Bio

One of the Top 10% Tutors on Wyzant for 2019!

I've had many opportunities to teach and tutor during my career and I still get excited and love when I see the "light bulb" come on in the eyes of my students. There is no better feeling than being able to help someone reach a new understanding of something that, at first, seems so difficult to grasp...I believe you can achieve what you set your mind and heart to achieve...sometimes, it is more heart than mind. I can help you get there!

One of the Top 10% Tutors on Wyzant for 2019!

I've had many opportunities to teach and tutor during my career and I still get excited and love when I see the "light bulb" come on in the eyes of my students. There is no better feeling than being able to help someone reach a new understanding of something that, at first, seems so difficult to grasp...I believe you can achieve what you set your mind and heart to achieve...sometimes, it is more heart than mind. I can help you get there!

During my enlistment in the US Air Force, I became an electronics technician and Instructor.
I taught both basic and advanced electronics, to include the technical math and physics necessary to understand the concepts being presented. Later, as an Air Force Officer, I received an Electrical Engineering degree from the University of Maryland. Ever since, I have been involved with training or tutoring in diverse fields to include: Math, Physics, Electrical Engineering, and Spanish!

I also have experience in linear, integer, and quadratic programming with LINDO.

I have a Masters of Science in Information Security Systems Management from Colorado Technical University. I've trained many of my company employees and customers in the area of Information Technology and Security.

When I was younger I moved to Spain to attend school in Salamanca and Madrid. I've traveled to many places in Spain and have been introduced to the many faces and cultures that make up the country. I now reside in Baldwin County, Alabama, and I'm looking forward to helping you master what has become my native language, Spanish. I have tutored students both in Spanish language and literature. I look forward to working together to master your subject of interest!

I'm also a member of the National Tutoring Association (NTA) from which I have received Tutor training, testing, and Certification.

Test Taking Tricks

I seriously hate math but I need it to further my career. Milton was able to teach me some geometry tricks that have helped me when I’m practicing on my own. I appreciate him.

Jenny, 1 lesson with Milton Rafael

Great Math tutor!

This is last time my daughter will take the ACT and math is her lowest score. Mr. Rafael sent her a practice test the night before and they met to go over the ones she missed and he explained in detail and helped her confidence going into testing. Exactly what she needed!!

Jen, 1 lesson with Milton Rafael

Great teacher

Great teacher with a great understanding of the material. He has solid lessons with a structured format to help learning a subject.

Jake, 3 lessons with Milton Rafael

2nd tutor session

Mr. Rafeal is helping my daughter get ready to take her ASVAB testing and only 2 sessions in, I am seeing great improvement in confidence! My daughter says, Mr. Rafeal is patient and thorough in her lessons. He teaches in an easy and simple way to understand. He takes his time and teaches her techniques that are vital for the ASVAB test. She feels very comfortable with him and we love that he is a USAF veteran!

Eden, 19 lessons with Milton Rafael

Amazing AFOQT Tutor

He helps to explain everything well and goes over everything you do along with showing you ways to do them better or faster. He also is very open and adjusts to you so if you like a more serious or slow pace he will accommodate to you for your tutoring needs!

Kenneth, 8 lessons with Milton Rafael

Excellent tutor for ASVAB

Mr. Rafael is amazing and so very patient with my daughter. He is tutoring my daughter for the ASVAB for the Marines. He is very knowledgeable and is able to help with any questions she may have.

Angela, 11 lessons with Milton Rafael

Highly knowledgeable, patient and upbeat

After being out of college for eight years, Milton was quick to tailor my math lessons to refresh me on topics and reinforce/ build upon my weaknesses and deficiencies. He has excellent resources to help me study for my upcoming AFOQT. He is patient and has multiple approaches to solving problems if you just don't get it a certain way. Milton consistently is on time for lessons, prepared to answer any and all questions and will take extra time to break concepts and ideas down further to help reinforce the learning process. I highly recommend Milton to anyone who is in need!

Logan, 11 lessons with Milton Rafael

First session with tutor

Taught me a lot of great tips and tricks to make math easier and faster. I understood his concepts and the examples were nice and clear. The formatting for the instruction through the virtual classroom was great, it allowed for us to simultaneously write on the board and work together to figure things out. Great session!
