I have been tutoring French and Arabic in Tampa Bay area since 2005.
I grew up in a perfect bi-lingual environment and graduated in 1972 from Lyon university (Beirut Campus) with a double major degree: French and Lebanese Law.

I am not very fluent in English but I am definitely fluent in Arabic. That is because I was born in Lebanon, and Lebanon is an Arab country where Arabic is spoken. In other words, Arabic is my native language.
Besides going to school and then to college, ending up with a BA in Lebanese Law enhanced my proficiency in formal Arabic which differs in many aspects from Lebanese dialect.
