Is tutoring counted as an extracurricular activity?

Hey all, I have been tutoring some younger students in math after school. Can I list tutoring as one of my extracurricular activities on my college application? Thanks in advance for your help!

Hello! Absolutely, tutoring can be considered as an extracurricular activity on your college application. Colleges often appreciate when students take up tutoring, as it demonstrates qualities such as leadership, dedication, and a willingness to help others.

To help colleges understand its significance, be sure to provide relevant details about your tutoring experience, such as how many hours you spent tutoring per week, any improvements the students made under your guidance, or if you created any unique teaching strategies.

Best of luck with your college applications!
