I am open to assisting you with understanding concepts in your assignment and studying for exams/quizzes, however I will not actually do your assignment/online quizzes and I definitely won't sit your exam, so please do not ask. Doing so will run the risk of me reporting you, as I do work for the university.

UTS, USyd, UNSW, Riverwood library and my place in Roselands.

Unfortunately I do not have the time to travel to WSU. You may find it better to travel to my place in Roselands if you live in western Sydney.

Alison is a phenomenal teacher. She has a reputation for turning weaknesses into great strengths. Driving her students to surpass all expectations and insecurities.

I was barely passing Intermediate Microeconomics when I contacted her. I was sitting at 25/35 before the final. With 65 marks to go, I was only aiming for 25, a content pass. I got 79.
