About Rafael

Since leaving Cuba late in 1961, I have lived in a number of Spanish speaking countries, Spain, Mexico and Puerto Rico, where my job, working for a Rochester-based pharmaceutical company, has taken me and my family. For a few years I had also tutored students interested in improving their grammatical skills as well as business men and women, wishing to become more fluent in conversational Spanish.

I put emphasis on correct pronunciation of the language and in the proper conjugation of regular, irregular and auxiliary verbs; also, the proper use of adjectives, adverbs, pronouns and the various modes. A great deal of emphasis is also placed on expanding vocabulary through compositions. Homework is very much a part of the ongoing learning technique. Home exams are also a part of the process as a conduit to get parental involvement.

During my tenure as a business professional in the pharmaceutical industry, I was involved in not only demonstrating proper utilization of selling and marketing skills, but was very much involved in TRAINING (product knowledge). I have visited most Spanish countries where the training had to be conducted in the language of the host country.

Learning is easier if it's challenging!

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.

Spanish

Spanish is my first language and I would like to teach/tutor students on the proper use of the language grammatical rules, pronunciation and gradually expose them to the language extensive vocabulary. Student's time permitting, they will be challenged with homework, conversational (questions and answers) exercises, as well as written compositions.
