Students Success Stories

After not receiving school approval in March of 2017, my mentor and I agreed that I needed more assistance with my dissertation. Due to the first writing coach only available for one session, there was a second request for a different writing coach. On 5/1/2017 Dr. Brenda Washington was the second writing coach assigned to assist with my dissertation. She immediately gave her feedback and expertise on how to improve my writing. She was willing to work with me until my paper was ready for school approval again. There were countless conference calls, and I was willing to accept her advice and knowledge about writing organization and grammatical errors. It was a challenge to continue to read and edit my paper, but her encouragement motivated me to finish. Her positive attitude and spirit were very appreciated. Due to everything accomplished with Dr. Washington, I received school approval on 12/20/2017. I want to thank her for everything she has done for me. I pray God continue to bless her and her career endeavors. 


Thanks again,

Ms. Steele

Dr. Washington's work is detail oriented, passionate, clear cut, educational, inspirational (yes inspirational), and commands excellence.  I have been working with Dr. Brenda on my dissertation for two years.  She has taught me so much.  I had 3 editors prior to working with Dr. Brenda, and when I thought my work was done and all was well she caught so much and helped me.  All 3 editors quit on me for one reason or another. Dr. Brenda,  she goes above and beyond to get things done and out on time.  She goes the extra mile to ensure not only that the work is edited but that you understand her reasoning or the "rule."  With her on your team you can not go wrong.  For me she has been God sent, she has been so optimistic for me ( a cheerleader) for me even when I don't feel like being happy about my writing.  She is a destiny helper.  She knows her stuff, she gives on point corrections and works with you to figure out what is really the point you are trying to bring across to your reader/s.  She is professional, profound, and pristine.  She is also one of the most reasonable editors/writing coach on the market.  You get not only what you have paid for but even more.  You get dedication and passion!
