She has been teaching for 10 years and currently runs the Education department of a theatre in the North West of England.

In this class we will explore some of the supernatural themes and their importance in Shakespeare's Macbeth.  Students will focus on Macbeth throughout this class but will learn skills which can be applied to a range of Shakespeare's work - perfect for students studying another play. This will help students to understand the language used by Shakespeare in both his sonnets and plays.

The skills students learn in this class can also be applied to other texts across their English studies and give them confidence in answering exam questions.
