Research, Consultation, and Data Analysis
Our professional PhD-coaches, editors, and statisticians will guide you efficiently through the process.
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!

How Does it Work?
Private tutoring and coaching by PhD-editors and statisticians
This service allows clients to speak directly with either one of our editors or statisticians about their project. We carefully pair each client with a consultant who is appropriately suited to the clients’ specific needs.
Perfect for the beginning stages of your project, a coach can help you refine your ideas, develop a research plan, and set out a writing schedule. Advisor’s feedback is a common topic of discussion with our coaches or consultants. Clients often use our consultation services after they have received written feedback during a developmental edit or methodological/statistical review of an early-stage draft. This gives them the opportunity to review our editor's developmental feedback, ask questions, and, together, determine a plan to move forward with the paper.
Tutoring/coaching sessions are billed by the hour and generally conducted via phone or Zoom. The cost is $130 for the first hour and $110/hour for each single session after, with discounts on packages of 5 or more consultation sessions: 5 consultations = $100/hour.

Critical review and written feedback by PhD-editors and statisticians
With this service we provide written feedback on your drafts via our developmental editing & document review service. Your editor will analyse the structure of your thesis and strength of your argument in the course of editing your document and provide you with written feedback containing suggestions and advice on how to develop your work further. Alternatively, you statistician will review your documents and provide a critical review of your methodology, results, or discussion sections and provide you with comprehensive written feedback on how to improve each section.
Common issues addressed through this critical review service include:
- Conceptualization and planning
- Reviewing and critiquing sources
- Structure and logical flow
- Articulation, argumentation, and clarity
- Strengthening the methodology and research questions
- Review of instruments/measures
- Review and critique of data analysis plans
- Validity and reliability
- Assessment of statistical analysis interpretation
