SIMON & SIMON have always been focused on providing experienced language trainers to the corporate sector. To do this, we have made a strong commitment to assembling a network of only the highest quality language trainers.

Our database of over 3,000 qualified language teachers ensures we have the capacity to deliver exceptional language training on a national and international level. In order to maintain the integrity of such a large database, we ensure that we never accept a trainer with less than 5 years of teaching experience.

This way, we confidently assure our clients that our teachers are well above the average industry benchmark.

Our teachers have been hand selected for their clear commitment to their teaching careers, the quality of their materials and their knowledge of a range of teaching methodologies.

Most importantly, we look for teachers who have a proven ability to give their learners the confidence to actually communicate in another language.

Get to know your trainer

Prior to the start of their course, we send each student a short profile on their trainer.

This outlines their academic qualifications, professional background, years of experience and areas of expertise.

The profile serves as a useful personal introduction as well as underlining the teacher’s credentials to ensure you are comfortable that you are getting the value you expect from your course.

Ethical Tutoring Practices

In short, this code ensures that your language training course with SIMON & SIMON is designed to help you actually achieve without creating any sort of dependency on a teacher, will not involve any sort of cheating or plagiarism and overall is conducted in a professional and respectful manner.

Beyond just language teaching skills

Our current team of language trainers have an average of 15 years’ teaching experience, and many of them also have additional skills working as language examiners, translators and interpreters.

The excellent feedback we receive from our students has underlined for us the benefits of recruiting language trainers whose experience extends beyond just the language itself.

Their wider knowledge of teaching methodologies and learning styles, extensive course materials and their track record working in many different business sectors is critical for ensuring we offer the greatest language learning experience.

But our reassurance doesn’t just come from our rave reviews. We boast a 95% pass rate on examinations that our students take – which our teachers often play a big part in preparing them for.

Our Account Managers, who are your point of call, are also multi-lingual and multi-skilled individuals who ensure that you are paired with a teacher who is exactly right for what you need.

Whether you are a complete beginner or an advanced learner we guarantee an enjoyable and effective language learning experience with our qualified, native-speaker language teachers.

Soon you will be on your way to achieving your language goals and communicating with confidence in your chosen language.
