Our lives revolve around communication, yet we’re rarely given the necessary tools to speak with ease, clarity, and impact. I teach a unique system of techniques to help executives, academics, and other professionals uncover their natural ability to captivate an audience.

I help clients tell engaging stories, develop a confident physical presence, improve vocal clarity and diction, and speak from the heart. Clients uses these skills in all areas of life: from high stakes presentations, to job interviews, to dating.

Clients can choose to work short-term to prepare for a specific speech or interview, for a few months to address a particular habit or skill, or indefinitely; there are always new skills to uncover.

About Jennie

I am a lifelong actor who is passionate about helping clients uncover their natural ability to captivate an audience. I work with both professional performers; and with executives, academics, and anyone seeking to communicate with power, ease, and authenticity. I hold an MFA from the Academy for

A truly gifted instructor. I came to Jennie with zero acting experience. She was able to patiently and carefully guide me to focus on my scene and most importantly how to RELAX and let the scene flow. Her knowledge of acting techniques and tips is unparalleled. She teaches you how to look at the scene as a whole and truly understand what your character is feeling. I highly recommend Jennie to anyone who is interested in learning more about acting.

It was my daughter's first contact with professional acting.
She has been talking about being an actress for quite a while now, so we decided to let her take a few lessons to see if she likes it.
Ollie was really comprehensive of our needs and made us see the big picture of that world... just what we needed, to start walking into that direction on the right path.
My daughter had a wonderful time with Ollie.
Kristyl N.
I booked 4 acting sessions with Ms. Ollie for my daughter. Ms. Ollie did a phenomenal job starting from scratch, coaching my daughter for her up coming audition. My daughter had no acting experience, she was shy, and soft spoken but in just 4 short days, Ms. Ollie turned her into a confident, outspoken young actress. My daughter nailed her audition thanks to Ollie!! I will highly recommend her as your acting coach.

Great person to work with! Cheerful. Listens to what you have to say. Ready to help you improve.

My experience with this tutor was great! Despite my schedule mishap the other day, he was considerate enough to reschedule. will see you next week with math.
shannon J.
Had so much problem with my basics. Akib has been patient and helped me clear things out. thanks a bunch!
Caleb L.
This tutor does not fill the total time paid for. If the student has no more questions, rather than structuring the lesson like other tutors he will simply finish early! I am sure he is very knowledgable, but his accent is very strong, making learning a newer subject harder through trying to understand new words with a strong accent.
A fan was constantly ticking in the background, and he admitted his internet connection was poor.

I work with students on SAT Reading, SAT Writing & Language and Essay. Students that work with me should expect significant improvement in one session.

For Reading, I teach time management, reading strategies and the appropriate way to search for the correct answers. For W/L, time management is key, as is an understanding as to how to approach this section. Knowledge of grammar (I teach this) is critical to this section, but so is reading.

I work with students and teach them how to decipher the passage for the Essay and how to write a five paragraph essay in the short time frame that will score well.

About Rebecca

I believe that each student I work with has the potential to achieve greatness. I make sure that students know that these tests are important for college, but that the numbers should not define them. I always see great progress on the college prep (ACT and SAT), I also really enjoy working with stu

In its basic conceptual form, Algebra is a form of Mathematics with an equation and variables. An equation is "solved" when the values on either side of the = sign are balanced, and the variables bing an equation to life!

Curriculum will be discussed with the student so as to understand goals and co-create a pathway for learning.

A long term goal of mine is to help students gain new skills and self confidence to inspire future learning!

4 Reasons Why Good Writers Succeed at Work

The global workplace has made communicators of us all. Irrespective of field, job level, experience, or knowing everything there is to know about getting your job done, having only specialized knowledge will not take you very far in the long run – you need to be a competent professional communicator too. While corporate communication consists of verbal, listening, and written skills, the latter tops the list as rudimentary for most jobs. Good grammar and writing skills are more than just an a …
