For a visual learner, tactile learners, or for certain types of content fields like science, you may find that a drawing or diagram is the best way to convey information. Visual learners will need to see, usually on paper, what you are describing. For tactile learners, (those who learn by doing), have the tutee build the model or diagram himself/herself. The act of building the model will reinforce learning.
