All of our tutors are experienced teachers at highly regarded, competitive schools, who have taught their subjects extensively and have received excellent student evaluations throughout their careers.
High school Geometry courses include a study of the characteristics of various shapes. Properties of shapes and solids, their area and volume, and geometric proofs are common themes.
Topics usually covered include:
Students can expect to learn just about everything there is to know about triangles, and will study other basic shapes as well. Some courses have a two-column proof-based approach, where much of the course will be about learning new postulates or theorems about shapes and then applying them in “Statements/Reasons” -style proofs. Other courses have less of a focus on proofs and have more word problems and situational applications of shapes and angles.
Typical problem areas include:
Students often struggle to master the cadence of an elegant proof. It’s easy to get stuck in a loop of sorts and forget what one is trying to prove! Keeping track of all the theorems can be difficult as well. Finding composite surface areas and volume often presents a challenge, as it’s tough to visualize the composite figure.
How can we help you?
During our many years of classroom experience teaching Geometry, we have seen almost every difficulty that a student might encounter. Working with one of our teachers over a high definition video/interactive whiteboard connection, we can take you through the difficult areas, step by step.
