The word kinesthetic refers to movement of the body. So, for the most part, you're probably well-coordinated with great physical skills. Sound true?

In school, you and other kinesthetic learners will be most successful if you can use your senses to do things like conduct experiments, act out a play, make a model, use games or simulators to be physically involved in learning or work on a project. Another trick? Write take great lecture notes. It'll help you stay focused and remember what you've heard because when your hand is moving, your brain will remember it better. In class, ask if you can stand or draw if you're feeling antsy. At home, bounce a ball when you study or twist a rubber band around your hand.  

Academic success for kinesthetic learners comes from movement, so use it to your advantage!

The word "visual" refers to sight, so, for the most part, you're probably one of those people who can envision a passage of text in your mind, or remember the exact way to someone's house even if you've only been there once. You never forget a face, and keep yourself pretty organized. Sound about right?

In school, you and other visual learners will be most successful if you can use your visual learning style to your advantage by taking good notes during lectures, especially if your teacher is a talker and doesn't use visual aids. Study alone as much as possible so you remember what you read. Noise, even from a study partner, will often distract you! Color code your notes, read the maps and charts in the books, and by all means, use flashcards. You'll be one of the people in your class who will remember what the words all mean if you do!

The word auditory refers to hearing. So, for the most part, you're probably one of those social butterflies who likes to hang out with friends, go to parties, listen to music, and attend concerts. Sound about right?

In school, you and other auditory learners will be most successful if you can use your auditory learning style to your advantage by listening to lectures, participating in class, reading your class notes aloud, and recording your teacher's voice whenever possible to help study. When you're studying, read text quietly to yourself or study with a friend, but avoid those distracting social moments as best as you can!
