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.

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, 8 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.

Caught my son up

Graham came in and reviewed the Algebra II my son was not understanding. My son was relieved and confident after Graham’s tutoring session. He will be back next week. On top of that, my teenage son liked him!

Ginger, 9 lessons with Graham

Excellent tutor!

Graham has been working with my daughter on college intro to economics over her spring break. He is insightful and has expertly helped her catch up from a very weak first half of the semester. She feels so much more comfortable tackling the material and will keep up with him on line when she goes back to school. Thank you, Graham.

Patient and Knowledgeable

Helped with concepts stuck on and also on getting a head start on the upcoming unit to make information easier to follow during class. A useful technique with the online session.

Economics with Graham

I'm an OSU student and needed some help with Econ 201 Microeconomics. Graham was available on short notice and on the weekend. He was very helpful in assisting me with the areas I needed focus on . I plan to continue to use Graham. Thanks Graham!

Help for AP Statistic

My son said that Graham teaches him well and he likes Graham's attitude toward teaching. He said Graham is a responsible person and his teaching methods help him learning AP Statistics in a easier way.
