About Noah

Teaching has been a life-long passion. Although most of my classroom teaching experience has been voluntary -- involving community service, I am passionate about education and helping others learn. It is rewarding to see students grasp concepts, while gaining confidence, understanding and expertise.

Now that I am retired, I have time to tutor and help students reach educational goals. Beginning as a substitute teacher in public schools and spending many hours volunteering in the classroom have taught me to appreciate how others learn. Everyone can learn. My goal is to help facilitate your desire to learn.

Like building a house, we know that a strong foundation supports higher levels. My approach to tutoring elementary math and science is to foster understanding and skills to build upon. Similarly, reading proficiency involves the construction of words -- phonemic awareness, or sounds of letters and combinations of letters. My approach is to make learning fun and rewarding.

I have a bachelor's degree in radio, tv & film from University of Maryland University College, a master's in criminal justice from University of Maryland Eastern Shore and a PhD in business administration with a specialization in homeland security from Northcentral University. I served 12 years as a police officer and retired after an on-duty injury. My experience as a criminal justice professional includes street-level policing, working in the courts and serving on grand juries, as-well-as academic training.

I will work to accommodate your schedule. My base rate is $35/hour for in-person and $30 hour for online lessons.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Criminal Justice

I have a master's degree in criminal justice from University of Maryland Eastern Shore. My experience as a police officer, now retired, provided real-world training and insight in the field of criminal justice. As an author of a book about school safety and a volunteer mentor to school-aged children, criminal justice is one of my passions. I have a PhD in business administration with a specialty in homeland security from Northcentral University, and try to stay abreast on history and current issues involving criminal justice.
