Student Testimonials

Dr. Dawn Marie Sherman is THE BEST coach. She took me from 32 pages in August 2017 to 227 pages of Phinished in December 2017.

Jasmine Carstarphen-Killiebrew, Ph.D. Piedmont International University, 2017

Special thanks to my dissertation coach, Dr. Dawn Marie Sherman. You have been an incredible mentor and encourager. We slayed this disseration in 9 months. Thank you for your guidance and encouragement. You are truly amazing.

Cubeon Pitts, Ph.D. Piedmont International University, 2018

Dr. Dawn Sherman is an amazing tutor and the reason I was able to pass statistics. After weeks of struggling with online and in-person tutors that could not explain the contents connection to the 'real-world', I finally found Dr. Sherman. After three seessions, I was able to understand the material and prepare for my final exam. These sessions provide a unique type of support. Unlike other services, Dawn works with you through misunderstanding and challenges you to reframe your knowledge until you demonstrate mastery. She also has an amazing way of creating a comfortable atmosphere to ask questions. I never felt that any question was too far 'off-track' to ask in that space. For math and statistic courses that require more than memorization, Dr. Sherman can give you the foundation you need to succeed.

Charlene Evans-Smith, Ph.D. Candidate George Washington University, 2019

First draft of my proposal back with no major complaints and great feedback. Dr. Dawn Marie Sherman, you are amazing. Thank you!
