I have had the pleasure of knowing Basyl in both a personal and professional setting for 35 years. This being in both the UK and USA at University, during his time at Motorola in the USA and his subsequent teaching across the globe. Ever the professional Basyl adopts a teaching style that is innovative, fun and flexible. Whatever the group and skill set Basyl is able to tailor his lessons to meet the needs of the group. Whether that be in a corporate setting or a group of overseas students. He excels at languages and delights in the challenge of communicating effectively with his students to ensure that they achieve learning outcomes.As a qualified teacher myself (Advanced Cert Ed) I understand the challenges that the classroom in all of its guises can throw up. Basyl has a way of overcoming these and invariably his students have a positive learning experience. Basyl recognises good teaching when he sees it and is not afraid to challenge those who fail to deliver. As a Senior Police Officer I understand the importance of positive role models and In the time that I have know Basyl I can vouch that he falls into that category. I have no hesitation in providing this reference for Basyl for the role applied for.
