i am home for my summer vacation.. here i am guiding a student for his +2 , and his IITJEE preparations.. physics..

i have also taken such short classes for couple of other students previously .. i was wondering whether this could be a valid or a +ve point for my SOP or even CV?? however i have not worked as a professional teacher.. just a volunteer.

what do you say?

Yeah definitely it will help.

The best tool in SOP is rhetoric. Try to make the admissions committees believe that it was YOU who was responsible for specific people getting into Indian Institute of Technology's. Actually, try to get a few of your students' permissions to mention them by name and improvement of score when you put them in your SOP.

The IITs are pretty selective in their admissions, you might also want to mention them in your statement, especially if you attended one.
