Elisa Sasserath, Center Manager
Elisa graduated from Ave Maria University in 2017 with a bachelor's in Physics and a minor in Mathematics. She first started tutoring when she was in high school, and it helped her to find a passion for teaching. Elisa's love for the sciences and math started in high school, where she was fortunate enough to attend a STEM magnet and take many AP math and science courses. She believes that anyone can master tricky subjects like math and physics, even if it doesn't come naturally with a patient, dedicated tutor.
Christa Stein-Conley, Area Manager
Christa joined mathnasium in 2019 as an Area Manager, bringing with her over 15 years experience as a multi-unit leader. Originally her love of Math led her to Savannah College of Art and Design to study Architecture. Once there she fell in love with Fashion and changed her major earning her Bachelors in Design. Her life's main passion is making a difference in the lives of everyone she meets, mentoring her teams, and coaching each of them to achieve the highest success possible. Seven years ago Christa changed industries from Sales to Education, when her own daughter struggled with learning disabilities stemming from her Deaf and Hard of Hearing diagnosis. She hopes to help other families navigate the educational path for students who need the support and guidance to excel in their future educational growth. Christa is excited to lead her Market and make Math fun for all her students.
