multiple intelligences

Some children learn best by using 'hands-on' models and practical approaches referred to as 'kinesthetic' learning.

visual learner

Some children learn best by using visual resources such as pictures and diagrams.

maths tuition

Some children learn best by using logic, formulas or numerical concepts.

 

 

 

 

what is your childs learning style?

This article explains the concept of Gardner's Multiple Intelligences Theory, and the importance of adapting teaching methods according to the student’s learning styles. This is one of the key learning attributes your tutor will focus on with your child’s tuition.

Take the Multiple Intelligence test yourself to find out what your strongest intelligences are.


“If we all had exactly the same kind of mind and there was only the one kind of intelligence, then we could teach everybody the same thing and that would be fair. Once we realise that people have very different kinds of minds and different kinds of strengths, we realise that an education that treats everyone the same way is actually the most unfair. Everything can be taught in more than one way, and anything that is understood can be shown in more than one way.”

 

Howard Gardner, Professor of Cognition and Education: Harvard University

 

Why is it that our children excel in some areas, yet struggle with others?

When the ‘teaching styles' do not match a student’s ‘learning styles’ it can be like trying to communicate in a foreign language. When the teaching style is translated according to our strongest ‘intelligences’ however, we can make much easier sense out of information we previously struggled to comprehend. This means that your son or daughter may have far more potential than they are demonstrating if their learning styles are not accommodated for in the classroom.

Learning styles: what are your child's strongest intelligences?

According to Gardner's Multiple Intelligence Theory, we all learn using a combination of ‘intelligences’. Some people are better with logical reasoning and identifying sequential or numerical patterns. Some people learn better by reading, some through listening. Many people learn well visually (through pictures or diagrams) whereas others can make better sense by doing something practical or ‘hands-on’ (kinaesthetic). The order of strength we apply those 'multiple intelligences' determines our learning styles. We develop our weaker intelligences better with experience; however our children’s understanding is much more dependent on their individual learning styles being catered to. This is done far more effectively in a one-on-one environment.

Which intelligences does your child use to learn most effectively?

Adapting our approach to best suit your child’s individual circumstances is what we’re all about! Modifying their teaching methods according to your child’s learning style is one of the most fundamental strategies your Tutor will apply to overcome your son or daughters learning barriers. Whether it’s Maths, English or any other school related topic; once your child finds it easier to understand they will gain new confidence and an improved attitude towards that topic. When the way they think about, feel towards and understand the subject improves, their grades and academic success is sure to follow.

tutoring

One of the most crucial elements of our tutoring philosophy is that both the cognitive (thinking) and emotional (feeling) parts of a student’s mind must be nurtured and guided for efficient learning to be reflected by outstanding achievement. To understand more about our other areas of learning we focus on, please refer to the short articles below:

thinking

Higher Order Thinking: The difference between basic understanding and expertise.

Your tutor will progresively and strategically deepen your childs understanding of subject material by developing their Higher Order Thinking Skills.

understanding

A student's understanding is determined by their teacher's communication.

Your tutor will apply constructivist teaching methods to build new knowledge step by step so that your child makes sense of new information with ease.

application

Expert knowledge and understanding is meaningless unless it is demonstrated correctly.

Your tutor will focus heavily on boosting assessment scores by improving your child’s exam taking and assignment competencies, as well as IT and Literacy Skills.
