About Graham


Bio

My entire life I have enjoyed teaching and helping others. Throughout 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. After high school I attended the University of Oregon for a B.A. in Economics, with a minor in Mathematics, and a GPA of 3.67.

My entire life I have enjoyed teaching and helping others. Throughout 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. After high school I attended the University of Oregon for a B.A. in Economics, with a minor in Mathematics, and a GPA of 3.67.

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 able to better 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 your student is struggling with classes or needs help preparing for the SAT, ACT, AP Exams, etc., I can provide the attention and organization that your student needs to realize his or her full potential.

I graduated Valedictorian from Westview High School with a weighted GPA of 4.23 and a class rank of 9/689. On the SAT I scored 790 Math, 780 Verbal, 690 Writing. I scored a 5 on the AP Exams for Physics, Calculus AB, Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, and English Literature, and a 4 on the AP Exams for English Language, European History, and U.S. Government and Politics.

Public Speaking,

Public Speaking

I, like most people, was once scared to death of public speaking. Ultimately, I have found that mastering public speaking is about practice and having confidence in what you are saying, but mainly practice. In high school I took a speech class that covered both prepared and impromptu speaking, and have since had plenty of experience at both. I was President of my fraternity for two years, after which I served as VP of Community Relations for the Inter-Fraternity Council at the University of Oregon. These positions required me to conduct meetings and speak to groups of my peers every week about a variety of topics, from simple administrative and logistical problems to complex values-based dilemmas. I also led assemblies of hundreds of students in discussions of both social and personal issues. Public speaking is about comfort and enthusiasm, and with practice I can help anyone feel that way.

Sports/Recreation

Chess,

Chess

When I was five, I started playing chess with my parents. I played in Chess Club throughout elementary and middle school, and played on my high school's chess team for 2 years. In 8th grade, I placed 3rd individually in the Oregon Chess for Success State Tournament. I enjoy teaching chess because it is a game of pure skill with practically infinite room for advancement, yet people of all ages and skill levels can enjoy it. A wonderfully complex game, chess disciplines one's mind. I credit chess and games like it with much of my success in school.
Poker,

Poker

I started playing poker competitively in high school and have played ever since. Starting with regular home games, I quickly progressed to playing online. I have many books on poker strategy, both for tournaments and cash games, which I use to help set-up lesson plans and provide students with homework material.
Soccer

Soccer

I love soccer. I've played on a team every year since I was 5, from recreational leagues to club competition, and every year I love it more. A simple game of skill, tactics, and athleticism, soccer provides both great exercise and a life-long challenge that doesn't ruin your body as do many other sports. Any healthy person can play, and leagues from casual to competitive are available year-round. Soccer is easily my favorite sport. In teaching soccer, I focus on fundamentals. The most beautiful, elegant, and stunning plays in soccer come not from learning some set of complex moves and tricks, but rather are a natural extension of a fundamental, instinctual feel for the ball and how to move with it, called touch. One of the best things about soccer is that, although it is a team sport, it is easy to practice alone, enabling you to improve as much as you want and develop that instinctual feel. By using good practice techniques and focusing on particular needs, I give students the ability to achieve whatever goal they wish.
