Now's the perfect time to focus on YOU so you can stay resilient in these challenging times. When you're at your best your students can be, too.
No matter what stage you are in, it's a natural feature of any graduate degree for you to feel lost, overwhelmed, paralyzed ... you name it. You can fluctuate between knowing what you're doing and then falling into an abyss of confusion and despair. NEWSFLASH! It doesn't have to be that way.
I have over 20 years of experience with coaching graduate students from starting their master's thesis or dissertation, to finishing, graduating, and publishing.
Your graduate degree can feel like it has taken over your life. But with personalized coaching, you can get your life back and continue to grow into the amazing person you are and want to be, with a major contribution to the world under your belt that can launch you into all kinds of opportunities that -- without a graduate degree -- wouldn't be possible.
“Having Genét arrive halfway through my dissertation journey to companion me through these complicated and confusing landscapes in which I find myself, was like being accompanied by an invaluable Sherpa to these realms. She knows which mountains are worth the climb and when it is better to follow the flow of the river. As a deft educator and humble mentor, Genét reminded me of my own unique path and its worth, while also gently accompanying me on the trek, which, I must say, had been very lonely up to that point. In truth, it was akin to a (warm and friendly) True North Compass appearing in my pocket.” ~ Julia, University of Melbourne, Australia
“As a non-traditional student, returning to school to change careers later in life, it was my good fortune to find Dr. Simone. Her deep understanding of the certification process, and commitment to students and the greater cause of education toward bringing about positive change in the world are clearly evident in how she goes about her work. My own journey included difficult and unforeseen challenges, but Genét's steady hand and determined temperament served to guide and propel me forward. I don't know what I would have done without the caring, knowledgeable and constant support she provided for me.” ~ Mona, Western Washington University,
"I was blessed to have Dr. Simone serve as member of my doctoral committee. Grounded in interdisciplinary scholarly methods with a keen ability to draw forth—and believe in—the vision, wisdom and insights of the learner, Genét can help see what’s getting in the way and provide guidance and support for getting back on track. Every dissertation/thesis writer needs a team with diverse talents, and it is rare to find such a broad and inclusive range of talents and skills in one person.—Candace W. Core Faculty, Peace Studies, Naropa University
" Genét was valuable mentor for me. She helped me set attainable goals and then encouraged and challenged me to meet those goals. The support I received from Genét exceeded all of my expectations. She was instrumental in helping me build my self-confidence. Genét helped me go from an overwhelmed college student to a professional in the education field. I will forever be grateful for the time and effort she put in to helping me become the best version of myself."
~ Jessica, Western Washington University, Teacher Education
