My experience working with Jim (Dr. Jim McGinley) was extremely positive. He was highly responsive, flexible, and incredibly knowledgeable. Jim helped me take my project from theory to application and was extremely patient with my questions. He explained statistics in a way that was easy to understand and clarified several years of doctoral training. Jim took the time to teach me challenging concepts, often more than once, and ensured that I felt comfortable with the material in theory and application (which is what I requested). Working with Jim was by far the easiest part of completing my project, and he not only helped me feel confident with my data plan and analyses but was a pleasure to work with and was actually interested in my wellbeing and personal progress. Before working with Jim, completing my dissertation felt impossible, but he helped me to produce a final product that I was proud to defend. I highly recommend working with Jim and The Dissertation Coach team
