About English to Care



OET   Guidance Sheet for   Writing and speaking Sub  Tests

Do you need to pass the Occupational English Test for nursing? 

Then English to Care is here for you!
With many years of nursing experience, I can help you with the OET nursin
g exam.

  • Creating live role-play practice, you can experience exam conditions, but without the pressure, for the speaking sub-test, with correct pronunciation from a native speaker who knows the job from what patients would say. 

  • You then get detailed feedback verbally and with written follow-up in the language areas you need to work on. This will improve your confidence to speak in many clinical situations.

  • This is just one example of how I could help you pass your OET, so you can continue your career in an English speaking country.

My Professional Story

 Helen worked in the NHS for nearly 30 years and teaching other student nurses, carers, patients and their families about their care was a central strength. Specifically, Helen mentored student nurses giving them one to one support, often in a pressured environment, instilling self-belief and confidence in their practice whilst teaching them the necessary skills. She cared about them and their progress and they would excel both personally and professionally.  
A life-long lover of learning and the opportunities it brings, Helen now works in education within a primary school, firstly in Special Needs and then English as a second Language. This led her to re-train for the C.E.L.T.A ( Certificate of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).

With the combined skills of her nursing background and English language qualification, Helen created English to Care, to use all her expertise to enable other health-care professionals to achieve more competent practice and improved outcomes for patients and their families with the English they need.

Since launching English to Care, Helen's work is taking her into new research and how the power of words and language is changing the course of health-care. Personal studies include Bibliotherapy, Narrative Medicine, poetry, mindfulness, reading for mental well-being and relieving stress and anxiety in the workplace.
