Do you want to write and defend your dissertation in one year (or less) and transition to a tenure track faculty position?

If you answered yes, you’re in the right place.

Do you want to write and defend your dissertation in one year (or less) and transition to a tenure track faculty position?

If you answered yes, you’re in the right place.

It’s been months…maybe even years.

And still no completed dissertation.

That dream of securing a tenure track faculty position is looking more and more like just that — a dream.

You’ve been staring at your laptop screen time and time again waiting for that inspiration to strike, only to be left overwhelmed, and most importantly…still with no done dissertation.

The truth is, you don’t have months or years to keep wasting. It’s time you took your seat at the tenure track table with a done dissertation.

And in The Done Dissertation Velocity Group Coaching Program, I’m going to help you do that.

Let me know if this is you...

  • You’ve been working on your dissertation for months (maybe even years now), but you still have not managed to finish
  • You know you need to finish your dissertation, but you keep telling yourself “I’ll get back to writing later”...and you never do.
  • You know that earning your doctorate is the first step to securing that tenure track faculty position, but the thought of writing a 100-plus page dissertation to make it happen just keeps you stressed and overwhelmed.
  • You have seen success in your current and past positions, but your goal is to secure a tenure track faculty position (or post-doc), and you know that can’t happen without completing your dissertation.
  • You are ready to use your dissertation to impact so many people, communities, and organizations that you care about, but it feels like that may never happen since your dissertation chair won’t pass you along to your defense.

Trust me, you’re not alone.


I know how hard it is to just want to give up and not write anything.

But I know that isn’t an option for you...and now it doesn’t have to be.

Meet your Coach

Hi, I’m Dr. Ramon Goings,


A college professor, researcher of over 60 publications, and founder of The Done Dissertation, a dissertation consulting firm.

After experiencing my own dissertation struggles while obtaining my Doctor of Education degree in urban educational leadership from Morgan State University, and seeing my own students struggle, I knew there had to be a better way. Today, using The Done Dissertation, I’ve made it my mission to help doctoral students and doctoral programs break down the dissertation process into manageable pieces so that doctoral students can finish their dissertations in one year (or less). Additionally, I have supported doctoral programs nationwide to provide a more relevant and expedited process for their doctoral students.

I have had the opportunity to help over 100 doctoral students navigate the dissertation process and support their journeys to become college professors, K-12/higher education administrators, and consultants.

Now, I’m ready to help you to do the same in The Done Dissertation Velocity Group Coaching Program.

“As someone who has not always been confident in his writing, I was looking for a service to assist with this. In my first attempt, I did not successfully pass my comprehensive examination. With the assistance and guidance of the Done Dissertation Service, not only did I pass my comprehensive examination, my committee noted that I made substantial progress in my writing.” -  Jeremy Eddie

“Dr. Goings' coaching program has played an instrumental part in my success as a doctoral student. Prior to working with Done Dissertation Coaching Services, I did not have the confidence that I would successfully matriculate through my doctoral studies. Dr. Goings, conditioned me to become a strong, critical, independent writer. He’s passionate about his work and cares about his students' success! I am entering the last phase of the dissertation process. I wouldn’t be at this milestone without Dr. Goings’ support along my journey.” -  Shaneena Holland

“Admittedly, I was skeptical about investing in a dissertation coach when I did not need intense content or technical writing support. However, Done Dissertation tailored support to fit my need for an accountability and thought partner. When I shared that I was also applying for assistant professor positions, I was pleasantly surprised and grateful that my coach provided resources and helped me turn my dissertation research into a job talk. By the end of my two months working with Done Dissertation, I successfully defended my dissertation and secured my current assistant professorship.” -  Dr. Tamela C. Thomas, Assistant Professor of Teacher Leadership, Kennesaw State University
