I worked with Darla for 2 semesters and, because of her help, grew to really enjoy statistics! I truly could not have achieved an A without Darla's help. She was very flexible to my schedule needs and was always willing to work with me however long I needed. I have always considered myself to be a terrible math student. I found no pleasure in math and dreaded the advanced statistics classes that I would have to take as a requirement for my doctoral program. Working with Darla has been SUCH a great help. She helps me to understand the concepts in language that I can understand. I ask tons of questions and she patiently explains the topic being examined. I have actually grown to enjoy statistics and I credit Darla for helping me to get over my math anxiety! She is a wonderful tutor and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a better understanding of statistics.
