When I ask the adult learners I work with if they know their basic division facts, many of them will tell me that they know some..... but they definitely need to review. 

Unless a learner knows their simple division facts, they will have a hard time understanding and learning their multiplication facts.  They will also have a hard time performing double digit division.
If you have a learner who is struggeling with their division facts and long divison, find some free printable division worksheets Start out with the basic division facts and once they have mastered those, move on to simple divison with remainders.  Until your learner can master their basic divison facts and simple division with and without remainders, you should not move on to more difficult long division problems.  However, as their parent, teacher, or tutor.... you will know when the time is right.
