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!
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.

Jessica is a passionate and inspiring tutor with a vast and in-depth knowledge of her specialities. I’ve taught alongside her for many years and witnessed the effect she’s had on both children and adults - helping boost their confidence and inspiring fun while learning and developing in a supportive, encouraging environment.
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
