John Fredric (Rick) Nelson
Retiring after 37 years teaching ESL and TESOL in Japan and Hawaii, Nelson returned to his
native Utah in 2014. Soon thereafter, he accepted an adjunct position teaching ESL in USU’s
Intensive English Language Institute. His interests include all things Asian, and finding ways to
make grammar study useful and practical for his students. Nelson and his wife, Lana, live in
Brigham City, and now find some time to dote on five grandchildren.
