Noah has worked in education for years, beginning in 2001 with his first public school class in Harlem. There he learned “through painful trial and error” the fundamentals of lesson planning, effective lesson delivery and the art of handing out stickers and detentions. He then taught mathematics at North Star, one of the premier inner-city charter schools in the country. There he began training other teachers and developing curriculum and computerized assessment and analysis tools. Noah then became a teacher trainer for New York and New Haven teachers. During this time he authored and co-authored several handbooks on teaching and curriculum. These include Questioning in the Math Classroom for Deeper Understanding, a detailed look at the types of questions that lead students to gain authentic understanding and intellectual flexibility. Noah specializes in helping teachers develop both a critical eye to their own teaching and a sense of how to make classes effective and interesting. Not surprisingly, Noah’s students consistently garner record-breaking results. He himself has scored in the 99th percentile on the GMAT, GRE, and LSAT.

Though the gossip in the teacher’s lounge was quite juicy, Noah left the schools to work as Vice President of Instruction of Manhattan Prep’s. He wrote curricula and books and helped maintain the renowned quality of Manhattan Prep’s instructors. He now serves as Executive Director of an education nonprofit that provides a social-emotional learning program to K-8 schools. But Noah still puts his passion for teaching, curriculum and instructor development to work for GMAT, LSAT, and GRE students in Denver and online.

Prior to teaching, Noah worked in Croatia for the United Nations, monitoring human rights violations and ensuring humanitarian assistance and legal protection for refugees. Previous to that he volunteered as a health worker in various countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, where among other things, he learned creative ways to convince children to wash their hands. When not teaching, Noah is an avid hiker, lousy guitar player, sci-fi devourer, and father of two cutey pies.
