Writing and Science Tutors

Jean Ahking - English / Writing Tutor; Writing Liaison to Master's Program

I began as a Professional English Tutor at Goodwin University 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, send 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

Mike Bailey - English/Writing Tutor

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.

Elizabeth Brown - English/Writing Tutor

I am a proud native Nutmegger and have worked at Goodwin University 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.

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
