@Saqib Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus is a senecan tragedy (verified with a simple google search). Many of his history plays are also tragedies, like Antony and Cleopatra.

Linguistics portion can be prepared easily since there are books available, like George Yule's. Anyone who has a degree in English Language and Literature will find it easy to do that portion.

The professional portion was relatively easy, so that no preparation was required. They were some general statements on what a good teacher should be like.
