We know that people learn in different ways. While each of us uses all of our senses to gather information, some people use one sense more than others while learning. Students can become better learners when they understand their preference for visual (seeing), auditory (hearing), or tactile (touching) learning. Often, students find that they have more than one preference when it comes to learning.
Once you understand how you learn best, you can adjust the way that you study for tests or complete classroom assignments. You also can learn to adjust when a teacher's instructional methods don't complement your style. Understanding your learning style and playing to your strengths when it comes to studying and doing homework will help you be more successful in school.
