to passive learning on the other. For instance, student engagement in class can range from being "passive" (e.g., total inattentiveness--looking out the window and thinking about other things) to "moderately active" (e.g., intermittent attention--tuning in only when the instructor writes something on the board) to "very active" (e.g., listening intently, taking notes, monitoring comprehension, asking questions, and participating in class discussions). The degree or amount of mental energy invested in the learning process increases substantially when students physically act on, or engage in some action with respect to, the material they are learning--i.e., they actually do something with the subject matter at hand.
Young learners find it difficult to understand abstract concepts, the content for them should be relevant and something they can relate to. Adults can understand abstract concepts and can relate easily to them. For young learners content should gradually progress from concrete to abstract. The young are at school because parents or government want them to be there Adults know what they wish to achieve by attending classes while the young do not. Adults are relevancy-oriented.
This is because; they are still conversant with their books therefore in the mood to read. They can easily grasp what they are taught because they are still in touch with school work and realize that they are students. If they were allowed some time off school, some tend to forget and lose interest in their books. It has been noted for instance that some students end up not attending the colleges because by the time the break ends, they tend to have lost interest for study. Joining college immediately also reduces the time wasted and the period of completing college prolonged.
Furthermore, active learners think about and research something ambitiously. For instance, many people give up easily researching something but an active learner doesn’t. Eventually, he/she learns and doesn’t forget it. On the other hand, keeping up with the school offers some advantages for active learners. Learners who keep up with the school cannot be lazy.
Some are not finically able to pay to get that formal education that they need to be successful in life. Formal education is not necessary because it may not guarantee success at all. Success is your own personal decisions that you work toward to better yourself, your dreams, and goals in life. Many people have had successful careers without a formal education because they are able to learn through their environment and remember things that enable them to get the best career without and education. College is not the highest level process of learning.
I once was a passive people and subsequently did not want to get in touch with and absorb any new things. But my tutor, a considerate people, who knows me very well likes to talk with me. He helps me build up self-confidence and makes me more optimistic. Now, I have a fancy for all kinds of fresh things, like the new specific knowledge. How I would be if I didn't meet such a qualified (competent) teacher.
