Meet Tricia Sexton! Tricia is married to Blake, the couple has three sons (Carter, Cooper, and Conner) and she is the owner of 3CTutoring in Gainesville. You’ll most likely catch Tricia at a baseball game cheering on her boys, playing tennis or tutoring.
“I was born in a small town in Pennsylvania; Canton. I still try to go back at least once or twice a year if we can, typically for Christmas,” she said.
We want to thank Tricia for spending time with us recently and for telling us more about her life and love of Hall County.
Q: What led you to your current career?
A: “I’ve been tutoring for around 11 years, but I still teach at a private school, Trinity, two days a week. When I first started tutoring I was only doing from my home, but as it progressed more people wanted different subjects such as chemistry and Spanish, but I only taught math. I decided to get an office and hire people who could teach those subjects. We even have an acting voice coach that sometimes comes in.”
