Coaching and Consultation
Imagine having at an experienced doctorate at your side to review your dissertation or guide you step-by-step through the entire development process. This is exactly what we at Dissertation Editor offer to our clients. We provide coaching, tutoring, and consultation services in two ways—in direct conversation, through our One-on-One Consultation service, and in written form, as part of a Line Editing or Heavy Editing order.
“The services provided were reasonably priced compared to their competitors. The staff and personnel you work with on your project all have their doctoral degrees and are experienced in every aspect of the project process giving them the ability to address your concerns and questions right away. The editor working on the project is truly interested in the project which makes all the difference when going over the intricacies of the project. I have recommended their services to others.”
Our one-on-one consultation services will pair you with an editor who can help you refine your ideas, develop a research plan, and plot out a writing schedule. Often, advisor feedback or an assignment rubric will be a major component in the discussion. Many clients like to order this consultation service in tandem with a heavy line edit of an early-stage draft, which gives them the opportunity to review an editor’s developmental work and then work out a plan to move forward in consultation with them.
PhD students are often overwhelmed and don’t know where to start. A one-on-one coaching session with our editors, who have been there, usually helps!
