Welcome to the Knowledge Nook!

Our goal is simple: To create learning success stories, one student at a time.


Since we opened our doors in 2015, the Knowledge Nook has been helping students reach their full potential. We do this through personalized instruction, working hand-in-hand with the student's classroom teachers for the most efficient learning.


If your student needs help with after-school tutoring, academic enrichment beyond the classroom, or art lessons, call, text, or email Joy at (931) 205-3529 or joysnead68@gmail.com or come by and see us at 601 West Lincoln Street, Tullahoma TN 37388.

"He who works with his hands is a laborer. He who works with his hands and his heart is a craftsman. He who works with his hands, his head, and his heart, is an artist." -St. Francis of Assisi
