PhD Coaching

PhD Coaching offers you expert help with your thesis

Your PhD is one of the greatest investments you will make in your life. Yet, 40% of doctoral students who begin a PhD program fail to complete. Reasons for failure centre on “the lack of preparation and opportunities to practice research and the relationship between faculty adviser and the doctoral student” (Maher, Ford & Thompson, 2004, p. 31).

Candidates also fail for reasons of motivation and difficulties with writing  and academic English.

I am Dr John McAndrew, owner and coach at PhD Coaching, and I offer expert support and help to ensure you the best learning experience and value for your doctoral study.

The coaching, carried out by one-to-one Zoom video conferencing and email, allows you to make sense of the whole PhD process and to easily understand what is required and how to fulfill that requirement at each stage of the PhD. We focus on your specific needs, and we work together so that you can both improve your research and writing and at the same time build your skill sets.

This short video explains the coaching process.

I offer a friendly, competitive, and professional service, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

“Thank you, thank you, thank you, for doing such a patient and good work supporting me through the writing of my thesis and journal articles. I could achieve some publications of journal articles and book chapters and the International Award winner in Global Studies during my PhD candidate period. I can truly recommend Dr. McAndrew.” Joanne Hong, PhD, Macquarie University, Australia.
