The next time your youngster has a play-date, ask their friends to explain a puzzle to you. While some of the children will use the same techniques, others will use a range of methods to teach you.

For example, your student may take out some paper and start to write the lesson or the puzzle instructions down for you to read. One of their friends may speak with directions to you in an attempt to talk you through the solution. Another student may even ask you to stand up and potentially ‘act out’ the problem to help you work through it. The way each child taught you gives you a glimpse into their learning style.

Understanding Your Child’s Learning Style

There are many benefits to understanding your child’s learning style, but the primary one for parents is that it enables them to better assist during homework time. For example, if you spend the majority of your time providing homework help using a teaching method which your student doesn't respond to, then, as good as your intentions are, your time could be better spent. Below is some information from The Tutoring Center, Aberdeen Township NJ on some of the most common learning styles and how you can adjust your teaching style to address them.

An Auditory Learner

Do you notice that your student doesn’t really make eye-contact when you are giving them directions? Do they tilt their head to the side as is they are using their ear to give you their full attention? While it may come across as a rude gesture, it could be that they are simply attempting to hear you better for the sole reason that they absorb information much faster through listening to your voice rather than your visual cues. These students often find that study sessions where they listen to recordings of lectures or even their own notes are the most productive.

A Visual Learner

The most common learning style is also the most addressed during your child's educational path. A visual learner is a student who learns most effectively through reading lessons, whether these lessons be written on a board, in their textbook, or even written by themselves in their notebook. A key indication that your student is a visual learner is their seat choice. Without any social influences, if your student prefers to sit close to the teacher then there is a good chance that they are taking advantage of visual cues such as facial expressions and body language to improve their understanding of each lesson.

Through one-to-one tutoring sessions and the use of subject-focused programs, students who attend tutoring in Aberdeen Township NJ are provided with the tools they need to reach their learning potential.

A Talkative Learner

Have you ever been so sure that your student was talking on their phone when they should be studying, only to ‘catch them’ simply talking to themselves about the lesson they are trying to learn? While it may seem strange at first, this can often be a sign that they are a verbal learner. A verbal learner absorbs information quickly if they can speak it aloud. If your student is a verbal learner then simply offering to listen to them speak can be a great help, often allowing them the chance to hear their own mistakes without you having to understand the lesson.

An Interactive Learner

Often mistaken for uninterested learners, students who identify with the traits of a kinesthetic learner learn best when they are able to interact with the lesson. A great example is to provide a youngster with objects to allow them to physically interact with a lesson in subtraction. If you find that your student speaks about their interest in a subject but, when it comes time to sit down and learn about it, doesn’t seem to enjoy it any longer, then look for ways to make the lesson more interactive and hands-on.
