There is no one method. It depends on the age and maturity of the students. It also depends on their skill level and motivation. While it is sometimes helpful to make it as fun and engaging as possible, that would be inappropriate at other times, such as when teaching essay writing.
I taught children to speak, read, and write in English in Korea. Meanwhile I tutored kids in English at their homes. Next I worked as a substitute teacher while I completed my multiple subject credential. During that time, I also tutored individuals at their homes. Later I worked mostly as a middle school teacher. Then I earned my single subject credential. For the last twelve years, I have been teaching high school in Salinas.

Matt is knowledgeable in the English Language and Literature content. I have worked with him over the past 7 years and have been able to collaborate and gain new insight into my own teaching from our conversations. He has high expectations for his students and pushed them in any way he can.
Mr. Matt Kramer is a dedicated professional, who not only practices what he preaches but makes learning engaging, personal, and fun.
Matt and I were colleagues at the same high school. I am retired now, but was an English teacher there and then librarian. Matt made full use of the library when most other teachers couldn't bother to step outside the classroom and take advantage of what was offered there.
Matt is incredibly well-read with an impressive recall to use this knowledge to impart the reading and writing skills his students need to rise above the rest in whichever college they choose to apply or whatever career they decide to pursue. When Matt leaves the building for the day, he does not leave his convictions as a teacher behind. Indeed, he and I have had many a conversation about education and the challenges of today's student. He is sincere in his desire to teach. I highly recommend Matt as a tutor.
