Specifically designed to help with the unique challenges of a dissertation in the humanities, relentlessly optimistic, and always honest. We’re here to help you get that D(issertation)! Whether you need help with understanding what your committee wants to see in your draft or moving past some serious writer’s block, we have a service to meet your needs at about 1/4th of what other dissertation coaching sites cost.

Dissertation Coaching

Our flagship service. We provide more help for a lower price point than any of our competitors. For $300/session you get a one hour consultation, a personalized to-do list that makes productivity easy (some say addictive), and two follow-up emails or one 30 minute follow-up chat.

You can upgrade to a $200 session which includes review of your current document in addition to all the coaching services mentioned above.


My editing style is honest and relentlessly optimistic. I believe in the potential of your project. To help you realize that potential I’ll give you honest feedback from the perspective of a dissertation reader. $55/hour. Projects over 60 pages will arrange a flat fee.

Guest Speaker

Like a webinar, but live! This is great option for grad student orgs. The typical format is addressing a challenge, like being a first-gen student or task management, and presenting practical solutions. Talks are one hour long. Your org can keep a recording of our session. $150/talk.

Topics I’ve talked about in the past include but are not limited to: understanding the dissertation process, first-gen phd student struggles, crushing conferences, balancing teaching with dissertating, how to write a freaking dissertation, how to approach your coursework.

P.S. You can probably get a grant from your student government to help cover the cost!


Recordings of our webinars are coming soon. $50/webinar.

Easily more helpful than my committee.

With Dr. Hough’s help, I was able to map out the larger considerations of my dissertation and develop confidence as a scholar. I cannot recommend abd2phd enough.
