(FIU) Florida International University (Spanish and Philosop)
Hello! I am Rafael R. and I'm currently an undergraduate student at FIU. I was 11 years old when I moved to the United States with my parents, but I never forgot my tongue of origin. I continued to take Spanish classes all throughout middle school and high school, ultimately majoring in Spanish at FIU. Soccer is my favorite sport!
When it comes to Spanish tutoring, I believe everyone should have a chance to learn another language to expand their understanding and social relations.
Being fluent in two languages is very important at this place in time, especially in Miami, where more than 80% of the population are Spanish speakers. Spanish is not only needed to be able to communicate in Miami, but also if you want to have more employment opportunities. It is crucial to know this language because it allows you to broaden your social life to people from Spanish speaking nations. This is why I want to be a Spanish tutor. I want to help others learn Spanish to offer them the chance to meet new people and have more opportunities.
I have had a unique passion for the Spanish language ever since I started the first grade. This has led me to include Spanish as one of my majors in college and to recently be the teacher of a class offered at the Coral Gables Public Library. I am very understanding and open to suggestions from my students to better understand how they learn the best, and modified my lessons according to their Spanish level.
Well, this is me! I hope you guys give me a chance to show you my knowledge about Spanish and share it with you. Hello! I am Rafael R. and I'm currently an undergraduate student at FIU.

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.
I am qualified to teach Spanish because not only has Spanish been the language I've studied the most, but it is also my tongue of origin. I have also taught a 12-week class at a Public Library, which greatly improved my teaching skills. Spanish is also one of my majors at FIU, which has led me to take all sorts of Spanish classes all the way from grammar to literature and I believe this is something that adds more information to the answer of why I'm qualified to teach this subject.
