How Dissertation Coaching Works

Complimentary Consultation: We start with an in-depth consultation to understand your professional background, research goals, and the practical application of your study. This ensures a perfect match with a coach who not only has academic expertise but also appreciates the professional context of your research.


Personalized Guidance: Your dedicated coach will offer targeted guidance throughout your journey, helping you refine your research to address real-world challenges in your field, enhance your academic and professional writing skills, and develop research that resonates with both academic and professional audiences.


Alignment and Planning: Our experienced coaches will ensure alignment among your study aims, research questions, research design, and data analysis plan. They will also assist you in selecting, designing, and validating survey instruments, planning sampling strategies, developing statistical hypotheses, conducting power analyses, and analyzing and reporting qualitative and non-traditional data.


Virtual Coaching Sessions: All coaching sessions are conducted virtually, providing flexibility and convenience. Our confidential coaching environment encourages open and productive discussions, allowing you to address any challenges, seek clarification, and receive valuable insights from your coach.
