Roger Williams Univ. (English literature)
Seton Hall University (Master's)
Teaching experience: I have taught adults, middle and high school students, and children as young as 18 months. My teaching experience has been primarily with English as a second language, Japanese language, and middle school English language arts (ELA) and social studies. In particular, I have worked extensively with Japanese, Chinese, and Indian students.
Education: I have a BA in English Literature and a MA in International Relations/Asian Studies.
Teaching style: I love to integrate games into my lessons as often as possible, as long as they help my students to learn. More than anything, I'm concerned with providing my students with lessons that are tailored to their individual needs and learning styles. I love to get feedback from my students so that I can provide them with the most personally optimized lessons.

Felicia is a great teacher and person. She is very patient and understanding. And also, she is very flexible with her schedule. I highly recommend her to everyone.
Thank you, Kosei!
My daughter has taken Japanese lessons before, but Felicia is by far the best. She is patient, knowledgeable and always professional and on time.
Thanks so much for your feedback, Cyndie! I really appreciate it.
I thought Felicia would be a good fit for my daughter based on her profile. What distinguished her was her strong background in education. Whether teaching Japanese or English, the ability to communicate clearly is a must. I am amazed at how quickly my daughter is learning with a heavy emphasis on conversation. Felicia also uses web tools to support her lessons. I highly recommend Felicia and always appreciate her dependability and timeliness for lessons.
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.
