Hi! I'm Graham Everett. My pronouns are (he/him). I'm originally from a small town in Northern California, and I relocated to Denver in July 2020. Some fun facts about me, I drove a double-decker bus (both London and American types!) while at UC Davis for undergrad. I'm also an identical twin. He is also a tutor, so I guess the desire to help others succeed academically could be genetic.
My academic experience varies between the hard and soft sciences; I really enjoy psychology and chemistry, but I'm also what you'd call a political and history junkie. I firmly believe we all have the aptitude to learn anything we set our minds to. The trick is just finding a connection to the material that interests us - the rest will come naturally with a little encouragement.
Something else important about me is my service in the Peace Corps. In 2019, I was deployed to the Gambia, a small country in West Africa. I lived in a very small, rural village where I learned a local language, ate and slept in a family compound (I had my own hut, thankfully), trained teachers at the local elementary school. This experience is very dear to me. I learned a lot about resilience, integrity, perseverance, self-care, and my goals in life. The world can be a rough place, and the best (and sometimes only) thing anyone can do is help where and when you can.
Thanks for reading about me! I look forward to helping you achieve your academic goals.
