Originally I questioned using a service to help me with my dissertation. I explored several services prior to engaging The Dissertation Coach. Several other companies offered to provide me a quote on receiving the data without any further conversation. The Dissertation Coach was only willing to provide a quote based on learning more details about my work and talking directly with me. What made me move forward with The Dissertation Coach was the fact that the first statistician Dr. Miller matched me too was honest and told me that he did not feel he had the right expertise to assist me. Dr. Miller then matched me to Dr. Christopher Bradley who did have the experience and skills to assist me. After this experience, I felt confident that this service would not take on clients that it could not realistically help.
My committee was aware that I had engaged a statistician and mathematical editor. My challenge was in the area of statistics and I needed to have a editor to check for accuracy. Dr. Bradley ensured that I had written and conducted the data analysis correctly. He reviewed my methodology and results chapters for accuracy as well as making recommendations on my writing. In addition, my conversations with Dr. Bradley helped me effectively evaluate my own work and prepare for the defense. I definitely feel that the service augmented the committee’s support and speed up the entire process and gave me additional confidence at the defense.
