Perfect! Jessica is a great tutor. She is very knowledgeable and enjoys to teach people. Every class is fun and I learn a lot!

J
Jessica's response

David is a great student. He works hard in classes and outside of classes, is never late to our Skype sessions and has improved his ability to communicate and soften his accent over the last few months.

Michael

Perfect! Jessica is a first class top of the range accomplished teacher. She is results focused and tailors her teaching sessions to the specific needs of the student. She achieved wonderful results in a short time helping my Thai wife soften her Thai English pronunciation thus making her better understood in a social conversation locally. The secret of her success, my guess, is her starting point of making the student feel relaxed and most at ease before and during each session. She deserves and has my unreserved highest recommendation. Michael

J
Jessica's response

Michael and Sandra are a lovely couple. Sandra has been coming to me for private lessons to soften her Thai accent. She is doing well and Michael has been helping her practice during the weeks.

Jessica is an enormously accomplished dialect and voice coach who has helped me with a great deal of specialist accent work. I have found her delightful, and professional, and so full of joy for her subject matter that the lessons fly by. With Jessica's help, I have secured a number of callbacks specifically that I know I wouldn't have gotten otherwise. I can't recommend Jessica enough!

Pick her!

Jess is an exceptional communicator and invaluable presentation tutor. We've done a number of pre-important-presentation-sessions and they have been absolutely invaluable. Jess doesn't just tell you what a good presentation should be, she's able to deeply empathise with youraudience, identify faux pas, help shape structure for understanding and teach delivery for impact. I would highly recommend Jess to any one who is about to do an important presentation and I look forward to working with her i

Jessica Tobert is not only completely inspirational, she makes you feel completely safe to explore and push oneself through the rather intimate journey of vocal self discovery. This links seamlessly into text work.
Jessica has helped me greatly in preparation with audition speeches, and I came away with vocal exercises and warm ups, that aide me with my day to day life as a jobbing actress. I highly recommend her as one of the most down to earth vocal coaches I've had the pleasure to work with.
