What is everyone's overseeding and aeration procedure? When do you do them and do you do anything special with the lawn before you do them?

My kid and I are going to start doing some landscaping next year and I want to experiment on my own lawn so I don't run the risk of messing up a client's lawn.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

In my neck of the woods here I've had ample rain all summer. My lawn has some patches where there is nothing and some patches where the mower tires skidded on the slope and ripped out grass.

We lowered the pressure in the mower tires and started using a different mowing pattern in the area and it seems to be working now, but those spots just don't want to fill in.

No it's not compaction. I know that for a fact. There is a VERY steep hill where I grab the mower brakes (it's an old Bobcat belt drive w/b) and the tires skid down the hill. That rips up the grass and it just doesn't like growing back in that one spot. It only stopped getting ripped up 2 weeks ago when we changed mowing patterns.
