Optimum Research Consulting was extremely helpful to me in completing my Dissertation and earning my PhD degree. Alex Woodall was always optimistic and helpful, even during the most stressful times! The process of finishing a Dissertation can be difficult and make you feel like you are on your own. However, Optimum Research Consulting group helped me feel that I had a support system behind me and that eventually, together, the necessary elements of writing and editing a satisfactory Dissertation would eventually come to fruition, and it did!

I could not have completed my dissertation had it not been for the support of Optimum, and particularly Alex Woodall and Rachel Hamilton. I wrote my first three chapters and conducted my interviews. I was utterly exhausted from a new job, and Covid-19 had just closed the world down. I had no desire to learn NVivo and source my data. I reached out to Optimum for assistance, and Alex Woodall responded. He was an absolute “angel” that helped me through Ch.4 – he was patient, calm, and a wealth of knowledge. I then worked with Rachel Hamilton to help me with Ch. 5 and my PowerPoint for defense.  She was ALWAYS responsive and encouraging while coaching me through the defense. My gratitude to Alex and Rachel; I would not have completed my dissertation and successfully defended had not for them. Their invaluable expertise, wealth of knowledge, kindness, and compassion through this process was the best experience in the world. I would HIGHLY recommend Optimum!

I wanted to express my gratitude for one of your exceptional employees, Alex Woodall, Senior Research Consultant. His calm, patient manner was a great help to me when my frustration was at an all-time high. I don’t believe I would have been able to complete my Ph.D. without Alex’s invaluable expertise. His knowledge of dissertation writing, and his remarkable problem-solving abilities are rare indeed. If the quality of a firm’s employees is an indication of future success, then Optimum Research Consulting has a very bright future.
I will be recommending Optimum Research to my friends and family.

Everything seemed to be going fine on my own, but when my proposal got to the URR there were issues regarding the theoretical framework that required major reworking. I had to go back to the prospectus as well as my chapters, but was confused by my chair’s comments. I didn’t feel that I was getting the support I needed when I asked for help. A friend referred me to Optimum Research and they provided everything I needed for the dissertation editing. Optimum came in exactly as needed to address the feedback. I was falling short of my goals, and the services they provided were just what I needed to get through approval. I couldn’t have done it without Optimum!

I am so glad I called Optimum and spoke with Wei regarding my dissertation. While I had the general idea in my head, the specifics were far and few between and I was stuck on execution. I needed someone to really delve into the details with me. The price was reasonable but more importantly the consultants at ORC were there when I needed them. Other similar firms would not agree to deliver within the time-frame required. Everything worked out well and after putting grad school behind me, I feel ecstatic! If anyone ever reads this, please, please, consider your time and happiness when making your decisions. 🙂

The dissertation was difficult and stressful. When it came time to do Chapter 2 I felt lost in the endless journal articles. Hiring Optimum Research to help guide me through the process was the greatest. Their bespoke help was just what I needed. My gratitude is immense. Thank you everyone at Optimum !

The analysts at Optimum Research Consulting were instrumental in my graduation at Walden University with my PhD in Public Health. The feedback was everything I asked for and more. The revisions from the chairs became noticeably shorter after hiring the editors at ORC to review my work for additional feedback before submitting. They helped me and did it at a fair price. My family is proud that I have finished my PhD. I am happy I have my PhD and no longer need to pay tuition. It is a win-win for everyone. Very recommended !!!

Our Web developer was able to make a survey and collected data. Unfortunately when it came time to analyze, he didn’t have the statistics background to handle it and neither did our marketing team. We had determined the data was instrumental in the strategic decisions our company had to make. I spoke with Mr. Lim to explain what sort of questions we were wanting answered from our already collected data. He was able to understand our needs and the reports Optimum provided demonstrated this. We were confident that we were making the best decision going forward due to Optimum’s input. There was definite value in their services.

I had received a letter from my University saying that basically I did not have enough time to complete my thesis. I was already working overtime at my job but if I knew that if I did not finish my research all I would have left is a lot of student loans and no PhD. Paul and the Optimum Research team sent me an email often to steady my hand along the route. They played an important role in reviewing my research, guiding my direction, and providing an understanding of the analysis. Some days they just seemed to want to know if I was having a good day. The personal touch was often appreciated. It was worth the price which is reasonable. My dissertation research would have simply been too much to bear without the help I received from Optimum and untold amounts of stress would have insued. Thank you.

