    If you want to say that you have finshed doing something, your homework for example, say "I have done my homework". "I am done" is not good English and should be avoided.

    If you want an answer that bypasses the unacceptability of "I am done", you could ask about the difference between:
    "I am finished"
    and
    "I have finished".
