Ecole Centrale des Arts et Metiers (ElectroMech Engineer)
Foreign languages are my passion and I share it with my students. I am a French and Arabic native as I grew up learning both languages simultaneously. I graduated with a master's degree in Science from "Ecole Centrale des Arts et Metiers" in Brussels. Having lived and worked in several European countries, I was also exposed to German and Greek.
At UCSD, I have taught French Conversation Classes to beginners, where 100% French was spoken, No English allowed. In Arabic, I have successfully tutored using "Al Kitaab program" from Georgetown University Press and "Alif Baa" Introduction to Arabic letters and sounds, for beginners. I can help you too, with conversation, grammar, homework, literature, etc.
I believe in motivation and will power. In French, we say "Qui veut, peut"; When there is a will, there is a way. Let's do it. Foreign languages are my passion and I share it with my students.

Roger has been my tutor for over a month, and he has helped me tremendously improve my French speaking skills. He is always punctual and prepared with diverse methods to learning the French language. I recommend Roger with absolutely no hesitation, he is highly intelligent, professional, and talented.
Roger is truly an amazing tutor. He greets his students with a welcoming, warm smile that sets a nice tone for studying. My twin 11-year-old daughters enjoy their lessons with Roger and say that the time goes by very quickly. This means a lot for parents who have their children taking after school lessons, such as a foreign language, as it generally does not share the same enthusiasm that children have towards after school sports or dance. Aside from my daughters being happy to take Arabic lessons, I see that they have improved in their writing, reading, and speaking ability. Thank you, Roger, for being their tutor!
Roger was great! My first impression was he is a good, patient, and kind person. I know he will probably put me to the challenge! I'm excited to continue with the lessons.
Let's be honest, learning a new language is a bit embarrassing. The prospect of having to make new sounds and pronounce foreign words can make anyone anxious, not to mention having to do it in front of a native speaker like Roger! But I decided to try him anyway - and I am so glad that I did. After our first lesson, Roger's genuine passion for teaching along with his great sense of humor alleviated my own insecurities. He made me feel at ease. His gentle manner and patience have since helped me focus on learning and not on my own shortcomings as a novice. That has made all the difference in the world.
The material that he uses has been screened and tested by him for years but it's far from generic. He adapts the material to one's individual skill level and time constraints. He also varies his teachings with supplemental texts and activities. I have had a fantastic time with Roger. It's been an honest pleasure. Overall, I just have to commend him for creating such a trusting environment where I am free to take risks in my own learning. So if you're looking for someone who truly invests in YOU and your learning, someone who is dynamic, kind, and engaging - look no further. My biggest mistake was not finding Roger sooner!
Roger is a very good tutor. He arrives promptly and is always energetic in his approach to teaching French. He brings extra materials that make learning French enjoyable. I would recommend him as a tutor.
Roger is tutoring my parents and myself and is so patient (and fun) in trying to teach three old dogs new tricks!
Roger is a well-qualified, native, French tutor who has tremendous energy. He makes the time fly. He is innovative, bringing french songs to the lesson. He is accommodating in his schedule.
I took Arabic classes with Roger and am very happy/proud of the progress I have made thanks to him! He is a very joyful person and classes are always lively and fly by. He was very accommodating when I needed to reschedule. Also, Roger is Lebanese and he mentioned interesting cultural aspects linked to the language that a book or non-native speaker may not provide.
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.
