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, I have gravitated towards comedy writing. I approach my teaching and tutoring with humor and believe that tutoring and learning is a fun experience. Combatting students' writer's block has always been a personal favorite challenge of mine as well!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions!

Creative Writing · In studio

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.
