A child’s learning style refers to how a child learns.    Is your child’s study skills, providing the best outcome?   When your child’s learning style is met they understand the content material and are getting the most out of their learning.  There are seven learning styles my focus will be on the three main styles.

  1. Visual learners: learn by seeing
  2. Kinetic Learners: Learn by doing
  3. Auditor learners: learn by listening

Visual Learners

Visual learners prefer the use of pictures, graphs, and demonstrations to understand new information. Characteristics of visual learners have a vivid imagination, stares into space, and are quieter students.   Visual learners tend to lose interest when excessive listening is required.

  • Looking at pictures to understand the material
  • Review material through reading notes and organize in an outline form.
