Before you enter an academic service relationship with The Kind Coach, you are sure to have some questions. You should. We’ve tried to provide answers to the most common ones, but if your question does not appear here, ask it at email@example.com.
The Kind Coach is a small business, which guarantees that you will receive personal attention and we will take the time to get to know you and your work. Our service will be customized to your needs, not only academically, but also personally. We have over 20 years of academic experience, we’ve published both in academic journals, and textbooks, been through IRB and sat on IRB boards, analyzed countless data sets and have a general wealth of experience and knowledge. Most importantly, we have a respect for human beings (and animals and nature too) and we really understand how important your dissertation / thesis / comps / academic activity is to you. Also, we are pretty inexpensive, which is a big plus.
Absolutely! In fact, we have forms for that. Mercifully, our forms are short and to the point, but our lawyer friends tell us we must have them. You will have an opportunity to review and sign those forms before we begin working together. Our forms include confidentiality, scope of work and payment, and liability. Our forms also say that we will never ever use your ideas in our own research.
Absolutely NOT! One time The Kind Coach bought a membership to the gym. Then, due to a broken limb they tried to get out of the membership (which was a legitimate reason under the gym’s contract). The gym would not allow The Kind Coach break their contract and kept trying to collect money! The Kind Coach had to ask an attorney to write a kind letter on their behalf pointing out the broken limb clause in the gym’s contract. The Kind Coach now attends a “no contract” gym and has vowed to never sign or ask anyone to sign a contract again!
We cannot tell you until we talk to you and assess your needs. If you can find someone who can promise you an exact number of months, weeks, or days that it will take you to finish your work, then you should work with them because they have powers we do not. The best we can do is give you estimates based on your willingness and ability to do the work and respond to our feedback and advice. Here are some examples of timelines that we can give provided you are willing to do whatever it takes on your end to write, edit, or read.
· Three comprehensive exams questions (planning and write up): 2-3 weeks
· Master’s Thesis (up to data collection): 1-2 months
· Developing an idea for research: 1-2 weeks
· Statistical analysis: Cannot begin to estimate – too many factors involved
· Dissertation Chapters 1-3: 1-3 months, depending on the level and scope of work
· Dissertation Chapters 1-5: 1 month (as long as data analysis has been completed, if not, then longer)
· Editing and Formatting: 1 week
Yes!!! We have a VERY EXTRA special place in our heart for non-native English speakers and we are really good at working with them. Please call!
Talking to you is the cornerstone of what we do. You will always have a number to call and we will schedule lots of meetings or meet as necessary. Sometimes, ten emails can be very effectively replaced with a 15-minute conversation and we truly believe that.
