The Tutoring Center, Upland CA


The next time that your youngster has their friends over, sit them all down and ask them to explain a puzzle or equation to you. Pay attention to the methods each one utilizes.

While one student may attempt to speak the lesson to you using only verbal cues, another one of their friends may take out some paper and a pencil and draw you a diagram of what they are attempting to explain. Another youngster may even stand you up and have you perform the equation. Each of these methods is an indication of the learning style which that child closely identifies with.

Identifying Your Child's Learning Style

Of course, when it comes to their regular schooling path, each and every student is taught the same way. However, as a parent, knowing how your child prefers to learn can be a great advantage when trying to help them with their homework or extra-curricular activities. Below is some information from The Tutoring Center, Upland CA on some of the most common learning styles.

The Visual Student

The most common learning style and the one addressed during a general educational path is a visual learner. A visual learner is a student who responds well to printed information, such as instructions and graphs, whether they are written on a board in front of them or on paper and handed to them during the class. While many social cues may keep a visual learner at the back of the class, a visual learner free from these hesitations will almost always seek a seat at the front of the class.

The Auditory Student

Have you ever tried to help your student understand a lesson and notice that they don’t look at you or at what you are writing in their notebook, but are instead looking into nothing with their ears facing you? While at first it may seem rude, it could be that they identify with an auditory learning style. For these students, hearing pre-recorded lessons over and over is more productive than reading the same notes repeatedly.  Similar to a visual learner, an auditory learner will often look for a space close to the front of the class to hear the lesson better. It isn’t always possible to help your student as much as you would like.

The Vocal Student

There is bound to have been more than one time which you can remember when you walked past your students studying and heard them speaking to themselves. Well, not so much having a conversation, but more speaking out the lesson as if they were both the teacher and the student. While it may sound (pardon the pun) strange, that is exactly what is happening. A student who learns best through speaking aloud each lesson, their notes, and their calculations, can see improvements in their study time if they are encouraged to do just that! If you want to become involved, often students who learn best through this method can benefit from having somebody to speak their ideas to, often hearing their own mistakes as you stare back blankly.

The Hands-On Student

A student who learns best kinesthetically is often mistaken for a student who isn’t interested in learning. The challenge in these situations is that the opposite is almost always true, with the student having great interest and enthusiasm for the subject. The problem is they simply don’t absorb the information as well as other students around them. For these students, helping them with their studying by providing tangible objects for them to interact with can boost their productivity tremendously. For example, providing a child who is learning basic math with objects around your house can help them to interact with each lesson. A similar method can be used for understanding mass, quantity, etc.
