What will my free 30 minute consultation include?
In your initial consultation, you can ask me questions about my background, explain your ideas as they stand, discuss whether I am the right person to assist you, and, if I am, how we can best work together. If not, I may be able to recommend someone else.
How should I prepare for my initial consultation?
It is best to come to see me early in the dissertation process, but I can help you at any stage. All you need do to prepare is have an idea you want to discuss.
Is my project too small – Is this really a good fit?
No project is too small. Some dissertations involve only relatively simple statistics – If a simple research method answers your questions, then that is the method to use. However, it is not always the case that I am the right consultant for you. While I know a lot about statistics, no one knows it all. In the initial conversation, we will determine this.
How much does this cost?
I have an hourly fee. The more work you need from me, the higher the cost. I bill in small increments, so that neither you nor I will ever be surprised, and I consult with you frequently, keeping you updated every step of the way. Although my time is not cheap, you should consider that 1) You are hiring an experienced professional, with more than a decade of experience and 2) You have spent many thousands of dollars and years of time getting to this point. A PhD is much better than an ABD
How will the work be delivered to me?
I can deliver work in almost any format. I can give you raw output, annotated output, or an outline of the methods and results chapter. One thing I do not do is deliver fully written methods and results sections. Not only is that a key part of the dissertation process, but it leaves you with material you may not understand, and that you may not be comfortable defending before your committee. You don’t need to know every detail of every analysis, but you need to understand the key elements. I work as a partner of my clients, not a “hired gun”.
Will I have to cite Peter Flom as a reference in my dissertation?
No, but if you like the work I do, I appreciate referrals. I do require that you inform your committee, early in the process, that you have hired a consultant.
