About me

A qualified and experienced teacher specialising in exam and business English

Hi, I'm Simon and I qualified as an English teacher at Sheffield Hallam University in the UK in 1997. I've worked non-stop ever since so that means I've taught over 25,000 hours of English to thousands of students. After qualifying, I worked in Warsaw, Poland from 1997 to 2007, teaching both in companies and a school. In 2007, I returned to the UK and worked in a language school for over 12 years, teaching students from all round the world. I joined Classgap in June 2020 and have helped approxim...

Hi, I'm Simon and I qualified as an English teacher at Sheffield Hallam University in the UK in 1997. I've worked non-stop ever since so that means I've taught over 25,000 hours of English to thousands of students. After qualifying, I worked in Warsaw, Poland from 1997 to 2007, teaching both in companies and a school. In 2007, I returned to the UK and worked in a language school for over 12 years, teaching students from all round the world. I joined Classgap in June 2020 and have helped approximately 90 students improve their language since then. I can teach all levels of English from beginner to advanced but I specialise in exam English and business English. The exams I help students prepare for are: B1 Preliminary (PET), B2 First (FCE), C1 Advanced (CAE) and the biggest English exam in the world, IELTS. With my business students, I help them speak English more fluently in their work environment. I often use existing materials when teaching but I also enjoy making my own worksheets and Power Point Presentations to adapt my courses to the student's individual needs. I teach online seven days a week. From Monday to Friday I am available from the morning to the evening and on Saturday and Sunday students can book a morning class. You can read all of the positive testimonials from my students and ex-students on Classgap (over 350 5-star reviews) and I would be very happy to welcome you as my next learner.

Great teacher, He adapts perfectly to your needs, work on documents during the class that help you to remember what you learned and he is a charming person

I began my journey with Simon approximately two months ago, meeting once a week. As someone who needed to enhance both my business English skills and work on my pronunciation, I can attest that Simon has been an invaluable guide on my language-learning journey. From the first class, I could tell that he genuinely cares about his students' progress and success. Simon is not only passionate but also incredibly organized. His classes are well-structured, allowing for a smooth and progressive learning experience. This organization played a significant role in my improvement. He also provides a wide range of materials that are relevant to my progress. His passion, organization, and dedication to his students' success are qualities that make him stand out as the best teacher I've ever had. I highly recommend Simon to anyone seeking to enhance their English skills, especially if you want to improve your business English and pronunciation skills.
