Dissertation Coaching, Dissertation Coaching, Dissertation Editing
I have 16 years of experience working with over 5000 doctoral candidates. I also served as a Dissertation Chair. One of the biggest barriers I have observed with my clients and students is writing. Writing effectively is critical to completing your dissertation. I have found that my clients and students are able to articulate their ideas orally, but when it comes to writing, they are at a loss. I also struggled with writing my dissertation. It took me many drafts to identify how to best communicate my points. I used several techniques to help me overcome my writing challenges:
- I wrote every day. Part of my problem was that I suffered from writing anxiety. I found that the more I wrote, the easier it was.
- I constantly read and re-read what I wrote and asked myself if I understood my point. If I didn't understand it, I knew no one else would.
- I asked friends and family to read different sections. This helped me to see my work from another perspective and target trouble areas where I did not effectively communicate my points.
