Tips

- Try and study in a space where you can get up and move around
- Try doing two things at the same time, as kinesthetic learners often remember information by associating it with what they were doing at the time. It could be that your remember a specifc formula or quote because you were bouncing a ball off a wall when you were trying to learn it
- Find an environment where there’s lots going on to study in - places with lots of things to do and get involved with will stop you from getting bored and help you memorise what you need to learn by relating it to what was happening around you.
