Do you know which style your child uses?
How Students Learn - 3 Different Ways
Educators find and differentiate between three major learning styles: Visual, Aural and Dexterous. To help your child reach his or her full potential, it is important to determine which type of learning style is natural for them and which type of learner he or she is.
3 Types of Students: Which one is your child?
Visual learners absorb material best by seeing and visualizing a subject. They would rather watch a demonstration in chemistry than read about it. These students enjoy working by themselves.
Aural learners respond best by listening. They embrace verbal instruction rather than written or visual directions and are also more comfortable expressing emotions orally.
Dexterous learners absorb skills and knowledge by doing and acting. They need to be involved in physical ways. They respond favorably to concrete objects rather than to abstract concepts. Dexterous learners like to perform experiments.
The next time your child has difficulty with a topic or assignment, try to find a solution based on the type of learner he or she is. It may quickly lead to less stress and more success!
Does my child need a tutor?
If your child studies all the time for tests and does homework but brings home C's or F's, surely you wish for better grades and better study skills and habits. What your child needs is more one-on-one time with a tutor. Sometimes teachers in school are too busy to give undivided attention to a certain student who really needs it. We can help your child do better in school - with the help of a tutor. A tutor will know how a student is doing and can compare it to other students. Tutors also know what the state or local school district requires by the end of the school year.
If you feel your child is struggling in school, or if you want to make sure that your child gets and stays ahead of the class, then you need to take action now and not procrastinate!
Can't tutor your own child?
Not a problem at all!
Most parents can't tutor their child. Educators know that. So, you're not alone! At this point, you need to step in and help your son or your daughter. Hiring a tutor is oftentimes the most effective way for academic support and self-confidence, which are what your child needs in order for her or him to reach their full potential. The sooner and quicker you do that, the easier it is for your child's situation to be reversed.
Remember: If a weak foundation is ignored early on, the whole building will collapse before long. It will only leave your child and yourself disappointed and frustrated.
