ASC Tutors and their subjects
Jean Ahking - English / Writing Tutor; Writing Liaison to Master's Program
I began as a Professional English Tutor at Goodwin College in summer of 2019, and primarily work with students pursuing their Master’s in Organizational Leadership. As an award-winning creative writer, holding a M.F.A. in Creative Writing and a B.A. in English, as well as an experienced literary and academic editor, I am here to help students improve their written communication through strong and clear organization and ideas. I believe the expressive powers of writing, argument, and research can accomplish thoughtful leadership and participation in the world.
If you are unsure about your paper, bring me a draft and I’d be happy to help. I look forward to working with you!
Pat Albers - English/Writing Tutor
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.
“Instruction does much, but encouragement everything." J.W. Von Goethe
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.
I am a proud native Nutmegger and have worked at Goodwin College for two years as a Professional English Tutor and, more recently, as an English Adjunct. I am also a part time adjunct at Asnuntuck Community College as well. I am inspired by teaching and words and love to help others flourish as writers. Borrowing from one of my favorites, Virginia Woolf, “Nothing has really happened until it has been recorded” sums it up nicely.
Hello, I have worked in the ASC for four years and have been helping students from the 6th grade through college improve their writing. In addition to working as an English/Writing tutor at Goodwin I also teach 6th grade Language Arts. I am very passionate about reading and writing and I look forward to reading your writing.
I have been a chemistry instructor at Goodwin College since 2006, and joined the tutoring staff in the Academic Success Center in 2015. I enjoy the field of chemistry, and like helping students understand more about the physical and natural world that surrounds them.
Hello, I have worked at Goodwin College for 5 years. I started as an adjunct professor teaching the IDA class and have been an English tutor in the ASC for 4 years. I work at Cheshire Academy full time and teach Psychology there. I have been helping students with their writing throughout my 30 years as a teacher and counselor. I look forward to helping you find the confidence you need to be a good writer and to work with you on your many assignments.
Delano Paul - Chemistry, Microbiology, Human Biology, A&P I and II
I've been a professional tutor over fifteen years. During my college and high school life, academics never came easy to me; however, I had people that believed in me more than I believed in myself. Their belief in me led to a bunch of academic awards and graduating with honors. Now I get an opportunity to share their wisdom with everyone that I tutor. It is my belief that tutoring is Inspiration, Navigation and Education.
Inspiration: Inspire through stories and analogies
Navigation: navigate people through the rough academic waters
Education : Educate course matter using real life scenarios
Hi, my name is Simone. I'm tutoring Bio 120. I'm also a third semester nursing student here at Goodwin. I love traveling (the picture is of me on a pedal boat on Lake Zug in Switzerland), cooking, cheering on my two boys during meets (they both do XC & indoor/outdoor track), and when I have the time I enjoy knitting and a little bit of yoga.
Weston Soobitsky - Peer Tutor CHEM 101
Hello everyone, my name is Weston Soobitsky and I am a peer tutor here at the ASC. Currently, I am working towards a degree in nursing here at Goodwin. I tutor chemistry 101 and I look forward to helping you along as you journey throughout the course. I am excited to work with you to build a strong foundation in chemistry that will serve you well throughout your education now and in the future. In my free time, I like to SCUBA dive as I am a certified open water diver or you may find me skiing if it's wintertime.
Ryan Wheeler - Human Biology, A&P I and II
I have been in front of undergraduate biology courses for over 10 years, and working with students as a professional tutor since 2015. My primary focus is to help equip students with the skills necessary to manage the large amount of information that is characteristic of a college science course while developing abilities necessary for self-assessment so that you can "know what to study". If you feel lost within your course, come have a chat with me and I'll be happy to work with you!
