Websites We LOVE as Educators

We Use Blended Methods of Teaching

Many of our tutors have served in public schools and tout the importance of utilizing cost-effective methods of lesson support. This means that we look for cheap, easily accessible, and interesting ways to make tutoring fun and relevant to young people. Therefore, we use the internet and kid-friendly websites because most students have access to a tablet, smartphone, or computer in the home. Homework can be assigned and easily found online whereas handouts can be damaged, lost, and they are typically costly. 

So, without further ado – here is a list of some of our favorite websites!

For LESSON Planning

Lesson planning can be a difficult aspect of teaching, as it can incorporate years of experience in differentiated learning fit into a short tutoring session. We utilize websites to help instruct students in a concise and time-sensitive way. Check out the links below!

For PHONICS

Phonics is a key element to a young person’s education – phonics has been shown time and time again to promote early literacy, and we here at Planting Seeds Tutoring & Test Prep use it as the ideal method of teaching children how to read (in case you were unaware, there is actually more than one method of teaching reading – but none so effective!).

For MATH

For Math, we try to be sure that we find websites that cover BACKGROUND instruction instead of teaching just METHODS. That’s key in helping a struggling student succeed, or teaching new concepts for the long-term.

For CURRENT EVENTS

Keeping children updated in the circle of current events is a way to show them respect as individuals with valid opinions. Gone are the days when children were “seen” but not “heard.” We couldn’t be MORE supportive of having socially and politically aware students on our PST team.
