Helen Snively
Writing Tutor


Ed.D. and Ed.M., Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE)
M.A., Anglo-Irish Literature, University College, Dublin, Ireland
B.A. in English, Harvard University


For 25 years Helen has worked with writers (mostly students) as an editor and writing coach. Before coming to Andover Newton in October of 2005, she developed and ran a small writing center for students at HGSE. She is fascinated by cultural differences in the ways we study and write, and wrote her dissertation about some of them.

As the lead writing tutor at Andover Newton, Helen welcomes EVERY student, whether or not they think they have a ‘writing problem.’ She believes that everyone can become a better writer, and is happy to help students figure out how.

Students can work with the writing tutor individually or as part of a small writing group, so please come see her, and send your friends! 

See the Andover Newton course schedule for current course offerings.
