    So I do a significant amount of volunteer tutoring in my area, but it isn't through a specific program, per se. I just regularly meet seperately with a few kids of family friends in my neighborhood and help them with math one on one.

    I know AMCAS asks you to give a title and reference. Given my situation, what would I call this? Volunteer private tutoring? More importantly, who would I reference? I wouldn't bother categorizing this if it didn't consume so much time during the week (more or less 6-10 hrs/week).

    Thanks. :thumbup:

    Pick one [polite, responsible, well-spoken] parent, I guess.

    Just make sure you warn them that they could possibly be called, but LizzyM has said that the confirmation calls are extremely, extremely rare.

    EDIT: wait, wait, wait. FREE?? Do pre-meds get paid for anything any more?

    Just leave it blank; I did that with quite a few of my self-motivated ECs.

    yeah I just put "private tutoring" down. There really isn't anyone to reference.

    I tutor as well. On my AMCAS, for organization I put "The X family" and listed the mom as the reference. I don't think it matters too much.
