For eight years I taught English to adults in Nuremberg, organizing English language training programmes for firms and teaching at all levels from beginners to advanced.
For the City of Nuremberg’s ‘Bildungszentrum’, I’ve run specialised seminars on Speaking and Presenting in English, The Language of Meetings, English Pronunciation, and workshops on cross cultural awareness and on Scottish culture. Among other qualifications I have two Diplomas in Teaching English as a Foreign Language.

 

 

 


Before working in Germany, I taught modern languages at secondary schools in Scotland for 20 years. I was born in Scotland and hold an MA Honours degree in German from the University of Aberdeen and am a qualified teacher of German and French, currently registered as a member of the Scottish Teaching Council.

Working in Germany has taught me to have every sympathy with adults who, on top of a busy professional life, are also expected to find time to improve their English , an essential professional tool for present-day international communication.

All my courses are tailored to the specific needs of the learners. But I also want to make learning a pleasure. I believe that the best stimulation is to put learners in contact with real native speakers in their home environment. That’s why I’m organising study holidays and short courses in the beautiful little town of Bridge of Allan where I live, offering visits and excursions as well as language teaching, an insight into Scottish life today, and a chance to meet my friends and neighbours and people with whom my students share professional interests.
