About Clara


Bio

Greetings! I am from the great state of New Jersey and have just moved here a few months ago. I have taught Sunday School for the past thirty years to 5-12 year olds. I usually wrote my own curriculum and incorporated object lessons and games and puzzles to make the stories memorable. The more senses that are involved in the lesson the greater chance the student will remember the material forever. I have also taught English as a second language at my local YMCA to foreign adults using TPR...

Greetings! I am from the great state of New Jersey and have just moved here a few months ago. I have taught Sunday School for the past thirty years to 5-12 year olds. I usually wrote my own curriculum and incorporated object lessons and games and puzzles to make the stories memorable. The more senses that are involved in the lesson the greater chance the student will remember the material forever. I have also taught English as a second language at my local YMCA to foreign adults using TPR which is the total physical response method.

I can tutor English, Italian, the sciences, social studies, geography and elementary school math. I like to incorporate mnemonic devices to help with long lists.

On a personal note, I have a husband and a great big dog whose name is Rollie. I love to garden, playing Scrabble and arts and crafts. My favorite thing in the whole wide world is to be on the shore to crab or fish.

I have used the Total Physcial Response Method with adults who had challenges with basic conversational skills.

I took four years of Italian in High School and continue to write to my relatives in Italy.

I am available 7am -7pm within the Maryville area. If you would like to meet me first for coffee to get to know me better we can certainly arrange that.
