The Tutoring Center, Arlington TX


If you were to ask your child and each of their friends to explain a lesson or a puzzle to you, then there is a good chance that you will receive the lesson in a number of very different ways.

Your own youngster might take out a notebook and write down the lesson for you, offering you the pencil to work out the equation or the puzzle in a similar fashion. One of their friends may speak the puzzle to you, describing its inner workings and how to manipulate it. Yet, one of their other friends may even try to have you act out the equation or provide you with objects to hold and use alongside your imagination.

Help Your Student With Their Homework by Understanding Their Learning Style

While each of them will undoubtedly provide you with an understanding of the puzzle or problem, it’s how they went about it which not only gives you insight into how they learn more effectively, but how you can better assist them with their homework. The Tutoring Center, Arlington TX has the following post to help you understand more.

A Visual Student

By far the most common type of student is the one who learns visually. That is the student who is most-catered for during traditional lessons at school. These students respond best to lessons and information which is in print form, in all its various varieties, such as being written on the chalkboard, written in their textbooks, or even their own notes from a lecture. If you notice that your youngster prefers to sit at the front of the class (when there are no social influences) then there is a good chance that they learn well through visual cues. They may be attempting to obtain a better position from which to absorb not only what is being written on the board, but also other visual cues, such as the teacher's or presenter’s facial expression and body language.

An Auditory Student

These students can often be accused of not listening when they are being spoken to simply because they aren’t looking in the direction of the speaker. And while the act can itself appear rude, it could be that your student is simply trying to hear the lesson better. A student who learns best through auditory means will often prefer to listen to pre-recorded lectures or notes as opposed to reading them off a board or a textbook and making further visual notes. If this sounds (pardon the pun) like a student in your home, look for lectures of learning material in an audio format which they can listen to either in their study room or on the bus with headphones. If you find that you aren’t able to provide the level of help you would like to your student simply because you don’t understand their lessons, you're not alone!

An Interactive Student

If your student often seems distracted or fidgety, then it’s possible that they identify with the traits of a kinesthetic learner. Often dissatisfied by simply being placed in front of a lesson, a kinesthetic learner prefers to get hands-on with their learning. This could be something as simple as using local objects to emulate equations or lessons for basic math and quantity.

A Vocal Student

Every child likes to talk, that’s just a given. In some instances, this can be a learning tool. A verbal learner is a student who learns best when they speak and discuss the problems out loud. This may explain why your student often talks to themselves during their study sessions. Even if you don’t understand the lesson they need help with, simply being present and acting as a sounding board can be beneficial enough for them to hear their own mistakes and correct themselves.
