I'm a UniMelb student studying Business.

Average mark


Started uni
I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student and an active academic researcher. I have an MBA in Finance, an MS in Mathematical Finance, and an MS in Business Administration.

I am an avid writer of both academic and non-academic work, including content editing for journal articles, dissertations, and undergrad/grad/Ph.D. papers. Also, I review top-tier academic manuscripts during the publication process--Academy of Management Journal, Strategic Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, and a few Economics/Finance journals.

I write GRE, GMAT, and SAT questions for large test-prep companies, as well as tutor students individually. I scored in the 96th percentile on the GMAT verbal section and the 99th percentile on the GRE verbal section, as well as a perfect writing score on both exams.

I have 10 years of experience in editing college essays and letters of intent for students applying to undergraduate, graduate, and Ph.D. programs. I am the student delegate to the graduate school's admissions committee.

Additionally, I have provided consulting services for entrepreneurs and small-business owners, such as strategic business planning (including writing plans for funding), quality management initiatives, and M&A due diligence.

My rate starts at $40/hour, but the final rate depends on the scope of the project and will be communicated upfront in the proposal. I will always send honest proposals with a rate that does not change during the project. I think it is important to be transparent and sincere when engaging with clients.

University syllabus I have taught over the years : Unimelb, RMIT, Monash Uni, Swinburne, ANU,ACU, Bond University,UNSW, La Trobe University, University of South Australia and Southern Cross University.



I first reached out to shem when I was struggling to understand the concepts for ACCT2542. He is very friendly, clear in his explanations and didn't hesitate to help out even when outside of tutor contact hours. He ensured I thoroughly understood the content. I would suggest reaching out to him if you need help with anything and wish him all the best for her future endeavours.
Very patient. Explains all concepts in clear manner and efficient teaching style. Would highly recommend!

Shem is an amazing tutor! Before contacting him I was very lost on how to do the work for my subjects. He is a very nice person and tries to be as flexible as possible with his time to suit your schedule. Highly recommend people contact him if anyone is struggling on business related subjects. He will help you overcome any difficulties you are having.
Thank you so much! It was a pleasure working with you for two semesters.

I recommend Shem with no hesitation whatsoever. Literally one of the best tutors if not the best i've worked with. He is terrific to work with, easy to talk to, and super efficient in every single session. Shem helped me with Micro 1 (74), and currently Macro 1. Given my full time working commitments I am extremely time poor however I still managed to achieve just under distinction working with him.

If you're in a similar situation to me regarding working and studying full-time, get in contact with him!

Shem is the perfect and highly experienced tutor when it comes to economics. I would highly recommend Shem!! He's a great tutor - I have general maths knowledge from high school, so after 2 weeks they had summed up my knowledge and everything from then on was new. Shem was very good at putting it in words I understand as well as representing it visually to help with consolidation. He's very patient and stopped me from freaking out and getting too overwhelmed on a number of occasions. He's an easy going guy who you can tell really wants you to learn! He's very experienced in mathematics so he's also got a lot of helpful tips e.g. specifically how to study and how to write notes for maths and the cheat sheet. I would definitely go to him again if needed and recommend him to others!

Shem was a life saver!!! He tutored me for FINS3616: International Business Finance T2 2020 and got me on track to get one of the best grades that I've gotten in uni! I fell asleep for the better half of the semester and I knew that I needed some help if I was going to pass the final. I found him and instantly he began put me on the right track. He told me what to focus on and gave me plenty of relevant practice questions. Being able talk with him through questions helped me conceptualize a lot of the abstract financial ideas the course sends at you. Wouldn't been able to get the course done without his help, 10/10 tutor. This is the best tutor we have around

Shem was a great tutor! If you are looking for a tutor for ECON2032 I highly recommend him to become your tutor for this unit. I was just on the brink of passing on this unit but when I started lessons with Shem. He taught me the concepts and principles in an easy to understand structured way, also giving tips and tricks on how to work out solutions that is isn't in any lectures or note. Highly recommend this tutor for this unit!

Shem is a great tutor who has been guiding me through my assignments close to 6 months now. The guy is well conversant with every subject that he decides to take. Having him as my tutor for banking and accounting subjects since the start of this year has deepen and broaden my accounting knowledge. He has given me tips on how to succeed exams and to obtain good results. I would recommend you to contact hIM as she clearly demonstrates hIS understanding in assisting you for exams, midsems, assignments and other assessments.
