“Visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and reading/writing learners refer to different learning styles, which are hypothetical ways in which people like to process and retain information,” explains Maud Miller, an English specialist from Owl Tutors, a private tuition agency that provides qualified teachers for one-to-one support across a range of exams and subjects.
“While there’s some debate among educators about how effective learning styles really are, it’s still useful to understand the general characteristics of each one.”
“Most people use a mix of these styles,” stresses Ms Miller. “Research suggests focusing on techniques that work for most learners is more important than matching individual styles.”
