Do you prefer alternate learning to classroom learning. My niece dislikes going to school. We have to wind up stories and wow her with oodles of chocolates, before seeing her off. She is very intelliget.Once when we got her to a summer camp, she was only too happy .She prefers studying amidst nature.I think alternate learning process, helps the child remember their lessons with ease i na more relaxed atmosphere.They learn to visualise things and incorporate the minutest of details in their work.

Ideally all children should be exposed to different methods of learning, and when a parent sees a child does best with a specific method that method should become the primary method. We're a home schooling family, so this is easier for us. My eldest did best with little direction from us, he occasionally asked for clarification or help with some stuff but he's very independent. My daughter really needed structure, so that's what she has. My younger son is only 5, so at this point he seems to be picking up new information from every source he encounters. I feel bad for kids in over-crowded public schools. It seems all too easy for a child who's doing alright to not excel because the teacher's attention is focused on those who need the most help or act-up the most.
