Doctoral Students Describe Working with Me



There is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY I could have completed my dissertation, as painlessly, without the help of Dr. Carroll. She provided me sound advice, great statistical help, and a very supportive presence. Whenever I was completely confused about what I should do (which was many, many times), I called Dr. Carroll and she patiently explained what might be a good next step. In my survey, I collected way too much data; she helped me simplify my work so I could complete my document and finally graduate. I always felt she was sincerely interested in my work and my success. I want to thank you for the help you provided me in finishing (!) my dissertation. Again, you were a pleasure to work with. John Hopkins University

Dr. Carroll truly saved the day!  I was in a last minute crunch to finish my dissertation as I was quickly approaching my seven year deadline.  After having a bad experience with a very inexperienced statistician. I was feeling really down and out about trusting someone else.  However, I began researching online and Dr. Carroll’s website appeared.  I knew from the moment she contacted me shortly after my online inquiry that everything was going to work out just fine. Her very positive and caring attitude along with her statistical expertise was just what I needed to complete the final leg of my dissertation.  I would highly recommend her services to anyone seeking excellent support and true professionalism.  Thanks, Dr Carroll!

By working with Dr. Carroll, I felt very prepared to defend my dissertation and would recommend her to anyone!  Dr. Virnitia J. Dixon, CPC

Working with Dr. Carroll proved to be pivotal to my completing the doctoral process. Every step in the work stream from scheduling our phone conferences, reviewing methodology, to data analysis support was efficient and cost effective.  I would refer this service without reservation. Dr. Joseph Conte, PhD, CPHQ Staten Island Performing Provider System


 I finished my Doctor of Nursing Practice degree last year, and would have struggled immensely without Dr. Carroll's assistance and expertise. This is not a primary research dissertation, but the statistics process was similar. Of course it is so common for students to begin to overthink data, but Dr. Carroll gently nipped that in the bud immediately! She spent time with me through the entire process--from the proposal to the final paper and defense to break things down to a very manageable and rather simple level. As a result, I was able to easily convey the results in my paper and during my defense. She even helped me develop the data collection tools, and referred me to some extra (very easy to read) materials that helped prepare me for the defense. She always responded to my emails and kept her appointments. More than this, she is extremely personable, compassionate, warm, and caring (in addition to brilliant). I have to say that if I would have had her as a professor in graduate school for my statistics or research course, I would have had a much better grasp on understanding data many moons ago.

I was so fortunate to find Dr. Carroll through my various searches online while I was writing my doctoral dissertation. Being an inquisitive and courageous learner, I felt that I need a professional statistician to ensure that my research methods are in sync with my analysis. I actually did couple of searches online for several months, but my instinct keeps directing me to Dr. Carroll after visiting her website. I picked up the courage and called her, behold, the connection was there and our reasoning sounds alike. I said in my mind; let me give her a trial. At the end, the trial turned out to be a blessing in disguise. She offered a lot of valuable statistical guidance, even beyond what she originally promised. She was there for me whenever I call and her email response was fast. Her overall guidance was imaginable which triggered a long-term relationship for future academic collaboration and networking. Once again, thank you Dr. Carroll for contributing to my academic journey. Doctoral student in Maryland


Hello Dr. Carroll. I am a Psychology student. I have just started my third year in the honors program, which includes two courses which I find difficult - Research Methods and Data Analysis. Both rely on a strong understanding of, and proficiency in statistics. While doing my homework this evening using SPSS, I started to believe I was in over my head and after searching for answers using books and Internet queries I felt even more defeated. My understanding of statistics became more and more hopeless. Then I came across your website. It presents information in a very straight forward, non-jargon-filled manner. It's exactly what I have been (desperately) looking for! It appears as if it will be my "go to" resource to get some traction in these two courses. If you ever decide to write a book, I'm in line. Brock University in Ontario, Canada

I cannot thank you enough for everything you've done. I would never make it to graduation had I not found you. I really feel that I was blessed to have found you. With all that has happened to me during this process. I'm amazed that I even arrived here. If I had not found you, I probably would have just folded under pressure and remained ABD.
