“Nico's primary project as the International Summer Projects Assistant was to evaluate, revise, and transition an existing online course for international students to a new Learning Management Software. Through this process, Nico gained experience in project planning, consultation, program evaluation, and video editing. The result of his hard work was an engaging and learning-rich 7 module course, comprised of 25+ new educational videos and reflective assessments.
This project required Nico to apply his exceptional communication and collaboration skills to liaise with content contributors, script educational videos, and effectively serve a culturally-diverse audience of learners. Time and again, I have seen Nico use strong analytical skills to identify issues and concerns, and to provide appropriate and effective solutions. Within various roles in our office, Nico has demonstrated strong execution skills and a commitment to excellence. I would - and have - hired Nico again."
Niamh O'Shea / International Student Support Coordinator, Carleton University
“[Nicolas] is one of the most ethical students I have encountered in over 30 years of teaching… Nicolas proved himself to be a caring, supportive student who would give freely of his time to support others. He had a high aptitude for the study of English language and literature and was very much involved in his work, applying himself with persistence and dedication, especially in relation to the study of Language and Mass Communication…... He can present ideas confidently to others, using formal language and an appropriate format. Nicolas appreciates the value of understanding your clients and / or consumers, has a good working knowledge of persuasive / promotional techniques and is able to construct a report that is well structured and written.”
Angela Martin / Head of English, Colegio Gran Bretaña
“[Nicolas] is a very polite, friendly and conscientious, and held in the highest regard by his peers and teachers alike… The characteristic that impressed me the most about Nicolas was the positive relationship that he had on his peers. There were several tasks that the class were set, that required group work, and Nicolas was not only able to work well collaboratively as part of a team, but also show many leadership qualities…. During his time in my class, Nicolas also showed great ability to work independently, which in my experience, is a skill that cannot be undervalued…. He proved his ability to research information based on economic theory and synthesize this information into a high-level inquiry project.”
