"Immediately noticed his willingness and ability to learn and adapt in our small company operating in an ever-changing industry, which is rare and imperative to the functioning of our company. He has taken on many tasks from consulting prospective clients, operating a sales team, and technical design of solar systems. We would gladly hire Nick back for any number of positions."
"I was amazed by Nick's ability to learn and improve himself as a teacher. Although he had taught ESL before, he had never taught adult students or the IELTS. He immediately went to work taking IETLS training classes, studying adult teaching techniques, and continually asking for feedback and help from us. It turned him into one of our best teachers."
"Nick made the challenging process of creating a website fun. I actually looked forward to working on the website because he made it so easy and such a collaborative process by listening to my ideas and giving great suggestions. I am beyond pleased with the end result that immediately boosted our enrollment numbers."
"After spending $2500 for a company to develop our website, we were underwhelmed by the end result. That’s when Nick took it upon himself to redo the entire website, add interactive quizzes, create videos, and more. He did a way better job than I ever imagined."
"It is rare to meet someone with the integrity, work ethic, and innovative mindset Nick has. You can trust him to deliver results the first time and every time."
"‘Ridiculously efficient’ is how I would best describe Nick. Everything he did was oriented towards getting things done as quickly and correctly as possible."
"I was impressed with his work ethic, friendly personality, and ability to work well under pressure."
"Nick always displayed the highest level of work ethic, character, integrity, and honesty in all the tasks he carried out on my behalf."
