Admissions Advice

What if I've been doing something for longer than just HS?
Answered

I'm an International Student from Brazil. One of my main ECs is being a volunteer tutor (Portuguese, Math, English, and Bible Studies) for local underprivileged kids. This is so important to me that my main essay talks about it. The thing is: I've been doing it since 7th grade. How can I/Should I inform this on my common app?

I think you should write it either in description to extracurricular or in additional info because that's really impressive. Hope this helps:)
