Los Angeles native Justin Kuritzkes graduated with honors from Brown University, where he majored in both Literary Arts and Philosophy. He completed a senior thesis in Playwriting and focused his Philosophy studies on Metaphysics, 20th Century Continental Philosophy, and Existentialism. Justin scored within the 99th percentile on his SAT and graduated Salutatorian from the Harvard-Westlake School, where he was a member of the Cum Laude society, a National Merit Finalist, and an AP Scholar with Honors.

Prior to joining A-List, Justin worked as an educator at The Harvard-Westlake School, the I Have A Dream Foundation, and with other tutoring organizations, where he worked with over 100 students in a variety of subjects including SAT/ACT prep, ELA, and Drama.

Since moving to New York four years ago, Justin has been both teaching and working as a playwright and screenwriter, recently making his Off-Broadway debut at The New Group with an original work. Justin was a member of Ars Nova’s 2014-2015 Play Group, and he was awarded residencies from Yaddo, The MacDowell Colony, The Edward F. Albee Foundation, and Space on Ryder Farm.

Justin currently lives in the East Village with his wife (who is also a playwright!).

“Justin is a mensch, an excellent teacher, and he really ‘gets’ my daughter! His tips are thoughtful and on-target, his approach is relaxed and encouraging, and her improvement has been remarkable.”
-Mother of Talya L. (Dwight, 2018)
