About Basil

I graduated from the University of South Florida in 2010 with a BA in English (with concentration in Creative Writing). I currently reside in Central Florida, and work as a Field Tech for a living. I've also worked as an English/Writing Instructor in Central Florida, Guam, Korea, and even in an university in China.

My experiences are somewhat different from the norm, but those experiences helped develop a knack for helping people learn in unconventional ways. I can help any beginner become competent whether the arena is English/Writing, IT, Soccer, or Chess.

My English Tutoring qualifications include the following: I have BA in English, earned Statement of Eligibility to teach Eng 6-12 in Florida, earned Temporary Certification to teach Eng 6-12 in Florida, I passed 40hr TEFLA course, I have ESL experience in Korea and China, and I worked as a freelance writer on Upwork (formerly oDesk). Also, I have passed the FTCE General Knowledge, FTCE English 6-12, and FTCE Professional Education Test.

My Information Technology qualifications include the following:
CompTIA certifications: A+, Network+, Security+
Microsoft Technology Associate certifications: Networking, Security, Windows OS, and Windows Server Administration Fundamentals.
240+ hours of Training at New Horizons Computer Learning Center, and current employment as a Field Service Technician for an IT B2B outsourcer.

My Chess qualifications include the following:
I have solid understanding of all the rules and simple (but effective) tactics, and I have years of playing experience.

I'm also qualified to coach Soccer because I have years of playing experience, and I currently hold a Level-F Coaching License from US Soccer.

I'm a teacher who is fun, flexible, down-to-earth, but also a teacher who challenges his students. If you wish to improve and have fun doing so, then do not hesitate to give me a try.

Lots of Patience and Great Instruction

I like the way he has started with the very basics with my son. He gave him an assessment, pin pointed his weakness in the subject and now has my son eager to learn more. My son loves his methods. My son has accomplished more in 1 week with Basil ,than he has all year long with a 12k yr private school. Im excited about the future lessons to come and the development of my son academically.
