About Rezan

After I finished at the U of I, I became an AmeriCorps service member and I managed an after school program for teenagers in Pilsen for a one year. I didn't have an education background, but with a co-member we researched and designed simple activities and trips to get kids excited about various subjects. I enjoyed tutoring in French, English, and all the social sciences (history, anthropology, race, gender studies, etc.). I am excellent at editing papers, especially for grammatical errors and improving overall content. I am very passionate about making sure people effectively communicate their best selves through their writing, especially in the academic world. It is thoroughly rewarding when I am working with a student who is willing to put in the time and really wants to do better. I am happy to be of service to anyone who wants to put forth great effort.

Sociocultural anthropology was my specialty in undergrad, and I excelled at producing the critical thought required to facilitate discussions and write papers. Learning how to ask the right questions and write in formal academic language is something I can pass on to those who wish to also excel in the field.

I took French classes grades 6-9, and 2 years at university completing an intermediate level with a B+ average. I am able to maintain decent verbal conversation with native speakers and do even better with writing.

For Brazilian Portuguese, I completed an advanced beginner's course in university with a B.

I maintained strong A's and B's through my writing intensive courses in general education, anthropology, and gender and women's studies courses. I proofread and edited several capstone papers/theses in college, as well as plenty of middle and high school level english papers in my after school program.

I encourage those who wish to improve their writing, or even break down and discuss difficult texts they may desire further clarification on, to contact me so we can walk through these things together at your pace. I am happy to help those who are new to college-level courses/reading, as I remember how dense/dry certain materials were when I was in undergrad. I also can help those in high school get a jumpstart on reading comprehension skills required for college.
