Hello! I’m Felicia. I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish, and enjoy sharing my love of Spanish with others! While in college, I spent a year living and studying in Ecuador, and had the opportunity to travel all over South America. I attended university classes which were all in Spanish, and lived with a family who did not speak English. Between living, studying and traveling abroad, I had the opportunity to learn Spanish at a deeper level. I bring my love for Latin American cultures as well as a thorough understanding of the language to my work as a tutor. I have a firm understanding of grammar and syntax, and am able to adapt my lessons on-the-spot to meet the unique needs and learning style of each student.
After college I taught English as a Second Language in a community center. It was there that I discovered my ability to adapt lessons, create new and innovative materials, and find creative ways to teach. As a Spanish tutor now, I focus on High School Spanish, College Spanish, and Spanish for adults. However, I have worked with young children and middle school students as well. I create lesson plans for each person using wide a variety of materials, including a curriculum for adults that I have personally developed. I am always thorough and ensure that you understand a concept before moving on to the next.
I am patient and perceptive, and take an individualized approach to teaching. I go above and beyond for all my students! This includes creating practice materials just for you, if needed. My ability to personalize lessons is one of the many things that make me an excellent Spanish tutor, and set me apart from others. I have hundreds of informational materials and practice exercises on-hand which I am happy to share.
Student success is a top priority for me, and I would love to talk about how to meet your (or your child’s) needs. I am easy to reach, quick to respond and flexible with scheduling. I am also happy to consult with teachers and provide feedback to paren

Knowledgeable and prepared tutor.
Felicia had prepared materials that were tailored to my needs and was able to adjust to my level of Spanish immediately. She answered my questions about grammar on personal pronouns and identified my gaps of knowledge with verb tenses. She's great, and I trust she will help me learn a lot quickly.Holly, 15 lessons with Felicia
Personable and attentive
Felicia used pictures as prompts to explore the areas of vocabulary and grammar I knew best and to identify where I needed to grow. The whole time, she frequently checked to see if her style of teaching was accommodating my learning goals and sought my input for how we should continue. She was very friendly and ready to explore many different topics and areas.Eric, 1 lesson with Felicia

Very patient teacher, extremely helpful
Felicia helped me with Spanish 3. She was very patient with me as she helped me understand the subjunctive, and answered all my questions as I asked. She helped me work on my speaking skills, and also made sure to correct me when I was wrong and explained why. She was a huge help, and I feel that I have a better understanding after our lesson.Mehrnoush, 11 lessons with Felicia
My daughter loved her class!
Felicia was the first tutor we’ve had and this was my 9th grader’s very first class with her forSpanish-3 to help her with a conversation test the next day. She loved the session, and appreciated how the teacher found exactly where she needed help with and taught her how to prepare for the test. My Dsughter felt very confident about taking the test after her class. Will definitely go back to her if my daughter needs help again.Pradeepa, 1 lesson with Felicia
Great personalized lessons well prepared!
I told Felicia that I had taken Spanish 20 years ago but wanted to become fluent. She was so good that she came up with a personalized lesson for me on the spot! I learned so much during that lesson that I’m sure that with her help, I can achieve my goal!Alison, 11 lessons with Felicia

Thanks so much for your help with our difficult student. Hopefully today was better with the camera, keep me posted. We are hoping to work with you often. I'll try to let you know what we have daily. If the times work for you that would be great. If you have something else going on that is okay as well.Liz, 65 lessons with Felicia
