Writing Tutors

Adrienne Mantegna - English/Writing Tutor

I have worked with writers for my entire professional career. Before becoming a writing teacher and coach, I was an editor at a national magazine for almost a decade, assisting budding writers with their craft. For the past thirteen years, I have worked at both the high-school and university levels, helping students in all disciplines, from the humanities to the sciences to business, turn their ideas into words that work. I believe that writing isn’t a talent but a process. I love the process, every step of it, and am here to help you through it. 

Spring Semester 2023 Schedule:

Monday -Thursday: 3pm - 8pm


Ryan Corthouts - English/Writing

Elizabeth Brown - English/Writing Tutor | Study Skills

I've been employed with Goodwin since 2017 as a Professional Tutor and English Adjunct. I also teach as an adjunct at Asnuntuck Community College.  It is rewarding beyond words to help others grow as writers and find their voice and style and the right words to convey their message. I like to form a collaborative relationship with students, which includes open dialogue and a free flow of ideas. I'm sensitive to the needs of all writers at various levels of development, realizing that confidence is at the core of the writing process.  For instance, the apprehensive or wary writer is more apt to produce awkward, stilted writing. Much of this reluctance comes from past negative experiences related to writing, or not enough practice or opportunities to write.  Even for those who don't prefer writing, I am witness to many students' successes and newfound confidence. I look forward to working with you!

Mike Bailey - English | Writing Tutor | U.S. History

I have been a professional English tutor at Goodwin since 2011, and I have been learning from students as I journey along with them, finding strengths and remedying weak spots.   I have taught high school English, as well as adult GED students, but my mainstay has been working as an adjunct Composition professor at Manchester Community College since 1999.

Pat Albers - English | Writing | Study Skills

I have a bachelor’s degree in Literature with minors in sociology and anthropology. I have been tutoring college students in English and writing for 10 yrs. including college classroom experience. I am also certified in reading and writing for ESL students (TESOL). My tutoring philosophy is simple: I believe that tutoring should help and always encourage students to become independent and confident learners.
