Helping a Verbal Learner With Their Homework

Just because your student learns when they sit in front of their teacher while watching and listening to each lesson being presented, it doesn’t mean that they are learning at their most effective. What if your student learns best by giving the lesson themselves? The Tutoring Center, Long Beach CA has some information below about verbal learners and how you can adjust your teaching methods when providing homework help.

Hear the Signs

That wasn’t a typo. If you have a verbal learner in your home then there is a good chance that you hear about it.
  • Have you ever walked past your teenager’s room and heard them reading the textbook as if they were the teacher?
  • When you give your youngster verbal directions, do they repeat them back to you verbatim? Every time?
  • Do you remember that one time they were talking to the refrigerator about a math problem they were having?
Even the last point, as silly as it can seem, can be a sign that your student is a verbal learner. When a verbal learns speaks to an inanimate object, they aren’t having a conversation, they are merely using the object as a sounding board to hear their own voice. If you have a verbal learner in your home, consider adjusting your tact when providing homework help, such as:
  • When helping with a math problem, steer away from keeping to written notes and instead ask them to teach you about the lesson. Along the way, ask basic questions, even if you have no idea what you are talking about. Often, just hearing themselves make a mistake when trying to teach somebody else is enough.
  • Group study sessions where the participants can get loud and vocal can be a great way for verbal learners to absorb information. If possible, do your best to host these at your home and allow the students to get as loud as they need to be.
