“It seems too easy to say that Jamie is a GREAT coach. What makes Jamie great is her ability to stay focused on what's important, appropriate and meaningful insights, a heart-felt connection and a commitment to her clients that goes beyond a weekly call or meeting. Jamie sends me emails during the week as a way of reminding me she is there for me AND to keep me focused.”

“Life coaching with Jamie has been life-changing. And I mean that in the most sincere and honest way possible. There has been a focus; a determination and a narrowing sense of what my core values and goals are with the guidance and assistance of Jamie’s coaching.

I recommend her to any and all individuals I come into contact with, because she’s THAT good.” – Joel Daniels. Poet, actor, Media Branding

She has the uncanny ability of being able to pull from places within the actor the actor themselves may not have been aware existed. She is a gentle, yet firm teacher. She has a sharp eye, and is a great motivator. She is understanding, flexible, a great listener.I highly recommend Jamie Winnick as your guide!"

"Jamie Winnick is a wonderful dramatic coach. She recently helped me immensely with a role in an episode of a popular television series, and it was invaluable. She gives an actor on-target tips on analyzing one's character, the relationships to fellow characters in the scene, and very important to me: listening more productively." – Katherine Argo, actress
"I first studied with Jamie Winnick when I went to La Guardia High School. She never judged or compared us to one another. Our classroom environment was extremely safe and humbling. She gave me the confidence and freedom that allowed me to explore my character in and out. If we were stuck or having trouble getting into the flow, her questions helped us get where we needed to be. The way she was able to break down a script and help us relate to a character was almost like a scientific method or finally understanding algebra once you know the formulas to solve for X. She made it really simple and fun to live in the moment and inspired me to be the greatest actor I could be. There is something about having such a supportive teacher/director who truly loves what they do and has no ulterior motive. I highly recommend Jamie Winnick as a teacher, and director." – Nicole Clouse, actor

" – Joe Muzikar, actor

"Jamie Winnick is a creative and talented arts educator with a flair for inspiring students. Regardless of a student's age, ability or background Jamie has a unique way of finding the right approach to involve the student in the learning process while at the same time building self esteem, cooperative behavior and respect for others."
– Fawn Wilson White, International Chairman of Friends of the Certosa di Capri / Amici della Certosa di Capri
"When asked to serve as a professor for CUNY/CAT's United Arab Emirates partnership, Jamie did not offer a knee jerk "yes," but vetted the position thoroughly before she accepted it. She understood the challenges and complexities of working with our students and wanted to make sure she was the right "fit." It was emblematic of the thought and care she brought to her teaching -- and she was most definitely the right fit to lead the "Literacy, Drama and Dramatic Writing" course."
