ABOUT OUR WORKSHOPS

Dissertation Coach, Dissertation Consultant

Our dissertation workshops give you one-on-one access to an experienced dissertation coach. Each week you will meet with your dissertation coach via Zoom and receive personalized guidance and feedback on your writing. We offer morning, evening, and weekend hours in addition to regular business hours. We know that writing your dissertation can be lonely and isolating. Our workshops are structured like an online course, complete with assignments and weekly meetings to provide the same structure and accountability as your doctoral coursework. We believe that we do our best writing when we write frequently. To build writing momentum, we break down each chapter into smaller sections to make the writing process clearer and more straightforward. The time you will need to commit to writing each week will vary depending on the workshop’s goals. More information on the approximate time commitment for each workshop is provided below.
