About Jessica

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have extensively worked with children. While at university I helped out with many Summer Courses where I had to teach pupil (age 11-18) music. I was also a volunteer Choir Assistant for the St Catharine's College, Cambridge Girls' choir, where I taught singing and theory to girls (aged 7 - 14).

I became the Head of Music at College Francais Billingue Londres a French international school where I taught the whole school classroom Music and organised extra curricular activities. Since then I have been privately tutoring a variety of subjects and conducting Nightingale Choir.
