Tight binding is the term solid state physicists use to call what chemists call LCAO method. In the case of graphene, if they only consider the pz, this is equivalent to the Hueckel method, or, if some correlation is taken into account, the Pariser Parr Pople method (PPP), which they tend to call the Hubbard model.
