Shakespeare for Secondary Students

Book Now (


If Shakespeare feels like a foreign language.....

Fear not, Tamara’s Tuition has designed a three hour workshop just for you.

If you are studying Shakespeare and are in year 11 or 12 this is the workshop to answer all your questions.

Unlock the code and discover the elusive beauty of Shakespeare.

If you are studying Macbeth or Hamlet you need to be at this workshop.

In three hours we will:

  • make sense of Shakespeare’s language
  • understand the importance of context
  • explain the major themes and characterisation
  • emulate Shakespeare’s writing for imaginative response assessment

After this workshop you will have the methods to decode Shakespeare and you will feel confident about your assessments.

Participant numbers are limited to ensure students receive individualised attention.

This workshop is led by Tamara Playne, a registered secondary English teacher, experienced in helping students of all levels improve their English.

Students should bring along their current assessment tasks and will work on their assessment on the day.

The workshop will take place at The Space at Wynnum, which is an excellent air-conditioned learning environment.
