    Are these sentences okay?

    His boss has been very supportive. He is really appreciative of his support.

    Re: appreciative

    They're both grammatical. I'd rephrase the second one. "He really appreciates his boss's support" would be more natural and more clear.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
