There are 3 basic kinds of learners.
A visual learner
An auditory learner
A tactile learner
I always thought I was a visual learner but I learned that I am more of a tactile learner. I like to do things, projects and activities that deal with creating things. Everybody has some of the components of each but it is fun to know which type you are more dominant. Once you know what kind of learner you are then you can choose how to study better. Have you ever wondered why one year in school you do better than another year? Well, maybe it had to do with how your teacher presented information. Maybe your teachers in the past only talked their instructions instead of writing the instructions or vice versa. Think about your past years in school. How have your teachers used your learning style to help you?
