Does tutoring count as an extracurricular activity?

Hi, I'm a junior and I've been tutoring younger students in math for a while now. Can I consider tutoring as an extracurricular activity for my college applications? I'd appreciate any guidance!

Hello! Tutoring younger students in math definitely counts as an extracurricular activity for your college applications. Colleges value activities that show your dedication and demonstrate your ability to help others.

Tutoring showcases your leadership, communication and teaching skills, which are all qualities sought by admissions officers. Be sure to include the time and commitment you've put into tutoring, as well as any positive outcomes, like students' improved grades or feedback from those you've helped.

Best of luck with your college applications and continue pursuing activities that you're passionate about!
