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!
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.
Jessica is an incredible voice teacher who really listens to you and adjusts the exercises accordingly. She has taught me things I never learnt in drama school and I got really quick results as well as feeling great about my voice instrument again. Would thoroughly, thoroughly recommend!
I wish to thank Jessica for her wonderful services. Her input in our students vocal / character development was invaluable. All of the students who worked with her were motivated and inspired to practice the professional approaches that she equipped them with and owing to this, and her compassionately supportive approach, they kept coming back for more. Her knowledge, professionalism and enthusiasm was faultless and she has a profound impact on those she works with.
Jessica is a fantastic tutor, not only does Jessica help give you ideas she also give you a lot of confidence when you take the exam.
Jessica has been helping me in English for a few lessons now, and she has made my confidence and writing to rise so much more in English, making me learn new techniques to improve my writing and language skills, helping me with plannings for controlled assessments and helping me to practice how to build good and effective paragraphs when it comes to the written exam. I personally, highly recommend her to anybody who struggles in English and I personally also think she's an awesome tutor.
Jessica has been tutoring my daughter for her GCSE drama studies, she has proven herself to be a highly capable tutor who goes out of her way to provide my daughter with excellent resources and the skills to answer even the most difficult questions, she is caring and intelligent with a lovely disposition, my daughter looks forward to her lessons now and can understand what is required of her, which is mainly due to Jessica's tutoring and obvious love of the topic.
I was more than fortunate to come across Jessica's profile back in April 2012. From the moment I sent her my initial email, there was both an element of professionalism and caring. The amount of effort and detail she put into my 12 lesson's between April and late May was second to none. During lesson's I found that she had a very cool and relaxed attitude. After my lesson's with Jessica I got 78% and my grade jumped from a D to a B and I was accepted to the university of Southampton.
