About Graham


Bio

Throughout my life I have enjoyed teaching and helping others. In high school and college, friends came to me for help in all subject areas; my teachers even grouped me with struggling students so that I could help them through difficult concepts and class work.

I graduated valedictorian from Westview High School in Portland, OR with a weighted GPA of 4.23 and a class rank of 9/689. After high school I attended the University of Oregon Honors College for a B.A. in Economics with a minor in...

Throughout my life I have enjoyed teaching and helping others. In high school and college, friends came to me for help in all subject areas; my teachers even grouped me with struggling students so that I could help them through difficult concepts and class work.

I graduated valedictorian from Westview High School in Portland, OR with a weighted GPA of 4.23 and a class rank of 9/689. After high school I attended the University of Oregon Honors College for a B.A. in Economics with a minor in Mathematics, achieving a 3.67 GPA in my course work. I am currently working on an economics thesis in order to graduate with honors.

In tutoring, I first focus on understanding exactly what a student is having trouble with, then use a conceptual, process-based approach to building comprehension and skill. I find that by pursuing deeper understanding in a subject, students are better able to appreciate it, and in turn, learn and enjoy learning about it much more. The problem for many students is that, with classes of forty or more, teachers are unable to devote enough time and attention to each student. Whether you or your student is struggling with classes, needs to prepare for an exam, or is just looking for deeper understanding of an important subject, I can provide the attention and organization you need.

I have been a full-time professional tutor since 2013. In over 3000 hours of one-on-one and small group tutoring, I have seen my students develop academic confidence and skills that they have taken with them through college and beyond. Tutoring is most effective for students who are committed to success. I strive to make the best possible use of your time, and ask that you do the same for me. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!

Economics can be a confusing subject for many students because it is so ambitious in trying to explain the world and uses methods that are often unfamiliar. My students benefit from my perspective on the subject and ability to present economics as a set of tools for explaining common sense behavior.

The best!

I highly recommend him! Helped me with several review problems for an upcoming test. Quick response, very clear, easy to understand. Excellent statistics tutor! The best!

Gary, 1 lesson with Graham

Patient and thorough

Graham is a really nice guy and will meet you where you are. He's been working with me for precalc and has walked me through every step of my course. It's always been tricky for me to learn math in a classroom environment but Graham has managed to reteach me things I've missed while keeping me on track.

Samuel, 13 lessons with Graham

If I could give Graham more than 5 stars, I would!

Graham is an excellent teacher. He had looked ahead at the assignment that I had sent him and knew already what he needed to go over with me. I learned more from him in the two hours than I've learned in my entire class. I highly highly recommend him. :)

Thoughtful and comprehensive tutor

Graham is very good at taking a very holistic approach to an entire semester of work. He took the time to review the syllabus and suggested approaches how to tackle homework, papers, and tests. I really appreciate his comprehensive approach to the whole economics class.

Knowledgeable and accommodating

Agreed to meet me right before my statistics final for a review session. Great teacher who knows his stuff. He is patient and thorough and makes sure you fully understand concepts.

Improved Econ Test Score

My daughter has done well on the tests that Graham has tutored. The last two tests have been an “A”. He explains in a very understandable way on complex econ theory.

Jeannie, 4 lessons with Graham

Excellent

Terrific tutor, and he comes highly recommended. Graham is both prepared and available for appointments. We used his services for a college freshman economics course.

Nancy, 9 lessons with Graham

Great instructor!

This is our second session with Graham. After the first session, my daughter took an Algebra 2 exam. She was confident and went from a C- to a B+. He is given her the tools she needs to perform at her max potential in class. So pleased thus far. I highly recommend Graham for tutoring services.

Probability Tutoring - Great Patience

Graham and I reviewed probability problems that combined combinatoric techniques and concepts from conditional probability. He helped me define events and gave me guidance on how to reduce a sample space to make a problem more tractable and easier to understand. Graham was incredibly patient and he came to the tutoring lesson prepared, as he had clearly worked out the problems on my homework beforehand. There was also a problem that required the quadratic equation and Graham spotted it immediately--whereas I had not used the quadratic equation in years and had almost forgotten about it! Very much appreciated his time and he was very easy to work with.
