About Rafael

Dear students:
I have the privilege to offer you my experience as an English or Spanish Instructor . I have taught English and General Sciences as well as Postgraduate Courses in schools and working centers in Spanish after graduating from High School and Engineering. I am computer proficient and have a flexible schedule. Above all, I have a genuine interest in helping you learn. I have tutored adult and young students from elementary to advanced levels with general and specialized vocabulary such as General Sciences, Engineering and Nursing.

The teaching method used in tutoring can vary according to each individual’s needs. Therefore it would be necessary to design a customized based curriculum according to your goals. I would be willing to use our first contact to make a first assessment and propose a program in order to reach them. Nevertheless, in general terms, the procedure during our classes could be the following example if you are in Beginners or Intermediate Levels: Classes would be based through direct interchanges one to one using object and action illustrations as well as by deductive learning and exercising the skills of reading and writing. Classes can be personal or Online via Skype. Our first contact could be via Skype where we could meet and discuss your current standing in the language and agree for a first program. If you are willing to do this, you are free to contact me through WyzAnt.
I would be very pleased to be of service to you,

Sincerely,
Rafael G.
