Methods of learning and remembering will vary depending on the child and also the subject. Some learn by seeing, others by hearing, or doing. Take time to find out what kind of a learner the child is. Mostly, they learn by a combination of all the methods with a predominance over one method.
Memorising a subject without understanding it, will be of no use because then it doesn't help improve the child's knowledge. Learning by understanding must be given utmost importance.
It is also equally important to help the child develop interest in the subject and know why he is studying what he is studying. If the child is studying history for example, help the child gain a little more interest by reading stories about the people in that time and era.
