  • HACC Tutoring presents, "How to Study forYour Learning Style"!

  • Alright, you've got a big test coming up--- what are you gonna do? How will you study for it?

  • Some students think that there's one magical technique that will help everyone learn,

  • but that is NOT the case. Sure, one strategy might work well for some, but it won't work for others

  • because we all learn in different ways. That's why it is so important to identify

  • your own personal learning styles and use study tips that work best for the way that you learn.

  • The most commonly identified learning styles are visual, auditory, and tactile or kinesthetic.

  • So, the first thing you need to do is find out which of these is YOUR learning style.

  • You might already have an idea of what your style is,

  • but we recommend taking a learning styles inventory to get a better picture.

  • There are a bunch of these available for free online,

  • just make sure you pick one from a reliable website, like this one from

  • Answer each question as honestly as you can and see what results you get.

  • If you discover that you're a visual learner,

  • that means you mostly learn by reading and seeing pictures or diagrams.

  • With that in mind, here are some studying tips to try:

  • Tip #1: Avoid visual distractions while studying.

  • Turn off the TV or Netflix,

  • and face away from windows or doorways to focus better.

  • Tip #2: Use colorful highlighters to make text stand out.

  • Consider using different-colored highlighters to identify different types of information

  • so that you can SEE the differences easily while you study the text.

  • Tip #3: Use flashcards for key definitions and explanations.

  • That way when the test comes, you can see in your mind what the card looked like and remember the facts.

  • Tip #4: Watch instructional videos like the one you're watching right now.

  • You can look for useful videos on websites like YouTube or Khan Academy

  • that specifically cover the concepts that you're working on in class.

  • If you discover that you're an auditory learner,

  • that means you learn more from speaking and listening.

  • If that's the case, try these tips:

  • Tip #1: Speak up in class.

  • Sometimes it can be intimidating, but asking questions

  • and participating in class discussions will really help you lock in key information.

  • Tip #2: When you do settle in to study, avoid auditory distractions.

  • Find a quiet place to study in, silence your cell phone

  • and either turn off your music or set it to something that won't distract you,

  • like a soft instrumental track or some white noise.

  • Tip #3: Read your notes or textbook sections out loud to help you better remember the content.

  • You can even record yourself doing this on your phone and then listen to it later.

  • Tip #4: Watch instructional videos. I know we suggested this for visual learners,

  • but the great thing about videos is that they're also really good for auditory learners since

  • you can HEAR the explanations and examples.

  • If you find that you're a tactile or kinesthetic learner,

  • that means you learn best by touching or doing.

  • Here are some tips if this is you:

  • Tip #1: Take frequent but quick breaks.

  • You probably have a fairly short attention span when you're trying to just sitting there trying to study,

  • so break up that study time by spending a few minutes walking around or stretching every once in a while---

  • just make sure you come back before too long.

  • Tip #2: When you do come back and you review your notes or textbook,

  • try to tie the content to real-world examples.

  • You'll remember things better when you connect information to actions.

  • Tip #3: Do something physical while studying, nothing super distracting like jumping jacks,

  • but fiddling with a rubber band, squeezing a stress ball,

  • or even tapping a pencil could help keep your mind focused.

  • You might find that you have traits that are from a couple of different learning styles,

  • and that's pretty normal, so don't be afraid to try new study techniques to see what helps you.

  • The key is to embrace your strengths and recognize your weaknesses

  • so that you can get the most out of your studying and ace that test.
