Hope your week has started off well. We conclude our series on tutoring tips for different subjects today. Tomorrow we’ll talk about some ways you can use an iPad to tutor and teach.
Science is a huge topic. You have everything from Physical Science to Chemistry. From robotics to genetic engineering.
If you’re tutoring science I would find out the text book the student is using and then work on getting a copy of the text book. You can use the textbook from year to year with other students you have.
Math plays an important element in a lot of Science. It’s not just Chemistry. My daughter in 7th grade was learning formulas and using them to complete problems.
Memorizing things is also important in science as they learn the periodic table or anatomy.
The internet is a useful place so if you’re looking for some guidance on a specific subject you can Google it. Using our example of the periodic table I could Google.
How to learn the periodic table.
That search gives you a ton of games to play, things to print off etc.
A great example is this site – http://education.jlab.org/elementflashcards/
A good place to start is Wikipedia – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Science
From there you can drill down to the discipline you’re looking for.
