Research Assistance

We have chosen to partner with Research Methodologist due to the reputation and student satisfaction learners have reported.

From Research Methodologist:

It’s no surprise that the majority of students committed to completing a thesis or dissertation feel this way. There are sleepless nights, feelings of angst and that unwelcome surge of self-doubt. It can often feel like nobody else understands what you’re going through. Although you might have a university adviser, they are often unable to dedicate the time and assistance which you need. So where does that leave a frustrated student?

If the first thing that comes into your head when you wake up in the morning is a to-do list, accompanied with that familiar pang of panic in the pit of your stomach, you are going to be unable to tackle your dissertation in the most time-effective and practical way. Even worse, you might just feel like it’s all too much and, before you know it, the brakes are on and you’re screeching to a halt, unable to move forward, paralysed by stress and uncertainty.

As the sense of overwhelm encompasses you, you start to wonder if this is the right path for you to take. What if all this work is for nothing? What if you fail? What if you just can’t do it? With all these thoughts swirling round your mind as you prepare to start work, this does not put you in the right frame of mind for success. The stress and anxiety you feel isn’t synonymous with dissertation. It might be hard to believe right now, but there is another way...

  • Imagine you have a vital question about your thesis and it can be answered straight away in real time.
  • Imagine a team of academic experts who are there specifically to help you break the barriers that prevent you from moving forward.
  • Imagine being able to work with a coach who is dedicated to helping you move past procrastination, to refine your productivity and to dig deeper.

Well, you don’t have to imagine anymore.

We at Research Methodologist understand the despair, frustration and unease that accompanies dissertation and thesis work. We know that you desperately want to succeed and thrive, but we also are aware of the sheer willpower that is involved in being able to stay on track, especially without detriment to your mental or even physical wellbeing.

Our team of dedicated coaches are here and waiting to help you take back control of your academic workload, with a fresh new perspective and practical assistance that will ease your stress and provide you with true, genuine support.

There are a lot of other dissertation clubs out there, but our coaching is specifically designed to help you get work done. Sounds simple, right? Well, a lot of coaches focus on the psychological aspect of working: motivation, counselling, time management, etc. And that’s great, if you need it. However, we’ve found that most students prefer to work with a coach who is going to help them complete Chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 so they can graduate. We focus on coaching you through finishing your dissertation. Our coaches are professors who have served, or are currently serving, at dissertation chairs at various universities and colleges, and we know what it takes to successfully propose a dissertation, defend a dissertation and graduate.
We provide two key services: our coaching program and our research assistance packages. These packages are only available to members of the coaching program. So, the first step is to become a member of our extremely affordable Coaching Club. As part of your membership, you’ll get to participate in our weekly live group office hours, where you can ask questions and get advice on your struggles from our coaches; receive unlimited email support; gain access to our private and confidential Facebook group to discuss issues and have questions answered by a coach; and enjoy access to research assistance services.
Our coaching program is a low cost, high quality, results-oriented program that provides you with a full team of support to answer questions, get advice and guidance, and remove obstacles as you work through your dissertation. You have the option to attend our weekly problem-solving office hours; email us with queries and receive a speedy answer within 24 hours, you can even send us your latest writing with chair/committee feedback and let us provide some guidance and suggest how to incorporate the revisions and interpret what the committee is asking you. This is by far our most popular service – and you get way more value than what we are charging. Our research assistance packages provide club members with more one-to-one coaching on specific chapters, helping you with all aspects of your writing, from drafting to revising and incorporating comments, to proposal submission, defense preparation, and much more.
We only work with a small, select community of students that we feel understand, and are invested in, our company ethos. We have established the Exclusive Scholars Coaching Club to create a community of like-minded individuals, provide coaching and guidance and it has been a great success. Our students really enjoy the more intimate coaching we provide, and we, in turn, enjoy giving it to them. WHAT FIELDS AND SPECIALTIES DO YOU WORK WITH? We work with all fields. We have students working on a PhD, Edd, DBA, PsyD, DMin, and more. Our clients study at traditional brick and mortar universities, public and private colleges, and online universities.
See our testimonials and what our extremely satisfied clients have to say about us. Plus, we also give you 30 days to try us out, which is our commitment to you because we’re confident you will find great value in our program. We do understand there are some not so reputable companies out there, so we appreciate why this is an important question to ask.
All of our coaches hold doctorate degrees, have served or are serving as dissertation chairs, are published authors and have helped numerous students complete a dissertation and graduate. We have qualitative, quantitative and mix-methods coaches. We have coaches for topic selection, literature review, data analysis, results, IRB submission, proposal and oral defence prep, conclusions and recommendations, and editing.
As soon as you sign up, you will receive a welcome package. You’ll then get access to join our Facebook group and be sent a contact list for our coaching email address (so you can start asking questions straightaway) and receive your first invitation to our weekly live office hours. You’ll be amazed at the useful tips and support provided in our forum that you can benefit from.
Not at all, this is the perfect time to begin. It’s been proven over and over again that those who wait until the dissertation stage to begin thinking about it rarely finish on time. The best advice we can give is to start planning and working on your dissertation DURING your coursework, so you have the best chance of graduating in a decent time.
It’s probably the lowest cost coaching program out there. We are not here to take advantage of students; we’re all part of the same academic community and we want to help you. Think of the costs of not finishing on time - you will probably end up paying so much more in dissertation course tuition and fees! By building a coaching team around you, you’ll have a much better chance of finishing on time and saving a huge amount of both time and money.
We don’t think that you will be unhappy, but if it isn’t for you, then you can cancel your membership with no questions asked - there’s no long-term commitment. In fact, if you cancel within the first 30 days, we’ll give you your membership money back, even if you have used our services and benefited from them. Additionally, you can also pause your membership if you decide to take a break.

Join the Exclusive Scholars Coaching Club today, and start enjoying the benefits of our help and support immediately. To prove our total confidence in our coaching, we offer you a 100% 30-day money back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied with our program.
