Learning Styles For Private Tutoring

Written by I Teach UK Private Tutors on December 13, 2012. Posted in Private Tuition News

Is one to one private tutoring suitable for all?

When grades in school start to fluctuate or when pushing to achieve the higher grades, many parents turn to a private tutor from a company such as I Teach UK. But is this the best solution? Students learn in many different ways, most of which are difficult to recreate in a one to one situation, even with the best private tutor.

The Seven Learning Styles

  • Visual (spatial):You prefer using pictures, images, and spatial understanding.
  • Aural (auditory-musical): You prefer using sound and music.
  • Verbal (linguistic): You prefer using words, both in speech and writing.
  • Physical (kinesthetic): You prefer using your body, hands and sense of touch.
  • Logical (mathematical): You prefer using logic, reasoning and systems.
  • Social (interpersonal): You prefer to learn in groups or with other people.
  • Solitary (intrapersonal): You prefer to work alone and use self-study.

Your learning styles have more influence than you may realise. Your preferred styles guide the way you learn. They also change the way you internally represent experiences, the way you recall information, and even the words you choose. Research shows us that each learning style uses different parts of the brain. By involving more of the brain during learning, we remember more of what we learn.
