I teach the English you need - whether grammar correction, functional English, exam preparation, or specific language for business or medical professions.
I believe in building a firm foundation, you need to know your basics, but there is a lot of everyday language that you don't find in books, so I like to cover that as well.
Teacher, traveller, scribbler
Combining my love of language and travel with my professional communications skills, I chose to complete my CELTA (Cambridge) English language teacher training several years ago and it's proved to have been a wonderful experience so far.
Working with students from all around the globe, I have tons of experience teaching online or in person, and have also taught numerous hybrid classes. My students have ranged in age from 8 years old to over 70 years - so you are never too young or too old to learn English!
I thrive on seeing my students make progress with their English skills and the best part is seeing them become able to express themselves and show their true personalities, as well as attain their professional or study goals.
Whilst "book study" is vital for creating a strong foundation, I like to include lessons on everyday language, and expose students to English accents and colloquialisms from countries around the world.
Comedy and music also make lessons more fun!
Another passion I have is working with OET candidates - medical professionals who have qualified abroad and who are taking the OET exam in order to be able to return to their professional role in an English speaking country. Our health workers have never been more important.
For business people, I have professional communications experience in PR, media, marketing, copy writing, journalism, graphics and editing. I understand what companies need from managers and employees regarding written and verbal communications.

Sheridan was my English teacher for 4 months. She is a really good teacher. At the begining I was A2-B1 and now I'm a b2 certificate and I can easily understand and speak with an English person. Several months later my last course, I called her because I needed some help with an examen. And she helps me. So if you have to take an English teacher, you must take Sheridan !!!
I´m from Brazil and I had an opportunity to study English with Sheridan when I visited London, 3 years ago, and after that, when I had classes with her by Skype. I would like to highlight her professionalism, consistency, and preparation to understand different cultures. She is also able to fit the classes according to the student level offering the right support and giving good advice to develop the student performance.
Sheridan is an English teacher who’s caring about student progression and she try to help her students to be better by adjust the way how to build them. Since I learned with her, I feel comfortable to speak with the native speaker. It’s not only learn with her in the classroom, but she willing to help us to understand everything around me as social programs that the school provide this activities for students.
