Happy New Year, parents and students! 

News

New Tutors


We are pleased to introduce two new tutors at Shakespeare Academy: Ms Alice Wilkins and Ms Monica Kim.
Ms Alice Wilkins holds a BA in Modern History from Macquarie University, and is currently studying a Masters in Primary Teaching at the University of Sydney. She decided to pursue teaching after realising that her initial study in Law did not ignite enough passion to carry her through a legal career.
Ms Wilkins has over 4 years' experience in tutoring primary and secondary school students. She has taught the previous HSC syllabus. Alice is a big fan of all things sci-fi, and loves Neal Stephenson books. Her favourite Shakespeare play is either Macbeth or Hamlet. She is also an avid fan of disaster movies - the more far-fetched the better! 

Ms Wilkins loves teaching literature and particularly enjoys focusing on the relationship between context and meaning. She has a broad education in Law, History, English, Media, and Sociology. Ms Wilkins strongly believes in the value of general knowledge and aims to impart this passion on her students. 
Monica Kim is a former pupil of Shakespeare Academy who graduated in 2018 with an ATAR of 98.05. Ms Kim is studying for a Bachelor of Psychology at the University of Sydney and is enrolled as a Dalyell Scholar. She wishes to work with children in the future, either as a children’s clinical psychologist or a school counsellor. 
Ms Kim has 2 years’ experience providing private tuition to primary school students. She has received extensive teacher training at Shakespeare Academy, and has taught both classes and private students with us. Her favourite writers include Frances Hodgson Burnett, Shaun Tan, Amy Tan, and Maya Angelou.

Ms Kim believes in the importance and excitement of understanding what a text truly means. Thus, she likes to teach English comprehension as it allows students to reflect on and understand the texts at a high level. She strives to embody Maya Angelou’s quote: ‘When you learn, teach. When you get, give.’

Child-Safe Policy

We are committed to making Shakespeare Academy a learning institution of quality and integrity. To that end, we have compiled a Child-Safe Policy.

We also hold public liability insurance and workers insurance policies – all these (boring) bits and bobs that make Shakespeare’s plays fascinating in comparison!

Giveaways

Battery Packs

To celebrate a brand new year of school, we are giving away three battery packs – your phones and devices will never be out of juice again!

The giveaway is open to all students currently enrolled in Shakespeare Academy, and students on hiatus who have attended for a total of two terms in the past.

To enter, simply leave us a Google review containing at least 50 words. If you have already left a review for us, then you are automatically entered into the draw.

We will draw three winners on Sunday 3 March at 3pm, so please make sure your reviews are in by then.

If you’re a new student this term and feel you need more time at Shakespeare Academy to form an opinion about us, there’s no pressure to enter this time – we have another giveaway planned for later this year.

Good luck, and have fun writing those reviews!
