Would tutoring other students be considered an extracurricular activity?

Hello, I provide tutoring to my peers in various subjects after school. Is this something I should list as an extracurricular activity on my college applications? Thank you!

Hi there! Tutoring others is definitely something you can consider as an extracurricular activity, and you should feel proud of your contribution. Many colleges appreciate students who are engaged in helping others and showcasing their academic strengths.

Not only does it demonstrate your knowledge in the subjects you tutor, but it also highlights your leadership, communication, and dedication to helping fellow students. Make sure to include the subjects you tutor, the time commitment per week, and any specific accomplishments or impacts you've made during your tutoring experience.

Including tutoring as an extracurricular activity on your college application will give admissions officers more insight into your skills and personal qualities. Best of luck with your college applications!
