What Type Of Learner Am I?

What Type of Learner am I?

We have put together some categories that fit the type of learner you might be which will help you and your instructor understand what resources and teaching techniques will be required to maximise your performance and progress when learning to drive.

Auditory Learner

If you are an Auditory learner then you will often learn better when you have the practical task or theory information explained and discussed with you. You would much rather listen to instructions rather than read up on written notes beforehand. You will probably benefit from resources such as this podcast. You will often want to speek out to reinforce your understanding and possible ideas. You like to explain the decisions you are making and tend to need to justify them. When you speak out, you are happy to question and criticise without much fear. You are the type of person who is fantastic at verbally explaining things. You may also like things repeated by the instructor to re-enforce the task or instructions.

Kinesthetic Learner

If you are a Kinesthetic learner then you tend to  learn through experiencing or doing the task for real. You like to get right in the thick of things by having a go at the task as soon as possible and are happy to be learning from mistakes in order to understand the concepts and processes. You might struggle to sit still and listen to an instruction and prefer a more hands on demonstration. You tend to be a more hands on practical person. You will develop a physical sense of what you are learning and develop your own concepts to adapt and modify to suit similar situations.

Reading and Writing Learner

If you are a Reading and Writing Learner then you prefer to learn through written words. While there is some overlap with visual learning,  you are drawn to the written article through writing it down or reading what others have written, such as our blog. You will read up on the task before hand, research concepts and reflect back on what you have experienced and learnt through writing in diaries. You are keen to analyse criticism and find valid solutions to problems.

Visual learners

If you are a visual learner then you are someone with a preference for seeing demonstrations and observing what others do. Pictures, diagrams and written directions help you picture the task at hand. If you are a visual learner then you tend to understand information better when it’s presented in a visual way. You quite like to doodle, make lists and take notes to help you learn.

Why not read our Aims and Objectives to see how we can help you and adapt a teaching style to suit your needs.