My instructors at Grand Canyon University had told me that my dissertation chapters needed considerable work before being acceptable. That is when I turned to Optimum Research Consulting after calling around and finding someone I was comfortable with. Wayne and Paul were instrumental in helping my revisions find approval. Their feedback took my writing to the next level and with that help I was able to accomplish my Business PhD!  I have not one bad thing to say about any of my dealings with Optimum Research Consulting and gladly recommend them to anyone who needs help with their graduate course-load.

As an African-American woman who received her PhD at the age of 53, my academic life was always a challenge until I found Optimum. Not only was I slower at learning than most of my younger classmates, I also have a job and a family which require my attention. I chose to work with Optimum because they knew the dissertation process inside out, and basically knew what to do every step of the way. They never missed a deadline, and they were always responsive to my questions via phone and email. When it came the time for final defense, I was assigned a defense preparation specialist who even helped me rehearse my final defense presentation. Thanks Optimum!

I came to Optimum Research Consulting under a great deal pressure. My undergraduate degree was a B.S. in Mathematics from a respected school, but it had been many years. With all the rigorous requirements put in place by the dissertation committee, it made it extremely time consuming to learn the nuances and advanced software needed to finalize my analysis. I called Optimum and spoke with Paul who then became a trusted mentor when I hired Optimum for their expertise in this area. Paul was able to figure out where I was confused and quickly focused on the right areas to get me past my slump. It was been relatively easy to move forward after consulting with the team at Optimum. Their flexibility in the level of service they provided was impressive and the price was quite fair. I fully recommend Optimum to everyone.

Being a practicing Nurse, I found it more difficult than anticipated when pursuing my PhD. Between my 2 children and a working husband, it just seemed to much to handle. My PhD at University of Phoenix in Nursing was not moving along like I had hoped. It was costing me money and causing anxiety. This is when I called around and came across Optimum. The fact that David was available to consult with me on a one on one basis made me felt so relieved.David at Optimum helped me in some key areas and answered countless questions. David and Optimum Research, THANK YOU for your service !

-Sarah Pruitt


Having learned English as my second language, the high level writing skill required was too much for me at my school. While I felt confident in the fundamentals of my research and the subject my writing needed much help. A friend recommended Optimum after having used them for an edit on their own paper. Optimum took my work and gave me some suggestions which I used to a great end. Ultimately this help was to be the greatest aid in helping me finish my degree. My chapters went through so much faster and my professors stopped spending so much time on my work. I write this recommendation as a better man with a higher potential. ORC, I feel like I still owe you. My gratitude has no bottom.

Some people are fortunate enough in life to have more money than time. That is my blessing and why I was able to hire the help of Optimum Research in order to receive my doctorate in a quite short timeframe. With the close supervision of Optimum’s consultants who were available whenever I needed help, the whole process could not have been any quicker. Optimum made the process super easy and now I can sign all my correspondence with my new title. I’m one happy customer.

I have been working with Paul over at Optimum for over a year. To be honest, I don’t have a highly academic background and needed someone to help me from start to finish. I had no idea how to use any data analysis software, and I was panicking after my chair returned my prospectus document with over 200 comments to revise! Realizing that I couldn’t do this on my own, I contacted several academic consulting firms before settling on Optimum. The best part about Optimum is that they were on the top of it all the way. Under Paul’s tutelage, not only was I able to get the prospectus fully approved within the next month, I am expecting to graduate with my PhD in the next few months. The cost was very reasonable, and if you consider the fact they assist free of charge throughout the brief revision process, I don’t think you will find a better deal.

I hired Optimum for my company’s data analysis needs. We had a gigabytes of data from an array of sensors going back over a year. Our existing data-analysis guy left and we discovered he really hadn’t been doing anything. We needed the data reported on in a manner in which we could extract value. This is where I discussed the issue with David at ORC. He suggested some methods of analyzing our data which to be frank none of us had quite considered. I was personally impressed and I do not say such things lightly. The work was on time and done very professionally. I have zero complaints about their services, and if you speak with their statistical consulting team you will know what I mean.

-John Courage

As a PhD student who has little money, I wasn’t sure if academic consulting was the way to go for me until I spoke with Paul from Optimum. He’s very knowledgeable about Statistics and is an accomplished researcher himself with multiple publications. I will be graduating at least half a year earlier than expected due to some great reviews from my committee, so my experience with Optimum has been more than worth it.
