Introduction to families
Dear Family, My name is Nicola V, and I am a 21 year old female, who just completed my BA (law and Psychology) degree, and I am looking for a full-time au pair job for the next year before I start my Honours degree. I am a very flexible, hard-working, and motivated person, who is always up for a challenge. I pride myself in punctuality, professionalism, and respect. I look forward to hearing from you and your family and getting to know you better!
I have experience with various age groups (2-6 and 12-15), as well as experience with special needs children, specifically dealing with autism, ADHD, and anxiety. I enjoy working with children of all ages, in both personal and academic capacities and I am able to adapt my skills to fit the needs of your children. In addition, my knowledge gained from my psychology degree enable me to apply proactive skills and tools in order to help your children reach their full potential. I also matriculated with 2 distinctions, with 70 in majority of my other subjects. I graduated from the University of the Witwatersrand with with a distinction in 12 of my 18 models, over the course of my degree.
I thoroughly enjoy reading, casual hikes, outdoor events, movie marathons, sewing, and an enthusiast card and board game player.
