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!
