Free Initial Review

I offer a free 15-minute initial review for doctoral candidates completing their dissertations/theses for education-related Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and Doctor of Education (EdD) degrees. I offer a free 30-minute initial review for P-12 school leaders and Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) leaders to review the needs and goals of the organizations. After the complimentary initial review, I recommend an appropriate service, if applicable.

“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
