The Tutoring Center, Honolulu HI


Math Help in Honolulu, HI.

If you asked a group of children to teach you how to complete a puzzle, you would be shown a number of ways to do it. While they will all work, each one gives insight into that child’s preferred learning style.

One of the students could ask you to stand up and act out a scene as if you were the puzzle itself. Another student would write down a list of specific instructions for you to memorize and follow. And yet another student would speak to you and have a discussion about the puzzle, encouraging you to ask questions and listen to their instructions. In conclusion, there are lots of different ways to complete the same puzzle successfully.

Understand Your Child’s Learning Style to Improve Your Homework Help

While it may be a fun exercise, it is also a learning one for yourself. Identifying the learning style of your student is a great way to make the most of your homework help by adjusting your teaching techniques to better suit their needs. The Tutoring Center, Honolulu HI has some information below on some of the more common learning styles and traits.

Are They Ignoring You or Just Listening Better?

With so many social influences, social trends, and reasons why parents ‘just don’t get it,’ it can be difficult to know if your student is ignoring you or just trying to hear you better. If you notice that your youngster seems to turn their head or makes an effort to listen to your instructions better than they read them, then they could identify with the traits of an auditory learner. A student who learns through this style can benefit greatly from utilizing recorded lectures during their study sessions as opposed to reading a textbook or their own notes.

You Clearly Have Their Full Attention

The most common learning style and the one most addressed in school is a visual learning style. This is the traditional learning style that you know where a teacher presents a lesson on the board, the students write it down, and then re-read it later during their study sessions. It is an effective way to learn, no doubt. If you notice that in the absence of any social cues, your child chooses to sit at the front of a class or moves to the front of a group when somebody is speaking a lesson, then they could be showing traits of a visual learner. More than just reading words on a board, a visual learner also benefits from other visual cues, such as facial expressions and body language to gain a more robust understanding of the lesson being taught. If you are struggling to provide your student with the level of homework help they need, you aren't alone. As lessons become more and more complex, more and more parents simply don’t have the knowledge to provide the help they want. Speak with The Tutoring Center, Honolulu HI at 808 377 5500 to find out how subject-focused learning programs delivered through one-to-one tutoring can give your student the tools they need to reach their learning potential and overcome any learning challenges they are facing.

At First, You Thought They Were Using Their Cellphone

Have you ever walked past your student when they are studying and heard them talking to themselves? Maybe it didn't sound too much like a conversation with somebody else, but rather like they were discussing the problem they were working through with, well, themselves. As strange as it may be, this can be a characteristic of a verbal learner. A verbal learner is a student who absorbs information if they can hear themselves speak it aloud and discuss it with other people, often requiring very little to no input from anybody else involved in the very-one-way conversation. For this reason, simply sitting down with your student and letting them speak ‘at’ you about the problem can be all the help they need, with your youngster often being able to hear their own mistake as they speak.

They’re Always Playing With Something While They Study

Do you notice that your child just can’t seem to put down objects when they are supposed to be studying? They may not be using cellphones or gadgets, but more running objects around their fingers and often becoming distracted and playing with items on their desk. At first glance, it can seem like nothing more than a disinterested student, but often it can be the sign that they need more interaction with the lesson. A kinesthetic learner absorbs information better if they are able to get hands-on with the lesson, utilizing tangible objects around the house to play out each problem and find a solution.
