Presentation of essay

I have started a student group in Facebook to help my class mate in studying. Questions may be they are afraid to ask teachers or they think too stupid to ask. So how can I present it most beautifully in my college essay.
I know it’s a weird question but please help me

    keep in mind that colleges care more about results...so if you created a group that nobody uses, that is not of interest to colleges. So making up some numbers:


    "Created Facebook group to support classmates when studying. Focused on answering questions students were afraid to ask in class. Group grew to 50 students in one month with 200 questions answered."

    I would be careful with this as an essay topic. My first thought was that you are not doing anyone any favors by enabling them not to go for help at school. That's a necessary life skill and one that all students will need in college. Framing it as an tutoring group might be better.

    You are saying that I can give students free tuition and that will be great as a topic. Actually I do give free tuition to poor children and my maids kids.
    How should I present that

    No one mentioned tuition.

    Think hard whether a fb group to help study , including your "maids kids," is somthing special to colleges. What makes you an expert? Why fb and not in person?

    Lots of kids, lots and lots of them, tutor. It's not a stretch, just a nice thing.

    Tutoring your classmates is a nice thing to do. It isn't necessarily a good essay topic. You don't need to mention the classmates' family incomes or what their mothers' occupations are.
