About this tutor

Have you ever wanted to learn French but felt like you couldn't learn a new language?Maybe you were intimidated by immersion classes, or were unable to find an affordable private option? 


I am here to tell you that you can learn French and do it for a great price!


Why choose Lessons by Alex?


Everybody has their own reasons for studying a language their own particular way of learning. Instead of using a one-size-fits-all approach to instruction, I design an individualized curriculum for each student based on their interests and language goals. In addition to custom designing lessons, I also genuinely love teaching French and I have ever since middle school when I first started helping classmates with homework. It gives me joy to share my passions for the French language and for francophone culture throughout the world.


Who am I and why should I be your teacher?


My name is Alex and I am a heritage French speaker and teacher with over ten years of teaching experience. My family is from Louisiana, where French is one of the official languages and taught in public schools. As such, French has always been present in my life and that instilled in me a life long passion for the language.


I have taught all ages from preschool-aged children to adult learners. I have taught French at the University of Missouri, at Montgomery College, at a French immersion preschool, and in various elementary schools in the Seattle region. I have a BA in French and International Studies and an MA in French Language Teaching, as well as a true passion for sharing the French language.


How much is it and how does this work?


I offer individual and group French lessons both online and in-person, so that means that even if we don't live close we can still work together! Reach out or check out my website for more information.

    Alex was so fast and professional when he built me my own language course. He customized the curriculum to fit my video game interests for only a little bit extra! He was also very flexible in scheduling.

  • Melanie B.

    Alex Titus is an excellent teacher who tutored my daughter in French. He used hands on projects, cultural activities, and interesting topics to immerse my daughter in French language and culture. Alex is enthusiastic, highly knowledgeable, and always dependable. He loves teaching and my daughter enjoyed learning from him.
