Information About Jenny - Twickenham teacher - (5 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Jenny:
I trained as a singer before studying at the International Centre for Voice at Central School of Speech and Drama in London.
I have worked with people of all ages and nationalities helping with "accent reduction", presentation skills and English pronunciation skills.
After making a dialect analysis of the things you need to work on, we'll tailor your sessions together week by week, to work where you need to most, to help you towards a more authentic Neutral Standard English sound. We work with the "big picture" (eg the tune of the language etc… ) and the details (eg vowel shapes and consonants etc… ) to get some practical balance, and to make your learning as fun as possible. Audio material is provided so you can also practice at home.

See you on Wednesday
During this time Jenny has developed a course of tuition and related exercises which I feel has been very much geared to my individual needs, combining all the benefits of different approaches including the Qi Gong system, grounding and breathing exercises, and actual voice work.
I really appreciate Jenny’s personal teaching style which to me is a very effective combination of sympathetic and patient, yet no-nonsense. I’ve also found her to be extremely knowledgeable both practically and theoretically: for example when working in-depth on the Qi Gong exercises she has been immediately able to observe the small physical changes I need to make to improve continuously and I’ve seen positive results, some unexpected including sleeping better. I’ve also learnt so much about the theory of breathing and the changes I can make to do it more effectively. We recently began work on a specific presentation and again I’ve feel I’ve very much benefited from Jenny’s individual attention to make real improvements to the quality of content and delivery. In addition she has always taken the time to email follow-up notes as memory joggers after sessions.
As someone fast-approaching the age of 50, bad posture, poor breathing and voice habits had crept in and taken hold over my life-time: Jenny’s teaching and support have really helped me to recognise and start to replace these with much more positive and productive routines. I've really enjoyed my coaching sessions which seem to fly by and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jenny as a tutor to anyone looking for help in these areas.
