Tips for tutoring math for grade school and Jr. High.
One of the first things you want to do when tutoring Math (in grade school, Jr. high and beyond) is to do an assessment test. You can find Math assessment tests for almost every grade here – http://saxonhomeschool.hmhco.com/en/resources/result.htm?title=Placement
Based on the results you get youâ€™ll get an idea of some things youâ€™ll want to work on. One of the big things weâ€™ve run into is trouble with multiplication tables.
You can find some free multiplication flash cards here – http://www.multiplication.com/sites/default/files/BWFlashcards0-12.pdf (note that link is for the pdf file).
Here are some sites that may help you with your math tutoring.

Iâ€™m a huge fan of the Khan Academy – http://www.khanacademy.org/math/arithmetic watch the videos with your student, do exercises related to the subject matter.
Need some worksheets, then you can create your own – http://www.superkids.com/aweb/tools/math/ .
Got your own tips for tutoring Math. We would love to hear them.
Links you can use â€“ If youâ€™re tutoring college â€“ get on the colleges tutor list. An example of one can be found here – http://www.math.ucdavis.edu/courses/learning/tutors . A good way to get more students and it wonâ€™t cost you a dime. Youâ€™ll just need to check out the universities website in your area. Another idea would be to put an ad in their school newspaper.
