About Rex

I have lots of classroom and tutoring experience helping students develop their language skills. I taught 27 years as a college teacher (composition and grammar) and a number of years as language skills tutor,
I specialize in helping my students develop accuracy in their speaking, listening, reading and writing.

My wife and I lived 8 years in Moscow, Russia, teaching ESL classes and serving as missionaries. Back in America, I have taught adult education English language classes through JCCC. I have tutored successfully with students from Russia, Ukraine, Ethiopia, Viet Nam, Brazil, and Mexico, along with several other countries.

I try to make learning challenging yet interesting and sometimes even fun.

Has a good background teaching English. It's a real good teacher

Rex is a good and patient teacher and his pronunciation is very clean and intelligible. He is a very polite tutor. I'm a foreign student and this helps me a lot. First of all the method he uses is very helpful and allows me to improve progressively my English. Actually it's a pleasure to study with Rex, not a nightmare.
