“I think Dr. Roberts is the BEST at teaching practical statistics to graduate students. The materials she has developed are useful and help make the complex simple and understandable.” Dr. George White, Professor of Education at Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA, Coordinator of the Educational Leadership Program
“Dr. Laura Roberts has been one of the best teachers I have known; indeed her explanations regarding statistical measures have helped me to understand methodology better. I am indebted to her for all her guidance and thoughtful insights. Her materials certainly helped me greatly with getting the ‘big picture.’ I really admire the way she made the ‘beauty’ of statistics parallel art. She has a great ability to reveal meaning/order from what sometimes appears as random chaos.” Dr. Andrew Westerman, Principal, Ruamrudee International School Bangkok, Thailand
“Dr. Roberts made statistics come to life. Her use of abstract art to hook and hold, and also make the point of how statistics is a distillation of data, was an excellent component to the program.” Ted Mockrish, International School Principal in the Philippines
“Laura is an expert in her field, so is able to clarify and help in a quick and efficient manner. She...helps you step by step to improve your thinking and thus your work. She has a knack of giving you good pointers to move you along. She is a great thinker, teacher and coach...Secondly, Laura has worked with graduate students from all over the world, so is skilled in knowing how to help efficiently and effectively in a timely manner. She is extremely professional and… communicative. Thirdly, and for me this has been the best: she always makes me feel like I can do this! The doctoral road is a lonely road and it is good to know you have a 'friend' on the end of an e-mail who will keep you on track. I spent a week with Laura...and that was a turning point in my work. I highly recommend her - not only is she an expert in her field, but she is extremely approachable, a task master in a positive way...and finally she is a wonderful human being. If you want to finish (your dissertation) in a timely manner, Laura is your woman.” Oli Tooher-Hancock, Doctoral Candidate, Lehigh University.
