can someone proof read this for me?

I am a kinesthetic learner; I like to do hands on work like labs. I do best in a classroom where there is lots of movement; where I can do it myself. I prefer group work rather than single activity. I recall everything I did in the group, but forget what I did by myself. I enjoy being on the computer, and excel in sports like basketball, and soccer. When I talk I use my hands a lot. I sometimes find it difficult to stay in one place for a long period of time; I need to get up and move. I like teachers who encourage in-class demonstrations, hand-on learning experiences and field work outside the classroom. I learn best by discussing new subjects; if I read it I will go through one ear and out the other, by listening I become distracted I usually tune it out. The best way I have learned over the years for me to study is to do hands on work. As well I have other techniques that have helped me study they are; visual study tools such as flash cards, play sort of like a game, write all information down several times, take notes on textbook readings and lectures, type information to be learned and talk aloud.

Here are the main parts of your series:
visual study tools (noun)
play (verb)
write (verb)
take (verb)
type (verb)
talk (verb)
Now you just need to change that first one to be phrased as a verb phrase, too. That's known as parallel construction: http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/parallelism.htm
