I'm Felicia. I am a recent CELTA graduate who is currently waiting for certification from Cambridge to be an adult ESL instructor. I have taught adults from the ages of 18 to 60 with my ESL training from pre-intermediate to upper intermediate with an overall reading, writing, speaking and grammar focus tailored to a students needs, strengths, and weaknesses. I believe in a student centered approach to teaching in order to give the students the understanding of why. My job is to get students thinking and reasoning for themselves and through a structured guided discovery plan I can get them to retain what has been taught. As a tutor if I just give students the answers without having them understand why and not getting them to retain the information then I haven't done my job.
I have a BFA Fine Arts from Brooklyn College and have shown and worked in galleries throughout New York City. I have worked with students from the ages of 12 to 25 to help them work on high school, art school, and college entrance portfolios as well as help them discover, develop and explore their own personal style as an artist and stick to a practice schedule.
