 My lesson was a very pleasant time. Margaret is the perfect teacher for me : she's friendly, encouraging, skilful, conscientious ... and we've got a lot in common.

About me - English

I have 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. I was a teacher in a Further Education college. Now the wonderful technology we have means that I can go back to the job I loved, teaching English language - and all from my own home in Scotland!

I enjoy working in my garden and going on long walks. I have recently started learning Spanish, so I know how it feels to learn a new language! My German is good enough to use as a support language in teaching. I also speak French, but much less fluently.

Qualifications & Experience

I have now taught hundreds of lessons online to people of many different nationalities, and at all levels from beginners (A1.1) to advanced level (C1.1). I have helped learners to prepare for the Cambridge B2 exam, IELTS, and also job interviews.

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 a 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.
