US Grade 4 - 6
Students will receive a fun introduction to Shakespeare, his birthplace, the theater venues he worked in, and the work he created.  Learners will have the opportunity to direct the path of conversation and will work on learning a sonnet, specifically Sonnet 18.  The iambic pentameter of Sonnet 18 will be discussed and practiced as well.
Since the age of ten I've been performing on stage and have acted in several works of Shakespeare throughout Pennsylvania, Delaware, and in Toronto, Canada.  Favorite roles played are Feste in "12th Night", Puck in "A Midsummer Night's Dream", and Bassanio in "The Merchant of Venice."  In 2007 I studied Shakespeare in Oxford, England and had the pleasure of experiencing his work at the Globe Theater, Royal Shakespeare Company, and Blackfriars theater.  I will be happy to share photos and stories of these experiences.  Today I work mostly as a voice over actor and private tutor that aspires to inspire the same passion I hold for literature in the hearts of others and open up the world to them like it did me.

In this section, conversation may lead toward shocking actions within the plays of Shakespeare.  His work possesses murder (Macbeth), betrayal (Othello), and people being baked into pies then fed to guests at a dinner party (Titus Andronicus.)  These are simply examples and care will be taken to not scare but inspire interest and make learning memorable.  Class sizes are kept very small so students get focused attention and instruction.
