Did you know that your child’s learning style is the key to success when taking any type of written test?
Find out how to help your child double his or her grades in school by following the 4 simple steps below.
1. Identify Your Child’s Learning Style – Visual, Auditory, or Kinesthetic?
Arthur is bright, but not doing very well in school. He’s frustrated because he seems to recall what he’s studied at home, but then can’t remember it during the written test at school. His grades are suffering and his parents don’t know what to do. Nothing they’ve tried has worked.
If you’ve ever wondered why this happens to your child, you’re not alone. Just check the grades in any classroom and you’ll see that the majority of students aren’t getting A’s, even if they’ve all read the same book before the test.
The reasons are usually simple. Written tests cater to only one kind of learner. If your child learns best in pictures, (visual learning style), their learning style matches the written testing style, and they get the highest grades.
In order to double your child’s grades in school, you must first know your child’s learning style preference. Is your child a visual learner who thinks in pictures, an auditory learner listening for words and sounds, or a tactile, kinesthetic learner who learns best by feeling what they are learning?

Next, as your child takes a written test, simply ask, “Are you recalling what you have learned in pictures, in sounds, or in feelings?” Their answers will help you add a unique “visual testing strategy” that’s virtually guaranteed to make your child successful when taking written tests.

2. Determine Your Child’s Visual “Eye-Brain Location”
Brain researchers tell us that children who learn in a visual style think in pictures. These children are able to retrieve what they’ve learned faster, and more efficiently, because of their “visual”learning style.
The way they succeed is by using what is known as the “eye-brain” connection. They look upward with their eyes, either to their left or right side, and easily see the picture of what they have learned.
The old saying, “One picture is worth a thousand words” is very accurate in this context. Visual learners access their pictures of what they have learned (it’s almost like a movie playing in their mind) and then translate those movies into words for their tests.
A perfect example of this is spelling. Good spellers see a picture of the word in their mind because it’s inefficient to recall the words in any other way. Most words are not spelled the same way they sound.
If you want your child to remember what they’ve learned so they can quickly and easily recall it on their written tests, you must teach them how to determine their eye-brain connection location. Then you can show them how to use that location during both studying and while taking their written tests. Find out more by checking out the E-Learning Strategies Section at https://www.howtolearn.com
