About Rafael

My passion for psychology and education have always led me to get involved in learning, improving myself and supporting others, whether through teaching, couching or counseling. I have taught at different institutions ESL, ELT, philosophy and psychology, including middle and high school, private institutes and at the university level too. On a regular basis I support young people and their families, as adults around educational, learning and vocations challenges and problems, and being a professional in the psychology filed allows me to better understand and support my clients' educational/academic needs and expectations.

If you need support for learning and performing academically, and are willing to learn or have difficulties in your learning process, please feel sure that I'll do my best to support you or your child in order to get the best possible results, based on sound understanding of the subject and effective teaching and tutoring methods, including people presenting common learning difficulties, to those with special needs or challenges due to other situational stressors.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Special Needs

Around 1995 when I started to work as an associate psychologist at different community and non-profit health clinics, I was able to get a firsthand experience on learning from, understanding and supporting people presenting special needs due to different forms of physical and/or mental disabilities and challenges, who require much more empathy, patience, understanding and competence in order to rehabilitate or develop life, coping and social skills, as well as learning abilities leading to basic education, vocational training, or social inclusion.

Then in my private practice and through several opportunities to work with children in different continents, I found myself involved in supporting young people who suffered discrimination, neglect and abuse related to lack of inclusion and stereotypes at schools as well as at other social settings in their communities. It was from these experiences, more specifically from advocating for children with anxiety disorders and for their families, that I identified myself and felt compelled to continue supporting people presenting these tough challenges, as a way meet the needs and expectations of people facing these difficulties faced at the individual, family and community/social levels.

While my clinical and psychotherapeutic practice has not been exclusively focused on this or any other condition, I have learned so much from supporting many people facing the challenges and difficulties special needs present, and have strongly identified my professional role to their needs and expectations.

I have a BS, MA and MS all in Psychology and Counseling, my last degree included Holistic Studies and Transpersonal/Integral Psychology, and I am currently working on a doctorate degree in clinical psychology.

Excellent Spanish Tutor

Rafael was a big help in preparing my son for his Spanish Exam. My HS son was reluctant to meet with a tutor but really felt comfortable with Rafael and he says it helped him prepare for his test.
