I love kids and helping people. There is a lot of people who has problems learning. Good health is also include an education and a well knowledge mind.I know what is like helping other whom has learning delay. I created Vision Learn. This learning system I made for my kids. I sat down with my kid with one on one and trying teaching reading, math etc. That when learned of their pacific problem(s). Then I tackled the problems with graphs and games. These techniques is very effective and can help everyone. Either it’s not able to absorb knowledge to just a tired mind.
For starters I teach the basic. I make sure they understood by asking to rephrase what I just taught. Listen well to what your child says. Try to grasp the way they learn. Oh yeah , be vital ,not weak, always fun,and too harsh just vital. From my experience ,when you tutor it hard to get back on track when you just fun,or mean but both has a stronger and effective impact on the student.
Second, Once you realize what your child or student weakness is make up a method that helps that pacific area. If one is really stuck makes games helping them to capture the basic or the method of learning.
Fo kids that has a short attention span. Like mine son. I drew a picture of his favorite subject .Or you could print one from your computer. The point of the pic. is that it has a hidden detail. Example : A train , It hides a tiny word somewhere in the picture that they must find. You will need an incentive for this to work.Like fruit or an option to play another game. I foun this very effective. Plus this game I named “Catcha” . I cut a design into one paper,like a soccer ball. On another paper I make a spin will with only three pictures on it. With the wheel behind the cut design paper.I spin.Once stop they has less than a second to see it before I place it down. The object of the game is to catch what image stops in the suggested box. And for them to learn how to catch detail. This helps in reading math and directions.
Mirrors game. If some one see things backwards this is the method to use. In words Write down three to seven letters words. Ask them to spell it out .This is where you can see what letters they has problem with Then so write the word again with the troubled letters backwards.See the results. Try to make them study the letters around them. And make a mirror image of what needed to learn so they can note which letter they are seeing might be backwards. I’ll post more soon!

There are a few simple games that are fun for everyone. Sometimes , I pulled out the world map. I have one of the kids to turn around three times then point on the map. Whatever pick we looked on the we and learn more about it. Wikipedia helps with the text information. And YouTube has great videos. This is also fun for kids that has a fun scary adventure side. Because YouTube has such great videos on scariest parts of town, city and country. There are other educational sites that also teaches history and culture. Afterwards , kids can’t help to talk about what they learn. This will prepares them for agriculture and history classes. They ‘ll think you for it.
Another simple way to pass time is crosswords puzzles and writing a huge word and has them makes all the words they can make out of it . This will encourage great spellers. Dictation is one that should never left the school method, but doing this at home gives them more privacy to correct their errors and confidence to learn speed and spelling. Also this is one to help stimulate memory and concentration. Thinking and doing with writing it’s not so easy when you concentrating on other things so this is a well exercise for everyone.
