My undergraduate degree was in neuroscience and included extensive non-class related laboratory experiences. This give me a good working knowledge of most micro, molecular, and cellular biological systems, and the ability to figure out and explain new ones or ones that I'm not familiar with as well.
I'm also well versed in techniques used to study these subjects and their applications. Having received my Masters degree in Biomedical Engineering working on Biomaterial Development, I now do cell culture experimentation and molecular genetics in the Chemistry department at MIT.
I had an undergraduate minor in chemistry and am now doing my PhD in biomedical engineering with a focus on chemistry. This being the case, I have a very good working knowledge of basic chemical and biochemical concepts and their applications and can generally figure out how to work through problems and how they apply to the real world.
I've worked with pre-school and school aged children in reading and math through the Americorps Program in JumpStart and Head Start classrooms. These programs were dedicated to one on one interactions with children for early reading and math skills. I've also worked at daycare centers with school age children assisting them with homework and problem solving in a variety of situations.
I'm a graduate student with a high work ethic and high grades in my academic work during both my undergraduate and graduate careers which reflect that. Study skills are a matter of organizing your resources and your time in the most efficient way possible in order to learn the material necessary for a course or subject so that you will be able to recall and use the material again later. Be it in the next few days on an exam, in the next few weeks or months for a course, or over a lifetime for real life applications of the material to real world situations, figuring out how to organize yourself in your studying efforts is the first step to success. This organization also allows identification of problem areas and preemptive or corrective action to head off or attempt to fix difficulties before they become detrimental.
