Hello! I'm Nico, and I'm a dedicated professional with a passion for education, research, and effective communication. With a strong background in tutoring, market research, sales and teaching, I bring a unique blend of creativity and analytical thinking to every project I undertake.
I have had the privilege of working as a tutor at various educational institutions. At Naledi, an afterschool program in Pretoria, I engaged with students aged 7-13, fostering their academic growth and supporting their learning journey. At S&K 항공, an aerospace company in Sacheon, I focused on enhancing the business English skills of engineers, helping them effectively navigate the global business landscape. Additionally, my time at 'Speak Easy' in Jinju allowed me to conduct conversational English sessions with university students, refining their language skills for real-world communication. I also had the opportunity to lead English teaching camps at public schools across Changwon and Gimhae through Y Camp, catering to both children and adults from diverse backgrounds.
With a teaching experience spanning over 4 years, I've worked with students aged 5-16 in various South Korean cities, including Sacheon, Pyeongtaek, and Jinhae. This experience has honed my ability to tailor educational approaches to the needs of individual students, fostering an environment where learning is engaging, interactive, and effective.
Sales, Market Research and Analysis:
Beyond education, I've delved into the world of market research. I collaborated with an insurance company called 'Platinum Life' based in Pretoria, to gather valuable insights into customer preferences and interest, mainly selling insurance packages. Moreover, I was entrusted by Hanuman International Trading Pte. Ltd. (HITPL) based in India to conduct in-depth market research on lumbermills in South Africa, aiding them in sourcing quality Eucalyptus for export purposes.
Skills and Approach:
My diverse experiences have endowed me with a robust skill set that includes creative problem-solving, meticulous research, effective teaching strategies, and impactful communication, I possess the unique ability to break down complex concepts into easily understandable bits, making learning and communication a seamless process. I pride myself on my approachability, politeness, and strong interpersonal skills that allow me to connect with individuals from all walks of life.
I'm bilingual in English and Afrikaans, and can understand Dutch. I'm interested in doing translation and language interpretation work, as language is one of my strong suits.
I am excited to bring my expertise to new challenges, whether it's enhancing language skills, conducting insightful research, translating or interpreting languages, or fostering a positive learning environment. Let's collaborate to achieve meaningful and impactful outcomes!
