Should I list tutoring as an extracurricular activity?

Hey there! I tutor some students in math and science on weekends. Is tutoring considered an extracurricular activity, and should I include it on my college application? Thanks in advance for your advice!

Hi there! Absolutely, tutoring is considered an extracurricular activity and can be a valuable addition to your college application. Colleges appreciate when applicants demonstrate a commitment to helping others and sharing their knowledge, which is exactly what you're doing through tutoring.

When including tutoring on your application, make sure to provide some detail about your experience, such as the subjects you tutor, the age of the students, and the number of hours per week you dedicate to tutoring. You can also mention if you volunteer your time or if it's a paid position. If you've been doing this for a while, it's great to emphasize the duration of your commitment as it shows consistency and dedication.

Keep up the good work, and best of luck with your college applications!
