The remark Graham's teacher makes according to Graham himself shows some lack of respect for his pupil which, as Clark correctly states, he should of taught better. Lack of respect in my book is an ego problem.
The teacher's statement to Graham was the teaching. By Graham's own assessment, that teaching was well received. That is the mark of skillful teaching.
