During my pre-college, college, and graduate school years, I have learned the use of study skills. After graduation and during the next 15 years, I have work experience with the use of Study Skills. I have taught and am teaching pre-college, college, and graduate school students the use of study skills. One of my most successful techniques is called the Circle-of-Learning. Students introduce themselves to a chapter. Next the students learn in detail the chapter subject. Lastly the students review what they have learned. Students have improved their retention of the material significantly with this method. One student used this technique on the reading section of an exam and was excited that she went through the test without significant fears.

I have over 15 years of classroom and work experience with Pharmacology. As a Medical Doctor, I use Pharmacology everyday in my medical, teaching, and tutoring profession. My training and learning consist of direct and indirect courses of Pharmacology at the undergraduate and graduate college levels. My teaching and tutoring experience consist of pre-college, undergraduate, and graduate classes. One tutoring method I use with Pharmacology is the use of a math framework. The student builds up his/her Pharmacology knowledge on a framework that is familiar to her/him. The familiar framework is math. One student dreaded Pharmacology. She did very well in the beginning with the math section. She was excited when she passed the class building on her math knowledge.
