- About: Hello, my name is Rafael Amado Deras, born and raised in Guatemala. I have a B.A. in Communication, a MS in Political Sciences and a post grade on Investigative Journalism. ï¿½ Even though I didnï¿½t go to school for teaching, I love it! I started teaching when I was 18, as a volunteer at a YMCA in Guatemala. Since then, I have taught many different subjects and at many different levels. I was a university level teacher in my country teaching Mass Media technology. Iï¿½m a backpacker/hiker by nature, as well as a photographer who has done freelance work for the Los Angeles Times, Getty Images and National Geographic. ï¿½ I have taught Spanish in Los Angeles, Dallas and Austin, sometimes as a freelance teacher, sometimes as a volunteer. As a teacher, my main goal is that my students learn the best way possible in a relaxed, funny and comfortable environment. Iï¿½m definitely not satisfied until the student is satisfied.
