Originally from San Diego, California, Noah left the sunshine of the west coast to continue his acting career at New York University’s prestigious Tisch School of the Arts. During his summers, he found a love for teaching after he founded Source 4 Studios, a summer intensive for High Schoolers, addressing the English language arts, theater, music and college preparation. This intensive also focused on college essay prep and helping students find their own voice in their writing, a skill that proves invaluable when it comes to writing personal statements and preparing for interviews.
After graduation, he continued to work at NYU as an instructor before setting out across the country (and Canada, eh?), touring with a number of theater productions. Over the past 10 years of teaching, his passion for the arts and education has cultivated in Noah an attentiveness and compassion that he brings to each student that he works with. He specializes in finding and fostering what makes each student unique (read: appealing to colleges!) Outside of A-List, Noah can be found painting, playing guitar, running down Riverside Drive, and hosting puzzle games at Escape the Room NYC, helping competitive New Yorkers decipher puzzles and riddles in an attempt to problem solve their way out of challenging, fully-immersive brainteasers.
I think A-List is a great organization. My tutor was positive and tailored the material to my learning style. She made learning each subject fun and presented new topics in an engaging fashion. Thank you so much to A-List for helping me achieve my personal best!
A-List gave me more than just practice tests and test-taking tips, though these were invaluable. My tutor connected with me on a personal level and helped me understand that I was capable of getting the score I wanted. Suddenly, I viewed my test-taking experience as a challenge, not a burden. I walked into my ACT with the confidence that I knew exactly how to conquer every aspect of the test.”

Both my children had an amazing experience with A-List! Steadily, she worked hard to improve her test scores. Taking the practice tests allowed her to gain confidence and learn to manage her time during the tests. Then a college advisor helped her write her college essays. She was an amazing guide who helped Phoebe focus and streamline her supplements and essays. Now she will be attending her dream college, Rice University, School of Architecture!
