During the school year, Andrea integrates her writing instruction with Social Studies and English tutoring or with college application essay editing. Over the summer, Andrea tutors writing as a special, customized, enrichment module. Whether you are in middle school, high school, or college, she can help you to master the art of writing!

Andrea has twelve years of experience teaching English and History - lots of analytical essays and creative writing - to both middle school and high school students. These experiences have strengthened my ability to guide students through the processes of crafting creative short stories, academic essays, research papers, narrative essays (like the Common App personal statement, supplemental essays, and the UC application essays), and literature reviews. As a result of sessions with Andrea, you will become a clear, compelling writer, thus maximize your academic and admissions success. Andrea will teach you how to strengthen and prove an argument, or to present a unique story through showing, not telling.

Thorough, Diligent, Skilled Tutor Who Truly Cares

Andrea is exactly the kind of tutor any parent would want for her child. She tutored our 9th grade son in World History AP, and being the first AP class he has ever taken, it proved challenging, as it was a different kind of learning. She is experienced, smart, diligent, but more than anything else, she really cares about the success of the student. She came up with study plans, and also is very flexible with these, taking into account other tests and exams our child had at various times. She was excellent at honing in on the problem areas very quickly, and suggesting various study tools to address those areas. We hope he is able to work with her again next year in APUSH!

Outstanding Writing Tutor for Summer Research Programs

Andrea has helped my daughter in writing essays for summer research programs. Andrea was very knowledgeable and experienced in the essay writing process from brainstorming to reviewing. Also, she was willing to make time for reviewing the essays at short notice. My daughter has already been admitted to some research programs, and we are so thankful for Andrea’s excellent help. Highly recommend her for a writing tutor!

Jenny, 9 lessons with Andrea

Extremely helpful

Not only is Andrea knowledgeable about AP World History, but she goes over & beyond what is discussed during the actual tutoring session with my son. She has devised a plan with priorities to keep him on track for the AP World History exam in May. She has also been messaging lots of links with information about the AP World History exam and extra material to prepare for the exam. It is obvious that she is passionate about helping kids succeed and it shows in how thorough she is.

Wonderful Tutor for Transfer Students

As a transfer student doing the application process on my own, she was extremely understanding and patient. Not only was she a wonderful help with my essays but also the best with brainstorming and so incredibly knowledgeable about how unique the transfer process is compared to applying in high school.

Outstanding Human Geography Tutor

Andrea is extremely knowledgeable about the field of human geography. I like the way she structures the lesson plans and zones in on what the student needs to know, while providing the necessary background information. In addition to being a subject matter expert, Andrea is very student centered and patient. Communication is excellent after each lesson as she provides a summary of what was covered. The virtual tutoring is very convenient. Highly recommend Andrea as a tutor.
