Hello, I’m Dr. Graham! I’m known to family, friends, and colleagues as either Dr. G or just my first name, Martha. As the daughter and granddaughter of well-established academicians, I was raised in an academic environment where the importance of education and respect for the learning process were greatly valued. I firmly believe that all students deserve an equal opportunity to learn and that learning should also be enjoyable. This is the approach I’ve taken with my teaching, and have found it to be both highly effective and efficient. Furthermore, I strive to uphold three principles that I
believe are critical to successful teaching and fostering a productive student-teacher connection: integrity, personal accountability, and approachability. These principles have aided me in the facilitation of building a strong foundation for addressing individual student needs, developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills, reinforcing core concepts, and applying subject matter to real-life situations.
I’m a 33-year-old Alabama native that enjoys listening to music, watching my favorite television shows, and reading epic fantasy novels. I relocated to the Greater Atlanta Area in 2012 to attend graduate school at Mercer University and the University of Georgia, and chose to remain in the area after completing my studies to continue with my career in scientific research. My background and expertise are highly concentrated in the biological sciences, particularly in cell and molecular biology, microbiology, and neuropharmacology. Additionally, I also possess high levels of proficiency and competency in anatomy and physiology, chemistry, english composition, literature, and history.

I took graduate English classes at Case Western Reserve University during my tenure at university libraries. With a background as an academically trained actor, playwright, and published author writing under the nom de plume of Ian Bar, I bring an energetic and proactive approach that engages audiences and readers. As an instructor for English composition at the college level, I have a proven record for providing student success along with the highest performance evaluations for teaching before a classroom.
My teaching experience includes grammar, essay writing, logic, rhetoric, pronunciation, and fluency. Furthermore, I have instructed classroom and one-on-one sessions regarding information literacy, research, and various citation styles, including assisting with the preparation of master theses and PhD dissertations. With over a decade of assisting students for college entry testing, as well as serving as an online advocate and tutor for business, criminal justice, and history, my passion is ensuring students enhance their quality of communication and learning skills.

I began tutoring professionally after entering college, spending one year as a language tutor for Emory University, then pursuing private tutoring. I have worked with students of all ages, from preschool to middle-aged, and in a variety of subjects. I have aided students in preparing for various standardized tests (from the ISEE to the ACT), school subjects, and languages. My students achieve high grades in their school subjects and do very well on standardized tests.
I possess a wealth of knowledge in various areas, but one of the things that I find fun about learning is seeing how subjects connect to the real world. My students find learning and their subject matters a lot more interesting when I start pointing out these connections to them. By nature, I am a very personable and patient and I can work with any kind of student. As such, students really enjoy tutoring sessions with me.

Hi, I’m Chloe! I have been tutoring for four years now and it is something I am truly passionate about. I enjoy learning about my students just as much as I enjoy helping them succeed. It is important for me to learn how to adapt to the student’s personal learning style so that I can better serve them as we progress together. I do not usually take the traditional testing approach when gauging where a student is with the material they are trying to either learn or brush up on. However, I like to have my students apply the knowledge they’ve learned by completing diagrams and projects, participating in academic conversations, and teaching the information back to me. I find that when one is able to teach an idea, they’ve really understood the idea. I always encourage my students to figure out different ways of understanding an idea because it challenges the student to think critically and analyze fully what they are learning. I also tend to relate the material to the students hobbies or favorites because I find that it really grabs the student’s attention. I would consider myself a great tutor because when I tutor, it’s not just a lecture, it is an experience. Every session I conduct is different because I understand that every student has different needs and they learn at different paces. Student success and growth is of the most importance to me and my adaptability certainly helps me aid students become successful.
