A passionate and dedicated professional director and acting teacher with a wealth of experience working with young people within performing arts and my own professional theatre company

Methodology

Firm but fair and extremely encouraging. I work with the individual’s specific talents and needs in order to bring out the best in them!

Experience

My aim is to use Performing Arts to encourage creativity, self expression and confidence and to get people through the most complex of auditions!

With drama school training, professional directing experience and experience in tutoring children for West End Theatre roles (previous students have appeared in, Matilda, School of Rock, etc...) I am extremely well qualified.

I have 17 years of teaching experience and have worked with a range of ages and abilities.

I aim to encourage anyone from beginner level right through to professional to perform to the best of their ability, by exploring a range of techniques.

Being one the most talented actresses I have had the privilege to watch in the theatre, Jess also has plenty of experience in the world of directing for theatre. The ability to both perform and direct as such a professional level makes Jess an incredible tutor for those wishing to develop their skills in acting and I am so personally thankful for the impact she has had on my own acting career. Thank you Jess! Alice Kettle

Jessica has been working with numerous clients from the Hampstead Dyslexia over the years. She teaches singing, dance and drama. I have seen students flourish in their capabilities and in their confidence. She is upbeat, adaptable - whether a child needs to prepare for an audition or just needs the fun/ self esteem that acting brings, Jess is our first recommendation at the Hampstead Dyslexia Clinic. She is currently teaching two students, one tap dancing ( what has been achieved in a few months would have , no doubt, taken many, many more in a classroom setting), and the other is auditioning for an acting school, so Jessica is tutoring her for the dance, singing and drama! Jessica is punctual, diligent, a joy to be around and the kids, from ages 7 to 17, love her lessons!!
