About Michel

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.

Since then, I have been teaching Arabic and French, hence my long experience in teaching both those languages. I have been tutoring French and Arabic at Inlingua, Tampa since 2006. And since 2010 I teach officially French at Pinellas County Schools.

I served as a private Arabic tutor for a series of professionals in fields from law enforcement, federal agencies, marines and cryptography. I have worked as a French tutor for other professionals in fields from medicine, law, real estate, banking, insurance, and business, as well as individuals from the private sector, and especially adolescents seeking to improve their public school grades.

My various teaching methods have earned me a reputation of a conscientious, hard working individual who uses my initiative and logical good sense to juggle the demands of my different students, with regard to scheduling, program changes, curriculum needs, and social interaction, bonding with my students to the degree that they have all renewed their training contracts in order to continue learning with me.

I strive to always improve my image of a gentleman, respectful in my interactions with students, courteous, patient, caring, giving, with an infectious enthusiasm that brings the laziest student to my class session with all assignments completed.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Arabic

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.

French

French is my native language, and as a matter of fact I am a French Law graduate. In Tampa I tutored more than 30 students at a well-known international language school before I became a Florida Certified French teacher and hired as full-time teacher in Pinellas County Schools.

Kind, educated and patient — Michel is a true gem. His knowledge as a teacher, plus his native understanding of the French language has accelerated and deepened my understanding and pronunciation of the current curriculum in class. He has helped me integrate the knowledge I lost (it has been 7 years since my last French course) while helping me with my homework. It is a daunting task and I am grateful for his help. ...
