Ms. Alice Guido
Alice Guido first connected with UNH in the Fall of 1989 as an adjunct professor in the English Department. The next semester she added Writing Lab tutor to her CV and a few years later began counseling students for the Office of Academic Services. She still tutors for the CLR and counsels for OAS. Alice derives the greatest satisfaction when students discover better solutions than she does, proof that they're fully invested in the process of learning. Most enlightening experience at UNH: teaching Raymond Carver's "Cathedral" to a class that contained a sight-impaired student. She holds a BA in English composition and an MA in film study.

Mrs. Linda Lubrano
Mrs. Lubrano prefers to be at home with a book and at least one cat on her lap. At UNH, she spends her time teaching as an adjunct for the English department and tutoring in the Writing Lab. In between, Mrs. Lubrano teaches computer-assisted composition full-time for Southern Connecticut State University. Her diverse degrees include a BA in English and American History from Spring Arbor University in Michigan, an MA in American Studies from Bowling Green State University in Ohio, and graduate work in ESL/EFL from various universities; these degrees have enabled her teaching to expand from inner-city high schools in Houston and Phoenix to colleges that stretch from China and Japan to Tennessee, Arizona, CT, and the US Federal Penitentiary System. Mrs. Lubrano believes all these experiences have taught her that reading and writing hold a mirror to the soul. If writers are willing to really look in that mirror, they acquire a chance to gain self-knowledge and offer that insight to their audiences.

Mr. Thomas Malchodi
Tom Malchodi has been assisting college-level students with their writing since 1995. That year, he began working in the Campus Writing Center at Southern Connecticut State University, where, at the time, he was an undergraduate. His MA is in English. A few years later, he began working as a writing tutor in the CLR at UNH; he continues to tutor at both universities. He teaches composition and literature at Quinnipiac and has also taught composition at Southern. However, his preferred form of interaction with students remains the one-on-one tutoring session. Nothing gives him more pleasure than when students stop by the CLR to relate that writing projects they worked on have gone well. Tom likes to give students a place to turn to when they are frustrated or overwhelmed by the expectations of college writing.

She performed in classical and contemporary plays and appeared in supporting roles on the NBC daytime drama Another World.
Ms. Merlo teaches composition and creative writing at Southern CT State University, and teaches composition and literature in the Accelerated Degree Program at Albertus Magnus College. She is presently researching and writing her first novel. Her passion for drama continues, and she is a supporter of the arts, a film buff and a music fan.
Ms. Kaye McDonough
Kaye McDonough looks forward to helping students meet the demands of the academic essay without sacrificing their lively expression of ideas and points of view. The adventure is finding out just what individual strengths and resources a student can bring to bear on an essay topic. Ms. McDonough earned a BA from UC Berkeley and an MFA from Sarah Lawrence. She has been teaching composition, literature, advanced editing/revision, and poetry, primarily at Quinnipiac and the University of Connecticut at Avery Point, but also at Eastern Connecticut State University, Gateway Community College, University of Hartford, and at Manhattanville. Additionally, she is particularly interested in art history and poetry from the Romantics to the Beats and beyond. She also provides tutoring support in reading and writing fundamentals.

Dr. Cynthia Parker
Ms. Parker has always loved reading and was happy as a college student. While studying at Connecticut College, she honed her love of music and double majored in English and music. That preparation led to graduate study in comparative literature, both at the University of Washington/Seattle and at Indiana University/Bloomington, but completion of degrees did not allay her love of learning. She dabbled in several new fields, including cognitive psychology and its insights into the writing process. Ultimately, she decided to study Chinese and spent a year with AFS in Shanghai, an experience that taught her what it is like to be a poor student. Since then, she has devoted herself to helping students who have trouble reading and writing as well as students who want exploratory discussion to enhance their writing. She has spent many years working with students who have visual impairments, and for several years she tutored at Fordham University's special program for academically challenged freshmen, continuing work with many of them through their four years of undergraduate study.
