Bio

About myself: I graduated in May 2013 with BS in Biomedical Engineering with highest honors (Summa Cum Laude), and minors in Chemistry and Materials Science.

About myself: I graduated in May 2013 with BS in Biomedical Engineering with highest honors (Summa Cum Laude), and minors in Chemistry and Materials Science. I also graduated as a pre-medical student and have a strong background in the basic sciences (organic chemistry, biochemistry, genetics) in addition to engineering coursework. Through my classes, I especially developed a deep understanding of physics and chemistry, along with math-related subjects (calculus I and II, multivariable calculus, differential equations). I also have been accepted to medical school (MD degree), and will be matriculating into the Class of 2019.

My Tutoring Background: I have tutored chemistry, physics, math, and English for about 8 years, including high school tutoring in chemistry, and basic math and English to young students at the Kumon Learning Center. Throughout college, I have taught at my University Quantitative Tutoring Center, where I have experience with individual tutoring, as well as groups up to 5/6 students. In this position, I have had experience tutoring college-level chemistry, physics, math, and statistics on a regular basis during the week from 2010-2013. I also was a tutor at tutor.com from 2013-2014, through which I helped students with high school and college chemistry and physics.

My Tutoring Approach: My approach is very simple: I cater the sessions to the specific needs of the student while providing a general background of the concepts related to the problem. I ensure that the student has a sound understanding of the concepts before proceeding, in order to make sure all successive steps are understood as well as possible by the student. I stress an understanding of the fundamental concepts, since I believe once these are grasped effectively, the student can attack many more questions with a higher degree of confidence in their problem solving approach.

Organic Chemistry

I graduated in 2013 with a minor in chemistry, which included organic chemistry I and II. After taking these classes, I frequently helped students in Organic I and II to answer questions about concepts and help them solve problems. Also, I was a premedical student throughout my undergrad and have taken the MCAT exam. This exam includes an organic chemistry section, and I have reviewed the concepts in order to answer challenging problems.

Excellent tutor for very complex subject

Omkar helped my son with a masters course level in organic chemistry. The course is very advanced and Omkar diligently worked to help understand the subject matter. We greatly appreciate the support.

Mirna, 5 lessons with Omkar

Fantastic Instructor!

He’s been imparting superb chemistry instruction to my son. He has provided excellent instruction with a profound knowledge and insight of the subject. My son is totally pleased and we continue to use his services. We highly recommend him. Thank you, Omkar!

Rian, 5 lessons with Omkar

Chemistry

He was very good at explaining material I was confused on and answered all my questions!! Overall it was a great session!

Oyidie, 1 lesson with Omkar

Great tutor!

Omkar is a great tutor. He is very patient and is very knowledgeable of the subject. He is helping me with AP chemistry and he breaks down the material so it is easy to understand. Always easy to contact to schedule tutoring times.

Great Organic Chemistry Help!

I've had about 4, 2 hour lessons so far reviewing organic chemistry with Omkar and so far, I can't think of anything I'd complain about. Omkar has been very patient, knowledgeable, and professional but not intimidating. As someone who is very shy, I was surprisingly comfortable and able to easily focus on the material. The reasoning and logic behind chemistry rarely comes naturally to me (I've failed orgo. 2 before), so having someone there to patiently explain things helps me a lot to learn the concepts, rather than just resort to brute memorization. Omkar regularly pauses to let me write things down, digest info., or ask Qs so I never feel like I'm running behind, like I would in a college lecture. I specified that I wanted a tutor that would not just answer troublesome Qs, but would provide structure. I didn't want the hassle of having to figure out what material I need to cover when or what problems to do. Omkar not only is accessing my knowledge and deciding when to cover what material for me, but also is going through example problems to ensure I understand the concepts, and assigning problems for me to do in between lessons for practice. His experience tutoring orgo. shows.

Good and helpful tutor.

Omkar B. is a patient and helpful tutor. He will push you to understand the material and give you the tools to figure things out on your own. He was prompt with communication and willing to have long sessions to make sure that you understand. He has a good understanding of organic chemistry. I recommend him as a tutor.

Korey, 44 lessons with Omkar

Amazing!

Omkar is a very patient and knowledgeable tutor. He is very good at breaking down very complex topics and explaining them in a clear and concise way that is easy to understand. Before tutoring, I couldn't understand the textbook material in the textbook, but now I can read through it with little to no difficulty. After only five sessions, I feel more prepared for organic chemistry than I did after a month of continuous study on my own.

Scott, 7 lessons with Omkar

Available and knowledgeable

Omkar was the first tutor to respond to my request for help with chemistry. He has worked with me several times, reviewing problems and concepts. His approach was thoughtful and to the point.

Carol Ann, 4 lessons with Omkar

Great Tutor!

Omkar has helped me to really understand organic chemistry! He understands the material and is very good at teaching. There is definitely an improvement in my grades. Would recommend him to anyone!
