Many parents find it difficult to understand how their child learns best, often resulting in them providing an incorrect method of assistance. For this article, we here at The Tutoring Center of Arlington have prepared some information which expands on the most commonly recognized learning styles to help you identify which style your child most relates to.

In addition, you will also find information regarding our use of one-to-one instruction and how lessons delivered through this method not only address individual learning styles but engage them.

Children Who Learn Visually

A child who learns effectively through visuals will prefer to have their lessons written on the board or presented to them in text format, often a textbook. While some students may prefer to sit at the back of the classroom where the teacher can’t see them, a visual learner is likely to choose a seat close to the front where they can not only see the board clearly but utilize a teacher’s expressions and body language to fully understand each lesson.

Children Who Learn Through Audio

If your child is excited to attend lectures and tutorials then it’s likely they will identify with the traits of an auditory learner. For this type of learner, simply reading the board and copying down each lesson isn’t effectively engaging their brain because they benefit from hearing each lesson aloud. For children who struggle to understand lessons visually, the use of pre-recorded lectures can see great benefits.

Children Who Learn Through Interaction

Often known as the children who won’t sit still during class, a kinesthetic learner is often mistaken for a distracted student. While it can be true that kinesthetic learner can become fidgety and distract others, it often isn’t due to a disinterest in the lesson. A kinesthetic learner will be more engaged if they are able to touch and move objects which represent the lesson being taught. For example, if the lessons relate to basic addition and subtraction, the use of blocks or household items which can be held and moved is a great way for them to learn. Additionally, flashcards can see great results as they deliver the lesson in a tangible format. As you can see, these three listed learning styles vary greatly, leaving the aforementioned teacher to attempt to deliver each lesson in an effective way, a task which they simply aren’t provided sufficient time and materials to do. Available at (817)-969-5100, at The Tutoring Center of Arlington we deliver our tutoring classes near Fort Worth via one-to-one instruction. With only your child to focus on, our tutors are able to identify and adjust their learning style to match that of your child’s. Not only can this help your child to learn, but being able to actively engage their learning style helps them to enjoy their learning.

Children Who Identify Logic

It’s no surprise that math is seen as the most difficult subject to learn, especially as the lessons grow in their complexity. However, this challenge isn’t seen by all students, and in fact, learning complex math equations is often an area where a logical learner will strive. Logical learners find it easy to identify relationships between objects and are more able to recognize patterns.

Children Who Learn from Speaking

A verbal learner can likely be seen speaking to themselves during their study periods. Whether it be into a mirror, to an inanimate object or even just to thin air, when a verbal learner is able to speak their thoughts aloud they are able to understand the lesson accurately. Additionally, verbal learners can often be heard arguing with themselves, which, on the surface may seem unproductive, however, can actually be a good sign that they are challenging their own understanding and learning any corrections.

Children Who Learn from Speaking to Others

Similar to a verbal learner mentioned directly above, a social learner will thrive in an environment where they can share and debate their understanding with other students or peers. Study groups provide an ideal study space for a social learner where each student reads or listens to a lesson and is then provided with an opportunity to discuss and, at times, argue their points of understanding.

Children Who Learn by Themselves

In direct contrast to a social learner, a solitary learner will often find an extremely quiet space where they can close the door and focus entirely on their studies. While their preferred format may be to read, listen to or interact with their lessons, they prefer to each alone. A common challenge for a solitary learner is finding an ideal space to study. If you believe your child identifies with this learning style, try to minimize any household noises during their study times. Even errands such as laundry and cleaning provide a distraction.
