I had all my course work complete when I ran into a huge brick wall, which was writing my thesis to complete my program.  I new what I wanted to do and what I wanted to write about but I didn’t know where to start.  The task was daunting and humongous and even when I tried to start writing I couldn’t get very far.  I didn’t have much tome left and I knew I needed to do something.  When I did quick Internet search I came across the dissertation coach website and gave them a call.  They got back to me right away and I was able to get into contact with a coach named Rebecca within the next few days.  I can honestly say that if it were not for Rebecca’s help I would have not finished my thesis in a timely manor.  I suspect that it would have taken me at least another semester or year if not longer to complete my thesis on my own.  It was very helpful to have daily feedback from someone that was on your side and for someone that wanted you to complete the task as hand just as much as you did.  Rebecca gave me multiple writing tips and techniques to help get me started and to help keep me going once I was on a role.  She helped me to get rid of my fears of the enormous project and take it one step as a time.  She helped me put a weekly plan in place and I looked forward to seeing her comments and speaking with her every day and week.  She understood the difficulties I was having and helped me to get through them.  She also did a great job at lifting my spirits and helping me to look at things from a different perspective that didn’t cause unnecessary stress and anxiety.  Without my thesis coach Rebecca I am sure I would still be writing my thesis today and I will be forever grateful for her help and dedication because without I would not have my two masters degrees today.
