The ability to quickly catch on to learning is really not something that can be taught. Some people have to study to make good grades and some people just understand things without having to put much effort into it. It really just has to do with genetics. An IQ test determines how easily a person can learn. Some people just don't have the IQ level to pick up on things as fast as others. HOWEVER, I believe that the "I CAN" level is MUCH more important than a person's "IQ" level. my little brother is a certified genius with an extremely high IQ but he lacks the "I CAN" attitude. My older brother is very intelligent but doesn't have the IQ that my little brother has but he works hard and applies himself. My older brother is a mechanic who is putting himself through business school while raising two kids by himself. When he graduates he plans to start his own business.
My little brother is a computer programmer who lives at home with my mom and doesn't want to go to college. He would rather play computer games all day. My older brother is 28 and my little brother is 21. Just teach your kid to have a positive attitude about learning. That is FAR more important than having the ability to learn easily.
