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.
Omkar has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 1 question submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
Many people think Organic Chem is impossible. Omkar makes it seem easy. I understood more in my first two sessions with Omkar than I did in the whole first month of lecture with my professor. He breaks down every topic with you very clearly and will do problems with you until you understand it. He actually cares that you do well and understand the material and you can tell he has a passion for science. He is always willing to help and makes time to come and help you. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for tutoring because he is great and makes me feel 10 times more comfortable about the material going in to a test.Thomas, 12 lessons with Omkar
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
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
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
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.Lindsay, 10 lessons with Omkar
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.Alana, 63 lessons with Omkar
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
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
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!Iveliz, 8 lessons with Omkar
