For Parents

Identify learning Style

Our first appointment with your child is a very informal chat . We find out about your child's learning environment and what difficulties they are currently facing. It's very much about building good relationships and trust , enabling us to understand the problems being experienced. We encourage parents to accompany their children and see what we do.

Often at this initial meeting your child is relieved that someone finally "gets them".

We all have the ability to learn, we do it every day, but the key to success is recognising it!

The Right Tools and Techniques

At Connective-Learning we recognise that there are 4 main learning styles . We all have a preferred way of learning and teachers will have their preferred way of teaching. Using the preferences we have identified we can tailor techniques to your child.

We work with them to find the most effective revision styles - including revision note taking and how to actually revise, bespoke to them. Believe it or not flash cards do not work for everyone, nor does just reading your notes over and over.

More about learning styles

Exam anxiety, stress, panic

For some students help with overcoming exam stress and anxiety is the key strategy. We have worked with many teenagers who have suffered panic attacks and or have high levels of anxiety over exams. We can help them understand where this reaction comes from and most importantly how to control and eliminate them.

Often this is linked to low self - esteem or perceived failure. We have worked with many teenagers who believe they are not good enough because they are not getting straight A's. Likewise we work with teenagers who are getting straight A's and the pressure they put themselves under to maintain it, can cause high levels of stress and anxiety.


Where the brain processes information through the eyes.

A visual learner will generally like colour, pictures and good illustrations. Flash cards may work for a visual learner as would colourful annotated notes. This is the style most catered to at school and is the fastest processing style of the brain.

Where the brain processes information by actively doing and or feeling something.

These are the learners who are often classed as the “practical” learners and can get pigeon holed into ceratin practical subjects. They can also be more affected by their feeelings in their preceptions of their ability to learn. However the information given in the right way, means they can do really well with the “academic” subjects.

Audio Tonal

Where the brain processes information received by the ears.

These are the students who learn via sounds. They will notice pace, pitch and rhythm of what is heard. Can be chatty or quiet and can find it difficult and distracting to have to filter our background noise. These are the type of students who are least catered for in our learning environments.

Audio Digital

Where the brain likes to makes sense of data and likes order and detail.

These are the type of learners who like things to make sense. They will work very hard to make sense of things and can struggle with what they would call the “more fluffy” stuff. If they use visual processing as well they often appear to be the students who find everything quite easy.
