"Jen is a wonderful little treasure that I wish I could carry around in my back pocket, especially when preparing for a big audtion. She has the ability to pick out things you would have never thought of and works with you until you feel confident in your choices. It is a joy to work with her, as I've done countless times, and it has always paid off".

"Jennifer Restivo took my auditioning to a whole new level. She is patient, insightful, and smart as a whip. My work was general and bland when we first started and by the end of our first session, we had a nuanced, sensitive and dynamic scene. She helped me get inside the character, work on pacing, motivations, and most of all, I had a great time. Oh, yeah, also, I got a callback. I recommend her to anyone working on a part, an audition or just working for fun - wherever you are, she will help you go deeper".

"I have been a professional actor for almost 26 years. Over those years, have worked with many different acting coaches, some very prestigious, and Jennifer Restivo brings something different, original, and edgy to the table. Her intricate and careful way of working has helped me prepare so confidently that I can really play, and be organic in my work, truly bringing out the best in me and in the material. As a coach, Jen has the perfect balance of warm-hearted support and no-excuse grit that gives her clients all of the confidence they need to step into a room with a casting director, producer, etc and not just book, but grab the role, give it individuality and blow people away in any audition room or situation".
