my expertise is in Forensic Psychology, but I have written a thesis several times for my qualifications - MSc Psychology, MA Police Studies and MSc Criminal Psychology. I also used to lead the research meetings for the Prison Service here in England, assessing research proposals submitted on the grounds of ethics and usefulness to the Service. I have helped several student placements with thier thesis along the way.
However, you would need to make a judgment as to whether my lack of knowledge in Australia and the Aboriginal children would influence my ability to assist you. you would have to accept that anything you didn't tell me, I wouldn't know. Would that be a problem? If you feel you need someone more local, please do not feel bad by saying no to me - your thesis is the most important thing here. On the other hand, as I have no experience in this, I am totally unbiased and my view would be impartial.
I could spend all of Friday 1st reviewing your work and sending comments back. I am on Paypal so you could pay me half of the fee for my time before I sent the work back by email at a rate of $30 per hour, max 10 hours, and the other half of the fee afterwards when you have seen my work - would that be suitable for you? Please let me know. Then the sooner you can send it, the better. I cannot imagine that I would max out at 10 hours, but I suppose its possible. I know I certainly won't string it out for you. I guess there are limits to the changes you can make at this late stage - but I will do my best and you can take what you want from it.
Please let me know your thoughts, Best Wishes, Sarah
