Tutor Tidbits – A Place to Share Ideas and Ask Fellow Tutors for Advice and Suggestions

  • One tutor found it useful to take a metal cookie sheet to class, along with magnetic words/letters. She and her student would practice building words and sentences with this creative teaching tool! Great Tip, Debbie A.!!!
  • The children’s book “Go Dog Go” is an excellent tool for learning prepositions. One tutor reads it in Spanish to help herself learn the Spanish prepositions. The pictures and repetition help!
  • A small, dry erase board can be purchased for only a few dollars, and will help out in various ways during class; not to mention saving many trees!
  • Prepositions: Bring dolls to class, such as Ken & Barbie. Place them in appropriate positions ex: Barbie is in the chair. Ken is beside Barbie. Develop questions, such as “Where is Barbie?”Thanks for the tip, Brian Anderson of Literacy Network blog, and Dave’s ESL Café.

  • Old magazines are great for pictures and building vocabulary.
