About Felicia

I am a scientist and an educator, passionate about helping students achieve their highest potentials. I do not just help students with content knowledge, but also show them ways to learn and help them aspire to higher goals. Many of my students bond with me as friends.

While I was working actively in research projects with NASA and at MIT, I started helping students find their interests and good matches with colleges. I am also on the Education Council at MIT, being involved with applicants' intake interviews. I can teach all math subjects and all science subjects, as I was trained in both the biological sciences and the physical sciences. My time table is more flexible now, and I would like to work with students who are thinking of applying for admissions to universities.

I have over 15 years of tutoring experience, both here in the US and overseas. Being trained as a scientist and an engineering, and having studied and worked at MIT, I have much insight into the learning of mathematics and the joy of mathematics. I am also an exceptional tutor in all the sciences, since I was not only a research scientist, I was also the creative director of many K-12 interactive programs produced on educational channels, and in collaboration with NASA's Education and Outreach Division.

You are welcome to contact me through email to further explore possibilities.

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.

Chinese

I have been the principal of a Chinese school in Boston, and in Newton before that. I have been intimately involved in curriculum and program design for both schools. I was also an active member of the AP Chinese curriculum team for several international schools in Hong Kong.

I have also been tutoring Chinese as a Second Language, and in the last several years, all of my students taking the Subject Test in Chinese Language scored at least 750 out of the possible 800.
