About Utkars

I am a motivated interdisciplinary science student seeking to tutor students. In my undergraduate career I majored in Applied Mathematics and Neuroscience, with minors in Chemistry and Bioengineering. I consistently challenged myself throughout my undergraduate career, taking honors courses whenever possible. It is my mantra that anyone can learn to do anything with hard work!

Now, I am getting my Ph.D. in Bioengineering with my research being in predictive healthcare and diagnosis of pathologies. I am really excited about teaching people the subjects of "STEM"!

I was a tutor at Kumon for 3 years, and I have been a private tutor for 3 years. I have been a teaching assistant for Pitt for 2 years. Since neuroscience is a very interdisciplinary field, I can help in a variety of subjects. I am very qualified to tutor anyone in the mathematical, natural, or physical sciences.

If you are not completely satisfied, then the lesson is free. I try to be flexible with time but, you need to call 24 hours ahead of our session to cancel it. Online students are encouraged! If there is something specific that you would like to work on, please send it ahead of time. If there is any subject that I am unfamiliar with I will try my best to learn it for you.

Please understand that my rate is completely flexible, and I will negotiate with you a fair level for both of us, as teaching is truly a passion of mine!

I am really busy so I cater only to those who live within a 5 mile radius of Pitt's campus, or can either meet me on Pitt's campus/my home, or online students.

Please let me know if I can offer you my services!
You can email me at my Wyzant email.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Calculus

I took AP calc AB and BC in high school, as well as calculus 3 in college with very high grades. I also took Vector analysis which is a rigorous treatment of many concepts found in multivariate calculus.

Linear Algebra

I am an applied math major at the University of Pittsburgh. I use Linear Algebra on many of my homework assignments. I took the honors Linear Algebra course at my College.

MATLAB

My research lies in data analysis of traumatic brain injury models. In order to analyze the data sets that the lab produces I use MATLAB. Not only that but I have taken many math classes that emphasize the use of MATLAB

Python

I work for a research lab, and one of my jobs is to create GUI applications. For this end I use Python. I have extensive knowledge of python, I learned through many hours of tutorials.

Expert Tutor, easy to reach, great availability, quick response to needs

Utkars is a very knowledgeable tutor who has given me great success in my online college Algebra course. He is very patient, not judgmental, and able to teach me multiple ways to learn a concept. He knows when I need more support, and when to push me to try the work on my own. I will continue to utilize his tutoring services ongoing for this, and possible future courses as well. He also is very fl
