1Will you help me improve my English marks?
Yes, we will do our best to give you all the knowledge and tools you need to succeed! However, you should be prepared to do some hard work –
we promise it'll be worth it!
2What else do you teach?
In addition to all things English, we also teach Latin and Classical Greek. Please contact us on 0401 005 878 for more information.
3Do you teach online lessons?
Although we prefer teaching lessons in person, we do offer online lessons for both private students and small groups.
For private students, we use a combination of Zoom and Google Drive.
For small groups, we use a combination of Zoom and OpenLearning. We've put together a trial lesson on OpenLearning you can join – just click here
. Contact us at 0401 005 878 for the free access code.
4Do you offer trials?
We offer paid trials for one lesson before asking you to commit to a term. Due to our busy schedules, we usually offer paid trials for private lessons during the holidays. If you are new to Shakespeare Academy, we recommend you take one of our school holiday classes.
5Why can’t I start by enrolling in an Essay Writing class? Why must I learn poetry or Shakespeare first?
We can teach you the essay structure in 10 seconds: introduction, body, and conclusion. There – now you can write an essay.
The more challenging (and exciting!) question is what to write in your essays. This requires you to identify literary techniques and analyse their effects – skills you can only learn in our poetry classes.
And what’s the relationship between poetry and Shakespeare? A large percentage of Shakespeare is poetry! BOOM!
6I have learnt poetry elsewhere – how do I know you’ll teach me something new?
We use a list of literary techniques our founder Dr Lin put together to teach her second-year university students in the UK, because they were struggling with literary analysis. If you already have these mad English skills, you certainly don’t need us to help you improve!
7Can you help me with my maths/physics/chemistry?
8Can you help me with my non-English essays or bits of writing not for school?
Certainly! We have expertise in personal essays/statements, writing/speaking competitions, and other Humanities subjects such as History and Music. Contact us on 0401 005 878 for more information.
9Why are my English marks so bad? :(
Because you’re wasting your time stalking this site! Now go do some proper work!
