The old Language Experience strategy from decades ago is still a good one, holding up with current theory and effective practices. If you need to tutor someone, of any age, here are directions for implementing a language experience lesson. It's a brilliant strategy because it works for any age learner, any kind of learner, with minor adaptations.
The premise still holds -what I can say, I can write; what I can write, I can read. A great strategy for English language learners also.
