Terms and Conditions

    Professional Standards

  1. Students are encouraged to use YourStatsGuru as a source of expert advice and knowledge. Whilst every effort is undertaken to provide the best and most rigorous academically correct possible quality of service and advice, YourStatsGuru cannot be held liable for the differing standards or understanding of mathematics and statistics at various institutions or within various disciplines.
  2. YourStatsGuru takes no responsibility for the academic performance of any student.
  3. Under no circumstances will YourStatsGuru provide a guarantee about a student’s grades (or similar e.g. ATAR). No-one can legitimately guarantee a student’s performance, except the student themselves.
  4. YourStatsGuru values academic integrity as paramount. As such, no negotiations will be entered into regarding the completion of an assessed piece of work on behalf of a student. Plagiarism, the act of passing off someone else’s work as your own, will not be knowingly facilitated by YourStatsGuru. Students may certainly ask for assistance with assessed work, but assistance will be given in the form of instruction and guidance only.
  5. YourStatsGuru is not a replacement for institutional teaching. Students should not expect that YourStatsGuru can provide a replacement for secondary or tertiary classes (except by arrangement). Students are strongly encouraged to attend all their scheduled classes and to use the services of YourStatsGuru to supplement their institutional education.
