"I had the incredible opportunity to have a one-on-one class with Bill and I loved every minute of it. I call him the educational oasis for Florida artist. He is a real talented artist with an unselfish passion for teaching."

"Bill Roberts is a gifted teacher. After the class, I commented on my theory that All teachers fell into one of two catagories; the ones who "have it in their hearts" and the ones who are "just doing a job." Bill definately "feels teaching." He has all the qualities that make for a good teacher; patients, knowledge, skills, and desire. He let me find my own way thru each stage of the process, passing along hints, ideas, and techniques that helped me surpass my goals. Bill easily identified my skill levels and areas of deficiency, and provided the exact amount of help and direction required to make my visit a great success."
