    There are 3 Dutch teachers but Peter isn’t one of them.
    So Karl, Simon and Steven teach Dutch.
    Mr. Dutch doesn’t teach Dutch because Karl does.
    So Peter is Mr. Dutch.
    Mr. English teaches history and his name isn’t Simon.
    Steven teaches Dutch and chemistry so he isn’t Mr. English.
    The only one left is Karl, so Karl is Mr. English and he teaches Dutch and history.
    Which means that Peter Dutch teaches maths and chemistry.
    Mr. Painter doesn’t teach maths or chemistry (Mr. Dutch) so he can’t be Steven and must be Simon.
    Which leaves Steven to be Mr. Writer.

    Simon Painter teaches Dutch and history
    Peter Dutch teaches maths and chemistry
    Steven Writer teaches Dutch and chemistry
    Karl English teaches Dutch and history
