Karen's response

Shane I can see you are very professional in your nursing profession. Using the ISBAR format will help you deliver confident, strong handovers because you will confidently know all the relevant information is being delivered to both incoming shifts and when communicating with medical doctors.

Perfect! Karen is a very great and dedicated tutor. She is engaging and willing to help with your needs.

Karen's response

You read really well today. As you become more fluent that little schwa sound at the end of some of your words will slowly disappear. We will of course work on it and, the pronunciation of vowels and consonants so very different to your native Italian. It will be fun!

Karen is a great communicator. She reads between the lines well and has a great understanding of what her clients need to improve, to achieve their life goals. She is focused on helping you succeed in both personal life and career. I highly recommend her services.

Karen is a very professional tutor. She knows very well what her students lack and which areas they want to improve, and provides instructional materials accordingly.
Also, she is always lively, energising the class and friendly enough to make a strong bond.
I highly recommend her even though she is the tutor that I want to know only.
