ASC Tutors and their subjects

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.

Sadie Boone - English/Writing Tutor, Graduate Program Writing Liaison

Hi, I'm Sadie, and I'm an English/writing tutor here in the ASC. I am happy to help you at any stage of the writing process--even if you haven't started writing yet!

Elizabeth Brown - English/Writing Tutor

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.

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 that 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

Simone Rendon - Peer Tutor BIO 120

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!
