    I have an interest in helping others, from problems and advice to my two mentoring schemes at school (improving the reading and mathematical skills of younger students).

    Is that okay as it is or if it doesn't sound good could you rephrase that sentence please? It has to be the same number of words.

    It's for an application to a summer school to do mathematics

    I gain great satisfaction from helping others with their mathematical skills. Recently I was involved with two mentoring schemes at my school...

    I would try to say something stronger than "I have an interest in"...
