Try These Tips to Overcome Major Challenges in Writing Your Dissertation

Your situation may seem hopeless, but you can get beyond those major challenges to finish your dissertation. by Michael Premo Over the years, I’ve helped a lot of doctoral candidates (over a hundred) experiencing major challenges while writing their dissertation. Many of them had either stalled out or were dead in the water, and, because they waited to get help from a writing coach or APA editor, they were getting dangerously close to no longer qualifying for graduation. That’s years of time, energy, and money going toward nothing. What’s Your Major Challenge? The process of writing a dissertation is difficult. So, when other things get in the way, it becomes next to impossible to complete. Let’s start with defining what a major challenge is [...]

Support Your Community Charities This Summer

Charitable organizations need our help, now more than ever. by Michael Premo, Writer Recently, I sponsored a hole for the Saginaw West Lion’s Club golf tournament.

Know When You Need to Hire a Professional Writing Coach

As a professional writing coach, I want to get you organized and motivated, so you can achieve your goals. That’s all it takes. Some motivation, implicit and explicit, and organization. Why does it seem so simple? Because those are the two things that I’ve found to be the most inhibitory for any doctoral candidate or individual writing about their expertise. Book-length works and doctoral theses are long and often cumbersome projects that take years to complete.

Your expectations are aligned. Why is it so difficult to write it all [...]

Dissertation Advice: Planning Your Chapter 4

As an APA writing coach, I have worked with many doctoral candidates (PhD., Ed.D., and DBA) on their chapter four. Regardless if it’s quantitative or qualitative, this chapter presented a lot of concerns for them, primarily with analyzing the data and how it needs to be presented on the page. This is a quick look at some of these problems and how those hurdles can be overcome. Quantitative Analysis - Results For anyone that’s good with math, especially statistics, quantitative is simple and rather straight forward. But not everyone is steeped in statistical knowledge. So, for those of us who don’t fully understand statistics, chapter four ends up being more difficult than our initial impression. Fortunately, there’s not a lot of writing for this [...]
