  • Statistician – design your research study with the help of a statistician. The most valuable outcome is a restructuring of your research instrument. Specifically, do you wish to keep your questions on your survey open-ended, and then do a qualitative analysis, or do you wish to ask questions with a Likert-scale, resulting in binary responses? Learn more about mixed-methods, grounded theory, thematic analysis, and statistical testing relevant to your research question and project topic.
  • Disability Supports – you can be coached by an expert in learning styles. Our coach can help you organize your schoolwork, recommend digital tools to stay on your planned work track, and even liaise between you and your school’s disability services coordinator to ensure that you are in a supportive environment and fully accommodated. Learn how to navigate your school’s library, cite in APA format, and restructure your writing to meet your course objectives.
  • Specialist Coaching – Student topics vary from studying the impact of a visual impairment on the family dynamic, to studying whether we contracted viruses from other life forms.
