True Teaching & Learning Styles

Teaching & Learning Styles

The Challenge

Just as everyone has a unique personality, each person has a preferred learning style.

If that learning style isn’t being met, students may feel distant, disengaged, and disconnected from their teachers, their classmates, and their futures. Educators may feel frustrated and burned out. Despite teachers’ best efforts and increasing responsibilities, students still struggle and required goals go unmet.

When educators understand how students prefer to learn, they become more effective by addressing students’ individual needs. This leads to increased student engagement.

Research demonstrates that engaged students have improved attention and focus, the motivation to practice higher-level critical thinking skills, and the ability to undertake meaningful learning experiences.

But recognizing how each student prefers to learn in a classroom full of different personalities is challenging. True Colors has the custom solution you need to improve student performance at your school.


Out of one million students surveyed, only 49% felt engaged with school, and only 47% felt hopeful for the future.

Our Evidence-Based Approach

The True Colors proprietary methodology distills complex temperament theory into practical tools and actionable programs. We use colors — Orange, Gold, Green, and Blue — to differentiate the four primary personality types and illuminate how these types best interact with each other.

By helping individuals better understand themselves and others, our evidence-based approach reveals the “why” behind behavioral issues within organizations.

Utilizing this knowledge, True Colors provides programmatic solutions that improve overall performance and academic results.

How True Colors Can Help

The Teaching and Learning Styles Training provides key information and strategies for anyone involved in educational programs — teachers, administrators, and support staff. We equip all educators with the tools to teach in a way that is best suited to the personality of each student.

Additionally, we help educators create a psychologically safe space and a shared language for their classrooms and schools. Our methodology perfectly complements current emotional intelligence and social emotional learning practices with a focus on increasing self-awareness, improving communication skills, and elevating empathy for others. As a result, everyone is better able to relate to one another, a sense of community and belonging develops, and students feel empowered to focus on achieving their academic and advancement goals.

True Colors collaborates with you to develop customized online and in-person programming for your entire district or campus. Our programs are appropriate for K-12 and higher education settings at public or private educational organizations of any size. We customize our offerings and consulting services to best meet your needs.
