Understanding Abstract Concepts
Geometry involves abstract concepts like points, lines, and planes that students often struggle to comprehend. We make these abstract ideas more concrete by relating them to real-world examples and using visual aids and manipulatives.
Visual Spatial Reasoning
Many students have difficulty visualizing shapes and understanding spatial relationships. We incorporate activities and tools that develop spatial reasoning skills, including puzzles, 3D models, and geometry software.
Learning Geometric Vocabulary
Geometry has its own specific vocabulary which can be overwhelming for some students. We reinforce understanding of these terms through frequent usage and context-based explanations.
Mastering Geometric Proofs
Proofs are a major component of geometry that many students find challenging. We break down the logic behind proofs, guiding students through the process of creating their own. We start with simpler proofs and gradually work up to more complex ones.
Application of Algebra in Geometry
The application of algebraic principles in geometry can be confusing. We help students see the connections between these two branches of mathematics, ensuring they understand how algebraic operations apply to geometric problems.
Working with Diagrams
Students often struggle to interpret and draw geometric diagrams accurately. We teach students strategies for decoding and constructing diagrams, emphasizing the importance of details like labeling and scale.
Use of Manipulatives
Concrete objects and manipulatives like geometric solids, pattern blocks, or tangrams can help students explore and understand geometric concepts.
Drawing and Sketching
Encourage students to draw their own diagrams to solve problems and understand concepts. Sketching can particularly help with understanding angles, shapes, and spatial relationships.
Teach students how to construct shapes using a compass and straightedge. This can deepen their understanding of the properties of different geometric figures.
Relating to Real-World Objects
Connect geometric concepts to real-world objects and situations. For example, angles can be related to the hands of a clock, and area can be related to painting a wall.
Teaching Theorems and Proofs
Help students understand the logic behind geometric theorems and how to construct a proof. Start with simple proofs and gradually increase complexity as they gain confidence.
Spatial Reasoning Exercises
Incorporate puzzles and games that enhance spatial reasoning, such as mazes, tangrams, or Rubik's cube.

Example Geometry Tutoring Packages
We offer diverse and flexible options, catering to your child's unique needs and your family's schedule. Choose from ad-hoc sessions for immediate needs, to long-term plans for ongoing support.
Our most common tutoring plans:
This package offers regular tutoring sessions for an entire academic semester, ensuring consistent support for the student. The frequency could be 1-3 times per week depending on the need.
This offers more frequent sessions over a one-month period. This could be suitable for a student who needs to catch up quickly or prepare for an important exam.
For students who require tutoring on a more sporadic or as-needed basis.
