Understanding your child’s learning style

Each learning style is different from each other, which is why we should aim to help our kids learn more about themselves and how they can benefit from this knowledge. When it comes to revision, exams and larger areas of study their unique learning styles will be hugely beneficial. Here are some of the ways you can figure out the best ways your child learns.

A learning style is often found from where your child struggles or excels. For example, if your child loves to read and is often picking up their pen they tend to gravitate towards subjects that rely on those skills – like English, History or Business Studies. If your child is a quick thinker and can make key decisions easily then they could find Maths a lot easier to pick up in comparison to their peers.

Pick out particular learning methods that work

With the main learning styles ranging from auditory to reading-based, writing and kinesthetic learning, you can soon see patterns in your child’s learning behaviours. Identify what your child prefers to learn about, and how they prefer to learn. Researching the main learning styles will help you as well – this helps both you and your child figure out what can actively benefit them and what learning style they gravitate towards.

But in some cases a bit of trial and error might be the best approach. For example, if your child loves to listen to music as they work, perhaps listening exercises is a better way of helping them out. Ask them to do some revision in a different way, like picking up a study book and writing out answers instead of watching an educational video on the subject.

A lot of your child’s learning support is going to come from you and their teachers. So with that in mind, it’s never a bad idea to talk to your child’s teachers about good approaches you could use. Boarding Schools close to London will be able to help your child understand their learning style with a more personal approach as well. It all comes down to what you both want to get out of learning and school life.
