7. Solitary learners
Solitary learners like to work and learn by themselves and self-study. They may come across as shy or cold as they keep to themselves. If you get solitary clients feeling comfortable during sessions they are more likely to engage in individual and group work.
Strategies for teaching solitary learners:
- Ask questions so you know what they’re thinking and how they’re feeling.
- Provide individual problem-solving exercises.
- Explain why the lesson material is important as solitary learners are often interested in outcomes.
- Along with this, give the client/group ways to track their progress.
- Suggest links between what they have previously learned/should know and new concepts.
