Science Tutors

MacKenzie Kelsey [Peer Science Tutor] - Study Skills | Microbiology| A&P 1 & II | Human Biology| CHEM 101 |

Hey everyone! My name is MacKenzie! I am currently a Nursing student here at Goodwin working towards my end goal of becoming a Flight RN/Paramedic. I graduated from Unity College in 2012 with a Bachelors of Science in Conversation Law Enforcement. I worked for the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service while I was in college working alongside the Federal Game Wardens. Yes, it was as awesome as you'd think, but ultimately, I decided to take a different path and began working for a local EMS agency as an EMT and became a Paramedic, which I've been doing for the last 10 years. Like I mentioned before, my goal is to become a Flight RN/Paramedic and work on a critical care helicopter providing medical care to critically ill patients.

During my time here in the Academic Success Center I hope that I can help you through your classes and truly comprehend what you are learning in a fun and non-stressful way! I really enjoy learning about the sciences and how they relate to the human body.

Sarah Zogu [A&P I; A&P II; Microbiology; Biology; Health Science; Study Skills]

Hello, my name is Sarah! I am a recent graduate from UCONN and obtained my Bachelor of Science in Molecular and Cell Biology. While at UCONN, I completed my minor in Healthcare Management and Insurance Studies and completed the pre-med track. I am very passionate about science/ molecular and cell biology and have the desire to teach. I’d love for students to find their passion in science as I have myself. As a tutor, my primary duty is to work with students and adapt my teaching to their preferred learning style.

Des Garner - Chemistry

I spent most of my career working as an environmental scientist, investigating and cleaning-up hazardous waste sites so that they could be returned to beneficial use for residential or commercial development. This work required a significant amount of math and chemistry, not to mention patience and tolerance for endless bureaucracy! My MA is in Metallurgy and Materials Science, but my life took a rather different direction and it all worked out very well. I have tutored math and chemistry extensively and enjoy working with students for all ages; adult, middle school and high school students. I enjoy helping students realize that math and chemistry do not have to be sources of horror and trepidation! Anyone can succeed in these subjects – regardless of their doubts or fears. As my mom always said – “Where there’s a will there’s a way!” My goal is to help students see what they are capable of, which in many cases means letting go of fears and misconceptions of their own abilities

Delano Paul - Chemistry | Microbiology | Human Biology | A&P I and II | Study Skills

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

Rodcliffe Wint [Chemistry and Microbiology]

I graduated with my Bachelors of Science in Biology in 2015. Since then, and even during my college years I have tutored students in various areas of Biology/Chemistry. Though I have gone on to earn a terminal degree in the study of Dentistry, I have never lost my passion for teaching. My goal is to have students realize their true potential in the classroom so they may excel in a career that has science as its core foundation. In doing so, it is my hope that I have contributed to the cycle of professionals helping the next generation of students.
