From Overtired Languages Teacher to Business Owner & Coach
Official Ellie Baker Bio
After 3 years teaching English as a foreign language and a short stint in the corporate world, Ellie qualified with a PGCE in French and Spanish in 2004. During her 10 year teaching career she worked in a variety of secondary, middle and primary schools in numerous roles, including head of subject and teacher trainer.
When her first child was just 5 months old, she quit the classroom to set up her award-winning children’s language & music class company, BilinguaSing, which she franchised in 2014. BilinguaSing offers a fresh and stress-free approach to teaching and learning languages, having helped thousands of children and their families learn languages through her unique musical approach.
Today Ellie consults in schools, coaches teachers to become business owners, writes about education and helps her network of BilinguaSing franchisees to thrive in their businesses. She’s an ‘extroverted introvert’ who dreams of living a nomadic life, educating her kids while travelling the world; but for now lives happily in sunny Maidenhead.

Reality check: I’m also a real person and an exhausted mother of three amazing, full-on kids.
I’m obsessed with teaching and education in general, and I totally believe that teachers can change the world. One extremely powerful way to do that is to empower amazing teachers like you to cut loose from the restraints of the education system and do what they do best – JUST TEACH!
My role in the world is to mobilise this and future generations by empowering teachers to use their precious skills in a way that brings them joy. In doing so I help them rediscover their purpose and guide them to their ‘happy teaching place’.
Through my 12 week ‘Happy & Free Teacher’ coaching programme, I take you through the steps of discovery, planning and executing your dream teaching business so you can finally be free from your job, teach anything you want to whoever you want, online or face-to-face and make a very healthy income from it too.
How I Can Help...
I am here to create a safe place for you to offload, and find what it is you’re really searching for in order to gain fulfilment in your work and life. I help you to identify and then release all the sabotaging thoughts you have about your current situation, your role in the world as a linguist, and your life’s purpose – and make a plan to help you move forward with confidence.
I have coached so many actual and aspiring languages teachers since I started my teaching journey in 2003. I’m good at what I do, and I’ve helped many women completely change their relationship with their teaching role for the better. This sometimes results in them leaving the classroom to set up their own BilinguaSing business with me as their guide, or even changing direction completely.
