About our Language School

ProPlus English was launched in May 2013 as a small private tuition school. Since then we have grown and expanded and taught English to hundreds of people. We are now Sheffield’s oldest independent Language School and we are grateful to all our students over the years for their 5-star reviews and spreading the word to their friends and family.
We teach English in a relaxed and friendly way while remaining professional and efficient. As a husband and wife team we can offer you something nobody else does – we teach together! You will get two highly-qualified tutors during your course.
Not only are you going to learn English with us, you will also learn a lot about British culture. We want to help you improve your life here in the UK, not just your language skills.

About our Tutors

We are Trinity certified ESOL tutors and we teach you through a variety of media – coursebooks, audio visual sources and our own custom made worksheets and activities. We are a family English language school and unlike big corporate organisations, our study groups are small. With us you will always get tuition that is relevant to you and enough time in class to practice and speak a lot. 


Strengths: vocabulary, pronunciation, accents

I am a native speaker of English, born in Sheffield, England. I am qualified to teach all aspects of ESL and I specialise in vocabulary, intonation and the rhythm and stress of the English language. I know how difficult it can be for students to understand all the strange phrases native speakers use in everyday speech so I am here to help you understand us better! Don’t worry though, my accent is clear and neutral.


Strengths: grammar, spelling, reading, motivation

I love the English language – it is so simple and beautiful. We settled here in Sheffield after our university studies to pursue our ambitious vision for an English language school with a difference. I have been an English tutor for over 17 years and I love seeing the success of my students. I understand what you have to go through when studying a foreign language and I would like to help you fall in love with English.

*****Covid-19 update - Some good news!*****

Dear students, at ProPlus English we value your education above all and we have been busy reviewing the updated government guidelines concerning educational facilities in the context of the ongoing crisis. We are happy to inform you that the school will remain open as usual and we will do everything in our power to protect your health when you take lessons with us. Here are some of the steps we are taking to ensure your education is not interrupted and everyone is safe.

- Group lessons will continue in a socially distanced environment. The maximum number of students in the class is reduced to 7 until further notice. Private lessons and study tandems will continue as before.

- Printed materials will still be available, but we will aim to use digitalised materials and a large screen as much as possible to minimise contact.

- All students (and staff) are required to wear an adequate face covering when moving around the building and around the school (including using the toilet facilities). Face coverings are not required while sitting down at your seat in class. If you are exempt from wearing a face covering due to a recognised medical/other condition, please inform the staff before coming to class so additional provisions can be made to ensure everyone's safety.

- The premises will be cleaned regularly, i.e. after each class, after each use of the toilet and after each face-to-face meeting/consultation.

- We will not be offering refreshments so if you need some water or a hot drink, please bring one with you.

- The classroom windows will be kept open and a 3-stage HEPA filtration unit will be used throughout the lessons in both rooms. If you get cold easily, please don't forget to wrap up warm. There will be heating in the room.

- All students are required to arrive no earlier than 5 minutes before the start of their lesson to avoid overcrowding the stairs and hallways. All students are also politely asked to leave one by one, allowing sufficient time for the previous students to descend the stairs and exit the building.

- Finally, all visitors are required to use the hand sanitising point which can be found near the door of the classroom. Let's all follow these simple rules and we can all enjoy a productive study process. Keep safe, everyone!
