“Study hard what interests you the most in the most undisciplined, irreverent and original manner possible.”

Richard Feynman

Noah was born in Montreal, but moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia at the age of three. He much preferred living in Montreal, but his parents insisted, so he moved with them. Noah had a natural aptitude for physics and math; he scored the top mark on the 12th-grade standardized provincial physics exam. His tutoring career started early, helping his high school classmates with their physics assignments.

During his undergraduate years at McGill, Noah tutored friends who were struggling in math and participated in a program to help students on financial aid with subsidized tutoring services. He dreamed of continuing his education with a Ph.D. somewhere in the United States, and Stanford was the dream school at the top of his list.

Now as a graduate student at Stanford University, Noah seeks to help others achieve their maximum potential, and go to the school of their dreams. His teaching philosophy is not of a teacher lecturing down to a student, but of a mentor and a mentee going through and learning a topic together. The ability to speak freely and question all of the material contributes to a better learning environment and results in a better mastery of the material.

Noah is experienced with ACT and SAT prep and enjoys helping students master all the tricks of standardized test taking. Computer science, math, Spanish, physics, history, and science are some of the topics Noah has tutored, but physics and math are his favorites as those are closest to his current Ph.D. thesis work. As a mentor at ESM, Noah helps students achieve their academic goals and pushes them to be the very best version of themselves that they can be.
