Anxious about dissertation statistics? You are not alone!

The dissertation statistics - from the initial research design to writing up statistical results - create anxiety for many graduate students. Most of us have not had math since high school, and it was not our favorite subject.

Plus, professors teach quantitative statistical formulas, and make the research designs complex. You don’t have the confidence to ask questions and when you do, the answers add to your confusion.

I can help. With expertise and care, I have provided dissertation advice to hundreds of doctoral students so that they complete their degree in less time, with much less stress and without breaking the bank.

And you will always communicate directly with me. I personally will provide you with dissertation support. You will not be passed onto to someone else.

We can do all the work by phone, email or by mail. You are welcome to visit my office - if you prefer.

Here are some of the areas where most students have asked for my assistance. I have provided each with coaching, tutoring, support, expertise and guidance.
