“Guiding Light I recently had a consultation with Dr. Haynes of the Scholars Professional Editing Group. I have been in my program for 2 years and I am in the final stages of my research. After only one session with this amazing scholar, I was able to get much needed clarification on areas of the work where I struggled. This is a great program for anyone who needs guidance with their writing. I can't say enough about this experience. If you need help with your writing for your Master's thesis, or your dissertation or just want to improve your skills, this is the place. Thank you Dr. Haynes for guiding me to the light. Forever grateful.”

“Marching On! I joined the Boot Camp Program a year ago, not knowing what to expect. My primary goal was to learn effective strategies for navigating the doctorate program and get unscathed to the finish line. So far, I must say that the program offers a supportive environment. It is designed to fulfill the needs of the students wherever they are in their academic work. One-to-one teaching is a valuable option for students who require specific guidance with their coursework. Sessions for mental wellness and stress relief are available to maintain optimal learning. In addition, the ongoing evaluation process is also helpful to ensure a perfect match of the student and coach to attain desired outcomes. Thank you, Scholars Professionals Editing Group, Boot Camp, for making a difference in my Ph.D. journey. My work is well underway, and I am confident I am on the right track toward completing my Ph.D. program.”

Marlyn L (Rutgers University)

“I Have procrastinated, I have struggled, and I often doubt whether I could finiah this dissertation with all of my competing priorities. I should have contacted Dr. Haynes and her team much earlier. My dissertation team has been very helpful, but I need 1:1 support. Dr. Tamika Haynes connected me with Dr. Katie fallen who is my 1:1 coach. Dr. Allen is accessible, supportive, and very knowledgeable about my research study and particularly NVivo. My methods committee has commented on my progress and it is because of Dr. Allen's support. We all need a coach. We do not have to do this work by ourselves. Let's use the expertise of others. Thank you, Dr. Haynes!”
