About Vikas


Bio

Vikas earned his B.S. in Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior from UC Davis. During his time at UC Davis, Vikas participated in conducting clinical research at the UC Davis Medical Center ER. He also worked at the UC Davis Plant genomics center, trying to find the most efficient way to extract ethanol from plants to use as biofuel. Vikas has also recently graduated medical school and is currently in a post-doctoral fellowship/ residency working on various research projects.

Vikas has also recently graduated medical school and is currently in a post-doctoral fellowship/ residency working on various research projects.

Vikas has ample experience tutoring subjects in science such as organic chemistry, biochemistry, and biology to college students. He also teaches graduate health science classes such as physiology, pathology, neurology, etc. He likes to emphasize the concepts in a way that students are able to learn and apply them effortlessly.

Microbiology

Microbiology, the study of microbes deals with various types of microscopic prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Microbes can be characterized by their morphologies or stains. Bacterial gram stains can help differentiate between bacteria with peptidoglycan membranes. This allows for different medication to fight of different microbes. Viruses are also considered microbes and have different methods of reproduction. I have taken both Microbiology, and a graduate course on medical microbiology and received an 'A' in both subjects.
Organic Chemistry,

Organic Chemistry

Organic Chemistry is basically chemistry with carbon structures. Organic chemistry starts with nomenclature (IUPAC) of various compounds and drawing various structures in various forms, as in organic chemistry there are a lot of diastereomers, enantiomers, other types of isomers. The next major part of o-chem deals with substitution and elimination reactions. The four types Sn1, Sn2, E1, and E2 take place depending on various factors: leaving group, nucelophile strength and electrophile strength. Other topic on organic chemistry include different reactions with aromatics, nitrogen containing groups, carbohydrates, carboxylic groups, alcohols, aldehyde, esters, ether, and amino acids. Proton, IR and carbon spectroscopy along with other lab tests are a practical part of o-chem. My qualifications are that I have taken chem 118 A,B and C at UC Davis, which is considered the hardest O chem class offered for UCD undergrads. In these classes I have gotten a B+ or above ("A"s in my last two quarters). I also scored in the 90th percentile in the biological section of the MCAT, which includes organic chemistry.

I was a physiology major in college and completed numerous physiology classes in both undergrad and medical school. Getting a 3.7 GPA in my major in undergrad. I have been tutoring physiology for the past 5 years to both undergrads and graduate students.

Respectful and Knowledgeable

Vikas is very knowledgeable and knows how to interact with his students. He makes hard concepts easy to understand by using his experience in various science topics. I would highly recommend Vikas as a personal tutor.

Joy, 7 lessons with Vikas

Amazing!

Very knowledgeable in Organic Chemistry! Very calm and knows how to tackle any problems and difficulties a student has. Looking forward to taking lessons with him again!
