Service Description

The academic writing of Gary Cox has covered not only all periods and genres of Russian literature, but also the history and culture of all of Europe and his native America, not to mention philosophy, music history, art history, and theater. He has also published fiction and humor, readers' guides to great books, program notes for theatrical productions, and practical guides for language learners. He has taught English as a second language for native speakers of Japanese, Russian, Czech, Slovak, and German, and has taught English writing skills (including Business English) for Americans both in the classroom and online. His online teaching has also included the fields of History and Philosophy.

Gary Cox's Russian is "near native", and he translates from Russian into English and from English into Russian.
