face à versus en face de -- Quelle est la difference?

My french teacher only speaks in French.  She was trying to explain the difference between "face à" and "en face de"  but the nuance was lost on me.  Can someone explain in English?  Merci!

This question relates to:
French lesson "À côté de, en face de, à l'extérieur de, à l'intérieur de, près de, loin de, au coin de (prepositions)"
