Hello, my name is Margaret Dick and I'm 58 years old and currently living in United Kingdom. I am a native English speaker and teach English. I have taught online with Verbalplanet.com since September 2016. I can speak the following languages fluently: English, German. I am currently offering a free initial trial lesson for new students.

Detailed Profile in English

About me

I am new to Verbal Planet, but having been teaching online since March 2014. About thirty years ago I worked abroad - in Germany, Austria and Singapore - as a young English teacher. I loved the work, but missed Scotland. At that time there were not many opportunities to teach English language here, so I changed to teaching Communication Skills to adults with learning difficulties. Now the wonderful technology we have means that I can go back to the job I loved, teaching English - and all from my own home in Scotland!

I enjoy working in my garden and going on long walks - I live near a beautiful coastline. I am also a member of my local film club.

Qualifications & Experience

I have now taught hundreds of lessons online at all levels from beginners (A1.1) to advanced level (C1.1). I have taught people of many different nationalities - among them, German, French, Spanish, Thai, Korean and Japanese.

I have received very positive feedback from my students - my style is relaxed, but I like lessons to have structure and purpose.

My qualifications - I have an Master of Arts (Honours) degree in German and a Master of Science degree in Adult Education (both Glasgow University). I also have a certificate in English Language teaching.

Teaching Approach

I will give you -

* a free trial lesson to find out about you, your learning goals and interests

* a structured course plan for blocks of 5 or more lessons

* productive lessons taught in a fun and encouraging way

* a friendly and efficient service at all times

After each lesson you will receive -

* written feedback

* a vocabulary list with examples

* a summary of the main grammar points from the lesson

* homework (if you would like to do homework)

* prompt correction of homework

I continued reading and summarising short stories by Saki. As always I enjoy having classes and conversations with Margaret because she is an excellent teacher.

I had the opportunity to analyse two short stories by Saki. It was a good exercise to keep improving my English and also a convenient way to learn new words and to understand how the language works. Thank you, Margaret!

I enjoyed the last lesson very much because I had the opportunity to get corrected the synopsis I wrote about two short stories I had read previously. Margaret is an excellent teacher.
