You've come to the right place! Welcome to "Everything You Need To Know About Shakespeare: Basics"
Shakespeare's works are often portrayed in a way that makes students (and even adults) groan. In this course, we will go straight into the basics of Shakespeare, ranging from his history, his career and of course his works. We will recognize key elements that distinguish his writing and how he fits in the current scope of how the English language is now. The terminology, structure and themes of his works will be discussed.
*** This course is not for those looking for a comprehensive understanding of Shakespeare or his individual plays (this may be offered soon though in another course). This is focused on having a solid foundation to various aspects of Shakespeare and being exposed to emergent terminology. ***
This course will have exercises and visuals to facilitate and make the most out of your learning.
Testing the waters? No worries! Udemy offers a 30-day money back guarantee for those who are still on the fence. What are you waiting for?

Words are precious and to appreciate them in its fullest detail is the best thing you can do for yourself
Hi! You can call me William and I am here to help you realize your potential whether it be in your academic field or professional workplace. I obtained my B.A in English (with a minor in Psychology) and I have 7 years of combined experience as a private tutor, English lab assistant, web content writer and more. I am currently studying my CELTA and will later be doing my BEd at UBC. I have edited papers, created proposal letters for companies such as the SPCA and helped students realize their own potential with their university application profiles. I have helped others that needed help with letters of appeal as well as with many pieces of famous English literature.
Aside from the more rigorous tasks of academic and professional writing, I also find happiness in my creative writing. As a former Writing and Creative Writing student, I am well versed in the many structures and formats of how to make a story beautiful and effective. I have written two Shakespearean plays on scientific phenomena: DNA replication and sleep. In the future, I have plans to share the power of storytelling, so stay tuned through my social media.
I hope to share my love for literature and writing with all of you. Let's have a good one!
