Elisabet Cases

German, Spanish and French teacher

I started doing language tuition at 16 and love teaching and learning! 30 years later, I have come to a few conclusions.

My teaching experience is very broad; I have taught in various comprehensive schools, worked as head of department and in complex needs schools. 

I decided to homeschool my own children (best decision I ever made) who are learning German, Spanish and French with me!! As well as languages we do horticulture and cooking (important survival skills), spend a lot of time outdoors to learn to love and look after our environment.

And this is why I agreed to work at Oxford Teaching Trust when Alex rang me. It represents my own ideas of holistic education where the student is developed as an individual as well as given the tools to take charge of his/her learning.

As well as homeschooling I discovered online teaching and am now a total enthusiast of online learning, because it works!! ALL THIS with the added advantage of getting to know your student as an individual

What I teach:

  • IGCSE & A’Level GERMAN
  • IGCSE FRENCH
