Parents often place so much emphasis on the teaching style of their child's teacher and the impact it has on their child's learning that the individual learning style of a child is forgotten. This is often because many parents are not aware that there is more than one learning style, let alone which one their child identifies with.

Learn More About Your Child's Learning Style

If you are interested to know more about the most common learning styles and how to identify which one your child aligns most with, this post contains information which can help you understand four of the most commonly recognized styles.

A Visual Learner

It could be said that a visual learner is the most common of all the recognized learning styles and is one which will likely benefit the most from a traditional classroom environment where the teacher presents a lesson the board, and all students read and note it down. If a student always chooses to sit close to the board and learns best from reading each lesson, it is likely they are a visual learner. Students who learn visually also find that textbooks make for a great revision tool. Flash cards are a great tool for parents to help a visual learner at home. When your child is studying, identify any challenging areas and create your own set of flashcards which address these particular challenges. If you keep a set in your bag or the car, then you can use waiting times to give your child a small pop-quiz. These can also be used as part of a learning and rewards system.

An Auditory Learner

Students who identify with the characteristics of an auditory learner will often enjoy and benefit from lectures and tutorials and can recall lyrics of songs easily. Instead of reading information written on the board, an auditory learner will more likely listen intently to the information being presented. Auditory learners will often prefer to review their learning by listening to recorded lectures or even audio-textbooks. To help an auditory learner with their study, consider buying them a small note-taking device or installing a lecture-recording app on their cell phone. Of course, speak with their teachers before to ensure they are comfortable with this. Additionally, look for any textbooks which may be available in an audio/spoken version. If your child has been struggling with their school work or simply wants to make a B or an A in a particular subject, The Tutoring Center, Upland CA can help.

A Kinesthetic Learner

One of the easiest styles to identify is a kinesthetic learner. These students are often considered to be disinterested or distracted and don't always benefit from traditional lessons. A kinesthetic learner will prefer to interact with objects to understand lessons. As a basic example, a kinesthetic learner will learn math equations quickly when they are able to use small blocks. If you notice that your child is struggling to understand a particular lesson during their homework session, consider introducing tangible objects which can take the role of each aspect of a lesson and allow them to interact with the challenge.

A Solitary Learner

If you have noticed that your child will bury their nose in a textbook and not look up until it's time for dinner, you have likely seen a solitary learner in their ideal environment. Best left to themselves, solitary learners are happy to study alone and will do their best to overcome and understand any challenges they face with their own research. Only when a solitary learner is not able to understand a lesson after trying by themselves will they ask for assistance. When it comes to helping a solitary learner, the best advice is to let them learn at their leisure until they need help. A good idea, however, is to find out what exactly they are studying so that you are ready in the event that they ask for assistance.
