Thank him for his offer but politely decline.

Although offering freelance services to do WordPress theme work is perfectly
acceptable, as a theme reviewer and as you have already pointed out, it
could put yourself in a very negative light.

If for whatever reason you had previously worked for this same person, I
would also expect you to advise the team of your connection and excuse
yourself from reviewing any of their themes for the same reasons you

Also, suggest the author look to the WordPress support forums or the
WordPress Jobs board.
