My name is Ellie Caudwell Casey and I’m a fully UK qualified English teacher with 15+ years experience.

I specialise in:

  • Business and professional English
  • Presentation and speaking skills
  • Writing skills
  • Accent coaching 
  • Academic and business proofreading
  • Confidence building and goal setting

I’m a passionate believer in the power of education to change lives. I know this sounds like hyperbole, but I honestly believe it. I have experienced this life changing impact myself and I have seen it so often in my students.

In my 15 years of English teaching, I have worked with lots of different students including professionals seeking promotion or career change, business owners who want to be able to feel more confident in their spoken English, and postgraduate students who want to improve their writing skills. 

I’ve worked with a range of companies too including NHS, ARUP, BASF, AQA, The Environment Agency, Learnlight, Communicaid and more. I’ve also worked in various educational institutions including University of Leeds and a number of UK schools.

My approach to teaching focuses on a keen awareness of the reasons a learner wants to improve their English and the ways they will use it. I encourage my students to be specific and clear with their learning goals, whether this is to seek promotion, become more confident speaking in front of others or to understand colleagues’ small talk. I push learners of academic English to use absolute accuracy in their written work while also understanding that in other situations this accuracy can be paralysing and even unnecessary.



Students learn best when they are motivated and engaged. I use a range of high quality and interesting written texts as resources and ensure that any work my students do is clearly focused on their preferred learning styles and on their goals.

This includes:

  • accent coaching to boost confidence
  • being able to present a complex topic clearly to a professional audience
  • changing career or re-entering the job market after a break,
  • applying for a course including crafting UCAS form statements,
  • learning how to write essays or write them better
  • writing and speaking better business English
  • applying for promotion
  • working towards a specific qualification including GCSE English and GCSE literature, A level English Language, IELTs at all levels, Cambridge Exams, and degree and post-graduate level study

  • Linguistics and Phonetics MA awarded distinction: University of York

A good education, and the confidence it gives you, can transform our lives.

Having experienced major upheaval early in life, I was able to turn my life around through education. Ellie English is my way of passing on that education to support other motivated and busy English learners to use clearer, more accurate English so their message can shine and they get what they need from their careers and life.

When I’m not working, I’m mum to 3 boys and wife to 1 man. I’d like to pretend I have all sorts of interesting hobbies but honestly, at this point in my life, I don’t! I am a keen reader and cyclist though and I hope to be able to cycle some long routes across the UK and into Europe too in the not too distant future.
