Great instructor, knows her stuff!

Very helpful crash course on SPSS and basic statistics, discussed class project, reviewed and made corrections to spss data. Darla was patient and knew her stuff. She is a great teacher.

Celicia, 1 lesson with Darla

Knowledgeable & Attentive

The world of statistics can be quite complex for person’s such as myself. I had a minimal understanding of stats when I began working with Darla. Through her attentiveness to understanding my learning needs and style as a non-traditional and older student, she worked with me to excel in my course. I ended the course with an A grade and most importantly, I learned about statistical concepts, learning techniques and course and test preparation skills. Darla is specialized, knowledgeable and has the unique capacity to turn the complexity of this subject matter into manageable and attainable steps. She is committed to educating and supporting her students, I am proof of this reality. I am so glad she’s my tutor and champion in becoming the best student I can be.

Patricia, 39 lessons with Darla

Knowledgeable and patient

Darla briefly went over what we discussed during our first meeting. Darla ensured I did my homework assignments that she gave me. She read a journal article that I provided her for review. I appreciate all of Darla's support.

Karen, 3 lessons with Darla

Very knowledgable about quantitative statistic; professional; and extremely patient

Darla was the best tutor I have ever had. She is extremely knowledgeable of quantitative statistics and very patient. She not only showed me how to run my statistical analysis, but she allowed me to do it also, she that I would learn the process. for myself. She also helped me to code my dataset and pair down my research questions so that they were clearer and matched up with my hypotheses. I cannot say enough about her. I am so appreciative, because she helped me out in a crisis and now I will be able to graduate with my doctorate on time. She is the best!! God bless you, Darla.

Kim, 1 lesson with Darla

Super helpful and invested

She was patient, yet direct and to the point. I learned all I had sent out to accomplish in our session. Would for sure recommend Darla!

Bonnie, 2 lessons with Darla

Experienced, thorough and extremely helpful in thinking through processes

Darla helped me to restructure my dissertation sections so they would include all the relevant information and clarify my thoughts. She is timely, gets to the task at hand and reviews her recommendations before the session is over.

Lori, 4 lessons with Darla

Exceedingly, abundantly helpful!

Darla is an empiricist that loves research and teaching the others the art. She is kind, insightful, and patient. She is a valuable resource for a student struggling in a statistics class, a PhD candidate working on a dissertation, or anything in between! She fully comprehends and clearly explains the complexities of research and statistics.

Beth , 1 lesson with Darla

Very personable and helpful

Darla was a great tutor who knew the SPSS materials and helped guide me through the process. I received an 89 on the assignment. She was flexible in meeting me at the last minute and ensured I comprehended the things we discussed. I would definitely be calling on her again in the future.

LaVenia, 1 lesson with Darla

Wonderful tutor!

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.
