Bank Street College of Education
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 both the GMAT and the LSAT.
Though the gossip in the teacher’s lounge was quite juicy, Noah left the schools to work as a director of Manhattan Prep’s curriculum and instructor development team, where he was asked to re-write curriculum, books and through regular training sessions maintain the renowned quality of Manhattan Prep’s instructors. Now serving as Executive Director of Academics for Manhattan Prep, Noah puts his passions 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 had 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, cook, board game player, book devourer and happily-married man and father (and no, lil’ Teitelbaum hasn’t taken the GMAT or LSAT yet – at this point he’d probably just want to drool on them , and drooling is not an effective strategy for the GMAT) and LSAT).
“Noah knows the test content very well. He makes the classes interactive and fun.”
“He's personable and was quick to get back at questions [even after class].”
“Noah kept the sessions fun and interesting, but also packed with great learning strategies.”
