About Felicia

I majored in Spanish in college, which included a year in Ecuador. While there I lived with a family who did not speak English, and attended a university in the city of Quito where all of my classes were in Spanish. This provided me with an invaluable opportunity to learn Spanish at the level of a native speaker. Since college, I have learned first-hand that being bi-lingual sets one apart in searching for jobs and enhances professional opportunities within many industries. I am eager to help other students achieve similar outcomes by learning this valuable language.

I have several years of experience teaching English as a Second Language classes to high school students and adults alike. My students were all successful in their learning goals, and made significant improvements in their language skills. I am patient and perceptive to the individual learning style of each student. I recognize that everyone does not learn the same way, and I have a very individualized approach to teaching.

When appropriate, depending on a student's skill level, I can tutor entirely in Spanish. But regardless of the level a student is at, I have many creative strategies to use. Whether you're a beginner or in advanced Spanish, I am skilled at adapting my lessons to match your level. I am also flexible with scheduling available during the day, evening, and on weekends; and I am willing to tutor in-home or in a neutral place such as the public library. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you improve your Spanish language skills.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

I have a Bachelor's degree in Spanish and also spent a year living in Ecuador where I took university classes entirely in Spanish. As a result I am extremely fluent, and have a solid foundation in grammar and syntax. I also have recent experience teaching ESL classes, where all of my students showed significant progress with their learning goals- each at their own level. I enjoy working one-on-one with students, or in small groups, because lessons can be individualized to meet each student's needs. An important part of being a good teacher is recognizing that people learn in different ways, and I pride myself on being able to adapt my lessons to match different learning styles.
