Dissertation Coaching

Dissertation Coaching
Did you know that between 40 and 50% of doctoral students never finish their degrees? Why is that?

The variety of reasons is staggering, from not having sufficient institutional support to having other areas of life conflict with the dissertation-writing process.

Why You Need a Dissertation Coach
What I’ve found in my years of experience working with doctoral students as a both a chair and a dissertation coach is that dissertation writing should not be a solitary process. Most of us need someone with whom we can talk things through; we need support; we need someone who can answer our questions. As a dissertation coach, this is just the beginning of what I can offer.

I’m here when you want to ask a question but feel you should already know the answer. When the task seems overwhelming, I can help you break down the tasks into manageable segments. And if you’re in need of moral support or a listening ear, I’m here to listen and cheer you on.

I have over thirty years of experience in academia. Having chaired over eighty dissertation committees, I know the ins and outs of the dissertation process. I know how hard writing a dissertation can be (I wrote one myself) and am familiar with the mistakes that are easy to make along the way (I made some of them myself).

Most of all, my greatest passion is supporting students in achieving their goals. I can help you finish your dissertation and achieve the dreams you had when you first started this journey.
