“I had the opportunity to utilize this great service to aid in the completion of my PhD. Dr. Grant offered new and important insights, which I then shared with my dissertation committee. Her constant support and upbeat energy gave me the momentum to continue toward my goal—graduation. She constantly checked in on me and the progress I was making which allowed me to complete my thesis in record time. I highly recommend her service and professionalism. And I am delighted to recommend this service for anyone who is pursuing their degree!” L.D., PhD
“As a veteran teacher, I am always looking for a fresh take on the causes of challenges within my district. One of the greatest challenges faced year after year is low graduation rate. With the guidance and expertise of Dr. Grant, I am now able to implement real strategies and solutions in my craft, which have dramatically increased the graduation rate of my students. I would highly recommend this service for any educator looking to transform his/her/their approach to teaching for student success.” C.D.
