About me

I am sorry, but due to my work schedule and the number of students I teach, I am not able to accept any new students at the moment.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused!

Kind regards,

Margaret

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

Last class, we talked about my personal experiences in the trip I had made last month. I enjoyed the talk because Margaret is an affable teacher who encourages you to feel comfortable speaking in English.
