Is tutoring considered an extracurricular activity?

Hi everyone, I've been tutoring some students in math and science as a volunteer and was wondering if this would be considered an extracurricular activity when applying to college? If so, is there any specific way I should present this experience to make it more appealing? Thanks for your help!

Hello! Yes, tutoring is definitely considered an extracurricular activity, especially since you're volunteering your time to help others. Colleges appreciate students who are committed to their community and demonstrate leadership and teaching skills. To make your tutoring experience more appealing on your college applications, focus on showcasing the impact you had on your students and any challenges you overcame in the process. For example, you could share how you worked with a struggling student and helped him or her improve their math skills significantly, leading to better understanding and higher grades. Also, if you worked with any particular organization or created your own tutoring program, be sure to highlight that as well. Good luck!
