Giovanni M. Sacramento CA.
Enthusiastic Tutoring; Math/Science specialty; ESL certified
When I tutor, I try to allow the student to come up with the answer on his/her own with my input reserved to hints only, if possible. Especially with math, I like to see how the student prefers to approach numbers/logic and then explain why some, if any, of the student's assumptions are false or don't work, and why it works differently. If the student still struggles, I will guide more deliberately, or skip the problem to move on. With ESL I have had brief experience tutoring family members ... Read more

Here are some of the teaching tools that a Sacramento tutor would commonly use:
Ok, yes this might sound obvious but this is the most commonly used teaching tool that tutors use nowadays. These resources are used in classrooms, seminars, trainings and many more. They are the best tool for private tutoring because the books used in class showcase what classroom teachers are looking for. The tutor may use the book that your child uses in school but there are times when they would bring their own references so that they can teach your children even better. Some of the books that your private tutor may use include tests and study plans that can help in enhancing the learning experience of the child.
Video-based teaching aids
These tools provide lots of benefits in the classroom setting. Video teaching aids are also used by tutors in making some lessons clearer and more comprehensible to children. After all, this is the video generation moving through schools now and it’s always easier for kids to learn when presented with material in the best format for their learning style. Movies and other programs are used to further discuss the different methodologies that surround several types of subjects such as science and mathematics. In addition to that, documentary videos are very useful in subject areas like history and social studies.
This type of teaching tools is actually more preferred by tutors who are teaching younger children and toddlers. You will find that flash cards are effective in teaching the alphabet, types of animals, vegetables and many more. Additionally, it is also a great tool for teaching basic mathematics including subtraction, addition, division and multiplication. These cards can be bought at bookstores or the tutors can do their own version of flash cards. Using flash cards makes the learning process more fun and also is a great way to keep track of where your child may be weak on any given topic.
These types of tools include dissection kits, chemistry lab sheets and many more. There are also items that are useful in teaching anatomy such as skeletons, posters of muscular systems and many more. Globes and maps can be used to teach geography while there are also planetary study tools that can be useful in teaching earth science. While there are some course specific tools that might be geared towards younger age groups, you are most likely to find them being used for older kids study aids.
