Noah is a recent graduate of Duke University and joins us in NYC as he attends Columbia Law School. Although he hails from the land-locked state of Ohio, Noah has spent nearly his entire life in the water. From the age of five, he spent summers swimming for a local league and his winters competing for the indoor club team. After honing his craft (although backstroke always gave him a bit of trouble!), Noah made the New Albany High School Varsity Swim Team his freshman year. He swam for all four years and became Team captain during his senior year. During college years at Duke, Noah spent his summer breaks working at a country club as a private swim instructor and swim team coach. Noah believes that the key to teaching is fostering a personal connection with each student and creating a learning environment that is safe, slightly challenging, and above all else - fun.
