The College Nannies and Tutors franchises have one common goal- to Build Stronger Families®. Sharon Ragland-Keys knew her 18 years in Human Resources Leadership roles combined with her passion for helping others made owning a CNT franchise an easy decision.

Alissa Novak is currently a student at Wayne State University. She graduated from Salem High School in 2011. Her future plans are to major in biology and pre-med and eventually become a pediatrician. Starting at 7 years old, she started playing hockey, and at 10, softball. Unfortunately her schedule got too busy to keep up with all the activities, and she decided to stop playing. Growing up her favorite things to do were crafts, bike rides, and playing outside. She's outgoing, fun, and very determined. Learning from the most important role models in her life, encouraged her to be who she has become today.
I am a good role model because I have good morals, I know how to be very supportive of students who struggle, I am very confident and know what it takes to be a strong woman and succeed in life. I also know how to express my opinions freely and I always stick to what I believe is right.
I am hard-working and adaptable. I am a lead by example person. I push the student into the right direction so he or she understands the concept. I am currently a student so I take what I think teachers and professors should do different and apply them when I help students. I keep a positive and fun environment so learning is not boring but exciting.
