|let the parents of these students speak for themselves about their experience working with ritzya, the drama coach:|
Ritzya (The Drama Coach),
you SO much for working with our actors and
actresses...It is amazing
that after coaching each one privately and then in conjunction with
others in their scene for just a few minutes you were able to help them
become the character each was meant to be and enhance their
stage presence! As I watched their subsequent performance during the dress rehearsal and final production it was clear your
work with them was pivitol. I can't imagine what heights we could
have attained had we engaged you earlier!!!! Sometimes it just helps
for an outsider to come in as it reinforces what we have already told them and
gives them a fresh perspective. Please be assured that the students
themselves and not just the parents noticed the difference your help made.

Thank you so much
for coming out to spend your Saturday with us. We all really appreciate your
gifts and talents and the wonderful way you use them to glorify God. You not
only have great creative gifts, but they way you work with the kids is amazing.
Their faces light up, they gain confidence and they really go to the next
(Stephen J. Pimpo, Managing Director, Public Services, Bearing Point)
Not only have you elevated
everyone's speeches to a winning
level but for some you have awakened a
passion to pursue with excellence
their dreams... Jim Reid
Thanks so much for
arranging yesterday's session with Ritzya! The kids all worked very hard and
she was wonderful! I can't believe how much energy she had for the entire 7
hours and she gave each one of the guys comprehensive feedback, great ideas and
specific individual attention. Definitely time and resources well spent!...
Thanks so much for taking half of your day to spend with my sons Stephen
and Michael, and Andrew and Elias Gunther. I really appreciated you taking the
time to listen, engage, and coach the guys in some very creative and insightful
ways that not only helped them learn, but built them up so that they have the
confidence to continue to improve. Hopefully you'll see the fruits of your
labor first hand at the Vector tournament and they will all make you proud.
Thanks for what you do and for your passion for our students. You have a
wonderful gift and it is terrific to see you putting it to use to help others... Stephen J. Pimpo
The kids sure have a lot of fun working with you and learn
so much. We really appreciate ALL your
