About the lesson
My teaching approach is one which will empower you to learn and use English with confidence. Your lessons will be personalised to meet your needs. If you want to enhance your Business English, I can help you to feel confident and fluent at work whether it's in public speaking, negotiations or simply writing an email quickly! For example, if you need to negotiate in English - we will look at the techniques needed for this and then learn the language that help these techniques. For instance, we might look at Open and Closed Questions.
If you are an exam student, I will ensure that you get practice in exam TECHNIQUES as well as improving your English in all the skills.
If you are someone who would prefer Conversation lessons, then I will use the conversation to expand your understanding of grammar and vocabulary but also ensure confident pronunciation and fluency.
In all my lessons, pronunciation and error correction play a strong role as it is important that you can express yourself in English clearly and confidently.

Perfect! She is an amazing tutor. She is knowledgeable and has great tools. I highly recommend her.
Perfect! I really enjoyed Sheila’s class! Not only is she a wonderful teacher, but spending time with her is actually really fun! Since I had little time left before my exam, her flexibility and short reaction time were incredibly helpful. Sheila helped me to put the finishing touches on my English before my C2 exam and I am sure that everyone, regardless of their level of English, will benefit from her lessons. She is more than worth her money because her extensive preparation and follow-up work are just impeccable! Would totally recommend her lessons to anyone!
Ich habe Sheilas Unterricht sehr genossen! Sie ist nicht nur eine wunderbare Lehrerin, sondern es macht auch einfach Spass mit ihr Zeit zu verbringen! Da mir vor meiner Prüfung nur noch wenig Zeit zur Verfügung stand, war ihre Flexibilität und ihre kurze Reaktionszeit ein grosser Vorteil. Mir persönlich hat sie geholfen meinem Englisch vor dem C2 noch den letzen Feinschliff zu geben und ich bin mir sicher, dass jeder, unabhänging vom Level an Englisch, von ihrem Unterricht profitieren kann. Sheila ist ihr Geld allemal Wert, denn ihre umfängliche Vor- und Nachbereitung könnte man wo anders kaum bezahlen! Würde Sie jedem weiterempfehlen!
J’ai adoré les leçons avec Sheila. Non seulement c’est une excellente enseignante, mais c’est aussi amusant de passer du temps avec elle! Comme je disposais de peu de temps avant mon examen, leur flexibilité et leur temps de réaction rapide ont été un atout majeur. Personnellement, elle m’a aidé à peaufiner mon anglais avant le C2 et je suis sûr que tout le monde, quel que soit le niveau d’anglais, peut bénéficier de ses cours. Sheila vaut plus que son argent, sa préparation et son suivi sont fantastiques. Je la recommanderais à tout le monde!
Perfect! Sheila is a wonderful tutor! Very accommodating, flexible and easy going. I only had 2 weeks left before my exam and she worked out the exact program that made me feel confident going into an examination room. Very knowledgeable, brilliantly explains materials and has plenty of tricks up her sleeve to make the lesson productive. I couldn't recommend Sheila enough! Thank you for all your support!
Perfect! Sheila has been helping me with my Business English needs, and I am very happy with her teaching approach. She took the time to understand my specific needs and adjusted her teaching accordingly. I would highly recommend her to any ESL learner.
Perfect! Ich habe sehr freundliche, zuvorkommende Lehrerin mit viel Erfahrung in Englischunterricht auch für Erwachsene gefunden. Ich habe eine Lehrerin mit einer perfekten (Britisch)englischen Aussprache gesucht um auch mündlicher Ausdruck zu üben und Sheila ist genau die richtige Lehrerin dafür. Ich fühle mich bei Sheila sicher, dass ich meine (Business) Englisch Kenntnisse erheblich verbessere.

I found that Sheila understood my language needs straightway. Despite being knowledgeable in English, my accuracy with spoken English needs work. Sheila and I are working on the accuracy mainly through conversation classes and targeted exercises. I felt that since the first lesson I was able to improve and I look forwards to each lesson.
Sheila has a very good knowledge about the CPE test. We worked on writing, speaking and use of English skills and she gave me some useful exercises and support. I could really benefit from the lessons! She is very friendly and reliable. If you are looking for a superprof, you've already found her! :)
Sheila was my English teacher back in 2013/2014. I enjoyed her lessons once a week. We started with typical lessons and Sheila guided me safely through the maze of english language. On my request we turned our lessons into converstaion only, which helped me a lot. It was always good fun and I was looking forward to every single lesson. Sheila is very capable to interact and tailormade lessons to student's specific needs. I can warmly recommend Sheila to everyone who is interested in English language.
Sheila is a great teacher and helped me in achieving my goals. I strongly recommend Sheila.
Sheila has been just a wonderful teacher! She helped me to prepare for job interviews, as well as for my Ielts exam - I’m so thankful! Our lessons were fun and I felt like she adjusted the pace to suit me, which I really appreciated.
Sheila was an excellent teacher! The lessons were interesting, well structured, and I learnt a lot - especially about pronounciation which was a challenge for me in the past. I really enjoyed her lessons and ultimately she helped me to pass my CAE exam! I cant recommend her more!
I had lessons with Sheila last year to prepare for my Ielts exam - she really helped me to improve my writing and speaking skills. I achieved a 7.
Sheila is a very good Business English teacher. We practiced for meeting and presentations, she helped me gaining confidence at international on-line meetings for my work, it was very useful.
Really reliable, professional and friendly lessons with a great teacher!
Sheila is a very professional and patient teacher with a sense of humour. On top of providing proof-reading services for job applications I have written, she has worked with me to improve my professional English writing skills to fine tune my CV and write cover letters and job applications. I really noticed how the skills she taught me in this context, improved my English communication in a more general sense. Thank you Sheila!
Sheila is one of the most professional teachers I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Hardworking, committed, trustworthy and flexible, she was an integral part of the school's senior teaching team. The school's sophisticated culture and its thriving community was very much a credit to Sheila's dedication, high personal and professional standards, caring personality and her organisation and leadership skills. The lessons carried out by Sheila were always well planned and expertly executed. She is ambitious, creative, has excellent communication skills and the quiet confidence to face any challenge. Her highly positive student reviews always underlined her commitment, her calm manner and her genuine keen interest in the students' learning, development and wellbeing.
I have worked with Sheila for over 20 years. She is an experienced and professional teacher who pays great attention to detail. She is also very kind and friendly. For these reasons I would 100% recommend Sheila as an English teacher.
