When I first began writing my proposal I was encountering many problems such as sentence structure; sentence flow; and the overall content of my proposal. There were many times when I was just going to give up on the dissertation. I remember being one computer “click” away from dropping out of the doctoral program. But I didn’t give up. I knew that I needed “expert” help in the completion of my dissertation so I searched the web for dissertation “experts” and came upon The Dissertation Coach and Alison matched me with an amazing consultant who was was instrumental in helping me restructure my proposal. After many revisions based on my consultant’s feedback, my proposal was finally complete. Then I e-mailed my proposal to my mentor. After a few days, I received feedback from my mentor and in capital letters she wrote “WOW! this proposal is fantastic.” I know that I wouldn’t have gotten this far if it hadn’t been for The Dissertation Coach . Right now, I am beginning the data collection phase of my dissertation and look forward to continuing my relationship with The Dissertation Coach.
