Alex De Foe

Management Team

Psychological Science & Writing Skills Tutor

Hi, my name is Alex - I manage the technical side of Academy Plus Education, I am also involved with interviewing and selecting new tutors for our database, and am Editor of the Academy Plus Blog. As part of this editorial role, I encourage our tutors to participate on the website and build an effective tutoring portfolio online.

Aside from these roles at Academy Plus, I also offer a limited number of hours of private tutoring and writing services.

Tutoring Services:

- Psychological science
- Social work
- Counselling
- Human services
- Other related fields of specialisation

I have a particular interest in writing and research skills pertaining to these fields, but I also assist students who have struggled with grasping particular theoretical concepts in their learning process. I can also assist with developing practical and industry-relevant skills (within an academic framework).

Teaching Experience:

I have had over 3 years of experience as a lecturer / Teaching Associate at Monash University in the area of psychological science.

I have also been employed as a teaching staff member as part of a University foundation program. As part of that role I worked with students to develop their scientific writing skills, logical reasoning, critical thinking and overall academic confidence - thus, I am available to assist students who are striving to develop overall writing, reading and academic study skills, whether that be at VCE, undergraduate or graduate level.

I'm looking forward to working with you!


I'm available 4.00PM - 8.00PM on Tuesdays in Berwick. Online help also available.
