I am a comedy writer and screenwriter based in Brooklyn, NY.
I specialize in creative writing, academic writing, and college admissions essays. Whether you or your child wants to improve their writing, loves writing but experiences writer's block or an inability to actually DO the writing, or wants to workshop essays for a class, application, or personal project, I am excited to work together with my students and help them achieve their goals.
At Tufts University I studied English with a focus in creative writing. In school I wrote a mix of analytical papers and creative works, culminating in a fiction thesis. In school I taught a successful weekly creative writing class to homeschooled students, helping them improve their writing and create new and engaging stories that they later submitted to contests and magazines around the Northeast. Since graduating from school, my writing has appeared in RIOT Writers Lab, Elite Daily, Refinery29, WhoHaha, and more publications.

Andrea connected with my daughter right away, encouraging her to push her writing in more creative directions. Andrea brought her bright personality to each lesson, making the writing process fun for my daughter. Together, they worked on her college admissions essay and a few English class assignments. Andrea helped my daughter overcome her writer's block and anxiety about writing to craft more personal, thoughtful essays. We are very pleased with the results!+ Read More

Andrea is so personable and makes the entire experience not only educational, but fun too! She helped me with a few of my essays for school and I found my writing much improved after the lesson, and she gave a few tips that I will definitely be using every time I sit down to write. I highly recommend!+ Read More
Not only was Andrea an excellent teacher, she was really funny, and made the lesson engaging and fun! There was a marked improvement in my creative writing after working with Andrea--she asked the right questions to guide my stories in the right direction while keeping my voice and ideas in tact, which has since made it easier to edit my current work. I loved Andrea!!+ Read More
My son had a wonderful creative writing experience with Andrea. She used fun prompts and writing exercises and provided extensive feedback. We loved that she encouraged the students to submit their writings for publication which resulted in our son getting one of his stories published in a national kid's literary magazine last summer.+ Read More
