I can’t thank you enough for all your wonderful teaching! I came to you at the recommendation of my boss, not knowing what to expect. I became so comfortable in your office and with your communication training, that I truly enjoyed coming to your sessions. I learned so much about myself, and it was such a help to make that display board of all my facial expressions! I now have that on my desk at my office to keep as a reminder of how I look at all times! There were so many positive things I learned about business etiquette and managerial skills, I just can’t thank you enough. I think I really miss our time together.

Dear Ms. Rolan,
It is with great gratitude that I write my feedback for your class. Since accepting your etiquette and communications guidance, I have become full of confidence. I no longer worry about My language barrier. I started to speak with greater volume, and have overcome many mental hangups, and my Presentation  skills have greatly improved.

Thank you again, Ms. Rolan.

Dear Ms. Rolan,

I loved my experience with you. I learned so much which helped me make many improvements, and I am most thankful. The lessons I learned will help me with my career, and I hope to teach my children proper table manners and how to speak and address others.

I enjoyed the class on how to properly dress, and I will always cherish your quotes. For example: “A personal polished image is the first thing people will see when they meet you, so when you leave your home, be ready for all possibilities.” Thanks to Ms. Roslyn, I am ready.

Dear Ms. Roslyn,

I appreciate the time and attention you’ve invested in me during the month we worked together. I am personally on a journey of growth and self-improvement, and you’ve made a meaningful contribution to it. We worked on developing greater strength to my voice and my Presentation skills, which I truly needed.

After working with you, I feel I have a greater understanding of the basics of communication and etiquette. I also feel I have the direction now to continue to dive deeper into developing my skills for my future business. Besides that, your openness has helped me become wiser as a woman. Spending time with you, Ms. Roslyn, was truly a gift.

Thank you for all your effort.

Dear Coach Roslyn,

My time in your course has helped me a lot with being more conscious of how I present myself to others. I learned about how to improve my postures to look more confident, and to be better groomed so my long hair is away from my face and my beard is trimmed and more appealing.

You helped me identify what I must work on to become the person I would like to be, and to drafting what my goals should be.

We identified what is holding me back, and what I need to do to fundamentally change my negative thinking about myself.

I thank you for being so positive about me, and trying to help me feel that way about myself. Being with you did give me more confidence.

You gave me guidelines for social interactions which I know I will find most useful. Thank you for a good coaching experience.

Dear Ms. Roslyn,

I do appreciate your pointers on how not to appear “creepy” to girls on campus. I think that was very helpful because sometimes when I try to start a conversation with them, they say I am “strange”. So I think that is because I just didn’t know how to approach them.

You opened my eyes to some ideas I never would know about. Also, you gave me pointers on the way I looked, that my hair should be off my face so people can see my lovely eyes. That would stop me from looking off putting as well.

I appreciate the book you gave me to help with my handwriting. I also liked creating the Poster for my dorm room, with a special message about social interaction as a reminder. Good idea.

Thank You.

Coach Roslyn,

My time spent in your class has been very informative and helpful. You have helped me with my nervous tics. You helped me develop a much-needed wardrobe, researching some clothing online with me.

I enjoyed my public speaking exercise in class, and am impressed that you liked my voice! Table Etiquette instruction was interesting and I mostly enjoyed our Dining Tutorial luncheon!

All in all, it was a most enjoyable class.

Thank you.
