Identifying a Verbal Learner

It’s hard to argue with the results of a the traditional and still current teaching method of sitting a classroom full of students in front of a board and teacher. As effective as it is, however, what about the students who prefer to be the ones doing the talking? Below is a post from The Tutoring Center, Miramar FL about the traits of a verbal learner and how you can adjust your homework help style to accommodate.

How to Identify a Verbal Learner

While other learning styles may be a little more discreet, the traits of a verbal learner are...verbal. For instance:
  • Can you remember a time when your youngster sat through an entire study session without reading the textbook out loud?
  • Does your student always repeat your instructions back to you verbatim?
  • There was a time when you were sure they were arguing with the refrigerator about a math problem.
As ridiculous as the last point seems, if your student is a verbal learner then speaking their thoughts to an inanimate object could be just what they need! A verbal learner absorbs information more effectively if they are allowed to speak it aloud, either to an object or during a discussion with a classmate or peers. For this reason, consider adjusting your approach when providing homework help:
  • If your student is struggling with a complicated equation, ask them to explain it to you, even if there is absolutely no way that you could ever understand it.
  • When they are teaching you, ask basic and general questions which force them to go back and tell you the same information in a different way. This is often enough for them to hear any mistakes they are making and correct themselves as they continue speaking.
  • Try to host group study sessions where their friends can come over and have loud study sessions with boisterous debates.
