Computer Applications Instructor
Nita started tutoring math in high school and has continued to tutor throughout the years. She graduated from the University of Memphis with an electrical engineering degree and then worked in the computer industry until she and her husband Frank chose for her to stay home with their five children (including a set of quadruplets) who were all homeschooled and who are now in college. Nita has been teaching at The Bridge for 10+ years and finds great joy in her students and in seeing those “lightbulbs” turn on!
