About Deepankar

I love teaching. While Biology is my specialty in terms of my training and experience, I can help students with Math, Chemistry and basic Physics as well. I did my postgraduate PhD and postgraduate training with the goal of becoming a scientist and an educator, and I have spent a number of years in academia and pharmaceutical industry doing scientific research. Now that I am teaching my kid again, I have taken the educator mode again and am enjoying it. Please let me know if I can help you with your studies in Biology.

I have tutored middle school students (all science subjects + Mathematics), high school students (Biology, Chemistry, Basic Mathematics), undergraduate students (my own classmates from University). After finishing my MS in Genetics, I taught University level Human Genetics Course for about 6 months. I tend to teach using examples, and emphasize on concept building.

I was myself a weak student of Mathematics when I was in middle school grades, but I found an exceptional teacher who helped me build my understanding in a simplistic manner. So much so, I became a good learner, excelled in Math, and I have tutored middle and high school students using the same techniques, and often the same examples. My basics are clear, and I start with very simple problems for better understanding and confidence building, gradually upping the game.

Biology has always been one of my favorite subjects, and I have had the god fortune of being taught by exceptional teachers. I took up biology research for my further education and professional development simply for the love of it, and I have been involved with the cutting edge research in biomedical research at University of Southern California (where I studies Biochemistry and Nucleic acid Biology) and at companies like Genentech, Larix Bioscience and other startup companies. I have a good foundation in biology and can introduce advanced concepts like genomics and latest in medical research. These days, even school students are getting training openings at University laboratories and industry laboratories, and I can seed and nurture (and perhaps guide specifically) that possibility.

I have a well rounded background in Biology research and hands-on training, and am very passionate about teaching and guiding students. I think it is important to build a strong foundation upon which a student can build his/her career, and with my experience, I can help the student in understanding the fundamentals well,and point him/her in the right direction.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Biochemistry

I have a PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and my PhD research was on understanding biochemical basis of nucleic acid behavior. I also took Biochemistry coursework during PhD, Masters and Bachelors training periods.
