I have obtained my PhD at University of Illinois at Chicago and used to work at Northwestern University School of Medicine as a researcher. Currently I work as a research scientist with a major pharmaceutical company.

Although I love doing research, mentoring students has brought into focus the fact that my passion also lies with educating and mentoring others.

I have had experience tutoring and mentoring students, at the high school, undergraduate, and graduate level. I have tutored three high school and undergraduate students one-on-one for several years in several different scientific disciplines (including biology, general chemistry, biochemistry and genetics). During my time as a graduate student at University of Illinois, I tutored students struggling in the course “DNA Structure and Function". All students in my group gained a new understanding of the subject and excelled on the final exam, passing the class. This gave me the opportunity to not only work with students, but to help them develop critical thinking skills. Finally, as a teaching assistant I taught the class “Introduction to Life Science Research” to Northwestern graduate students, including discussions and grading papers. These experiences of teaching students as well as helping them along with their research and their career development have helped shape my teaching philosophy.

With over 20 years of undergraduate and graduate education in biology (from basic and general to all the different specific and applied fields such as molecular and cellular biology), plus almost 20 years of experience working in the different biology research labs, both in academic and industry settings, I fell that I can offer a lot of insight to biology students. My main goal as biology tutor is not just to reiterate the facts from textbooks but try several different approaches (verbal, visual...) to help my students better remember their material, not just for the purposes of testing but as a part of their future careers. I'm equally comfortable with one-on-one in person settings as well as with the on-line method, including white board, audio, video, PDF and Power Point presentations.

Biochemistry,

Biochemistry

I've obtained my PhD in Molecular Genetics from the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics at UIC. So, even though my primary focus was molecular genetics, I have a strong background in biochemistry which is an inseparable part of the modern biological science curriculum and laboratory practice. Apart from studying it at graduate school, my undergraduate studies in Molecular Biology included several semesters of biochemistry, from basic to applied. Having tutored biochemistry through WyzAnt for some time now, I feel that I'm more than qualified to address various curricula that I encountered through the students I tutored.

Genetics,

Genetics

I have an undergraduate degree in Molecular Biology and Physiology from the University of Belgrade, Serbia. In addition, I have a PhD in Molecular Genetics from University of Illinois at Chicago. I currently work as a postdoctoral fellow in the field of skin cell biology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. I have experience tutoring and teaching biology and genetics related topics since graduate school, both in formal and informal settings.
Organic Chemistry,

Organic Chemistry

As a molecular geneticist I have a very strong background in organic chemistry as a necessity. During my undergraduate studies I took a three semester organic chemistry course with the lab (with a prerequisite in physical chemistry course a year before). In addition, I took a two semester organic chemistry of natural product course. As a tutor I most often tutored in general and organic chemistry. People have difficulties visualizing orbitals and electron transfers that are essential for understanding this subject. In my tutoring I always try to make them think in 3D and try to "see" the structure and electron flows depending on the charge of certain molecular groups (like methyl, etc). Once they do that, everything else falls into place. I'm proud to say that one of my students went from failing chemistry to being an analytical chemist!

Excellent Tutor

Viktor taught me the basic concepts of Organic Chemistry in a well and directive manner, he made concepts much clearer for me.

Owais, 1 lesson with Viktor

Viktor is an excellent listener and understands how to direct new students in the right direction for their studies.

Viktor helped me get better organized about my study of microbiology. His suggestions were professional and thought provoking and he helped me save money by not running out and buying a PCR device at this point of my studies! He is a patient and intelligent tutor who seems to intuitively understand his student's level of knowledge, but still be encouraging.

Great tutor!

Viktor tutored me once before my organic final and is currently tutoring me for my biochem class. He is one of the best tutors I have ever had. He really breaks things down to an understandable level and provides real life examples, which makes it easier to remember. He is also really great about getting back to you and working around your schedule.

I thought I would never understand organic chemistry!

I contacted Viktor last minute because I was failing my class... He was able to help me the next day. He helped me understand the main concepts that I can apply to everything. I realized organic chemistry is not that hard as long as you take the time to understand the reactions. After only one session I feel so much more confident in my class and will make sure to get more help if needed. Thank you! :)

Great Tutor!

Viktor is a great tutor! I have worked with him for a semester in Organic Chemistry, and now continuing into a second Semester. Organic Chemistry is a very rough class, with lots of hard concepts and problems. Viktor is very knowledgeable in the subject, explaining the complicated concepts and problems in a simple and easy to understand way =). I definitely came out of the tutoring sessions knowing a lot more, and I feel great that I was able to work with him! He is also very flexible and treats you as a priority, opening up his schedule to help in anyway he can! I have had several tutors from WyzAnt, and Viktor is definitely the best!

Excellent Online Tutor!

I am a full time college student. Viktor has done an excellent job tutoring me in my biochemistry class. He always addresses all of my questions and ensures I understand all of the concepts. He is one of the most knowledgeable (PhD) tutors that I have ever had, and I feel very fortunate to have found him. I highly recommend him!

Excellent Tutor

Victor is an excellent tutor. He is always well prepared for the lessons. He taught genetics for my daughter. She got an "A" as her final grade. He explains concepts well and always willing to help her. He is flexible and very encouraging.

Great Tutor

Viktor is a natural teacher that is passionate about biochemistry amongst other sciences. He helped me greatly in my preparation for my masters-level test in biochemistry. He took the time to prepare for each visit, work with me on my schedule, and ensure I understood each topic. I highly recommend Viktor for each subject that he has mastered in his career.
