About Rafael

I have nearly 20 years of experience tutoring students. I grew up in MN, went to college in CA, then returned to MN for business school and law school. I have had careers at Target Corp (real estate department), at an international K-12 English immersion school, and now at Thomson Reuters working on an online tool for transactional lawyers. I love to learn and it's fun for me to grow that love of learning in others.

I have experience as a tutor and teacher's assistant for Introductory Micro and Macro Economics classes at the college and high school level. I helped students prepare for their final exams and work on daily homework. I explained complex concepts from the textbook by using real life examples. I received the highest grade in my Economics course in my MBA cohort. I have experience teaching 9-12 grade social studies and religion/bible courses. I have a good understanding of AP European History and AP US Government and Politics topics.

I enjoy tutoring for for Financial Accounting and general management classes too. In the past, I worked with students on career planning, college admissions and ACT/SAT test prep. I like to help students with general test taking strategies and skills and with the English and Reading sections of standardized tests. I do NOT tutor for the math sections of ACT and SAT exams.

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.

Bible Studies

I spent four years as the 9-12 grade religions teacher at the Inter American School in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. I studied the Old and New Testaments of the bible in college. I developed chapter reviews, quizzes, and exams for the church history course based on the book, Church History in Plain Language by Bruce L. Shelley. I recruited guest speakers to share with my world religions class regarding their how they practiced their faiths and used the textbook, Living Religions by Mary Pat Fisher.
