Hello, my name is Elyse and I have lived in Blount Co. for 10 years. I have an AAS in Administration of Justice, which was my career until my husband was killed in 1998.

I homeschooled my children as a single mother because they all had needs that some schools didn't have resources to deal with so I figured out the best way to teach each child while traveling around the country and working; all went on to attend College and now have successful careers. I was also a substitute teacher for elementary students in Hamblen Co during the 2003-2004 school year. Each child learns in their own way and that is wh

I taught public school for over 10 years, including 2 years at the state public online school (TNVA). Most of that decade of teaching was for the Knox County Schools district, in various elementary & middle schools. I am certified in the State of Tennessee (license number 000583435) in middle grades education (4 - 8), and have taught and/or tutored all 4 core subjects, including related arts: visual art, PE, mindfulness, STEM/robotics, PBL, reading intervention, and math intervention. I am an independent tutor, but still sometimes substitute teach for Calculating Minds math learning centers.

We loved our experience with Seth. My daughter was able to ask questions and receive detailed guidance on math concepts swiftly covered in the classroom setting. Seth was knowledgeable in various learning methods and pinned down the best approach for my daughter to learn math concepts confidently. His patience, persistence, and knowledge led my daughter from a below average math student to leaving high school with an A average in math.
