When you understand, you never forget it. This bit of knowledge helped me honor every subject I studied. I have an Undergraduate Degree from Alma College in Chemistry with minors in Biology and Math. I am also enrolled in my 4th year of Medical School at MSU. I have been tutoring friends, family and students for years and they all have seen marked improvement in their scholastic achievement. Some have even grown to like the subjects that once plagued them.
