She has always been driven to continue to improve her skills, obtain more certifications throughout her career . She has great verbal communication with parents and swimmers.
    Her ability to connect with her swimmers and her talent at demonstrating strokes has been excellent. Berrin always accomplish her tasks within timely manner and look for the best outcome for her swimmers.

  • It is my pleasure to recommend Berrin Yavuzer for the position of swimming instructor. I have met Berrin personally through our jobs as a Special Education Para Professional. She is very warm and goes over the limit to excel at her job. When I found out that Berrin teaches swimming, I was so excited and asked her to teach my son who is a teenager with attention deficit disorder. Berrin was so helpful, paid close attention to my son and his challenges in swimming. She was very friendly and experienced by being his swimming instructor. I highly recommend her for her outstanding character and personality.
    She will do great in this position she is applying to.
