Shakespeare One on One Tutoring
Esther Williamson, MFA
Whether you're acting, reading, or writing a paper on Shakespeare, you'll get expert guidance from a classically trained actor and Shakespeare scholar
Shakespeare represents one of the pillars of the Western literary canon. Most people have to study Shakespeare at some point in their education, whether they like it or not. Many learners love and are fascinated by Shakespeare, but others have trouble understanding the confusing plots and connecting to the complex, old-fashioned language. Sometimes learners just need a guide to help them build a foundation so they can understand and enjoy Shakespeare's works, or at least get through the plays...
I am a classical actor and teaching artist. In addition to performing many of Shakespeare's plays, I have taught Shakespeare to high school and middle school students for the past 20 years in many different settings, from single-day workshops to two-week camps to semester-long classes. I have been a teaching artist in theatres around the US, including the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, The Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington DC, Imagination Stage in Maryland, and others. I was adjunct faculty for two years at Seattle Pacific University, where I directed the University Players, a touring troupe that wrote two scripts per year and toured them to high schools, churches, and community spaces throughout the Pacific Northwest. Degrees earned: BA, Theatre and English, Seattle Pacific University MFA, Classical Acting, The Shakespeare Theatre Company/George Washington University
0The learner will need a copy of the text they are working on. They should let me know ahead of time which play they wish to discuss so that I can prepare. If they are working on just a portion of a play, please provide act and scene number.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Shakespeare's plays tend to address big themes and big emotions. They frequently depict violence, trauma, and, in a few cases, racist acts and ideas. They also depict the best of the human spirit: love, honor, kindness, faith, hope. Difficult subject matter will be handled with care.
