    We had a very positive experience with Alissa as a tutor for our pod of 5th grade boys from January - June 2020. She cared a lot about the boys and worked hard to create meaningful activities for them. The pod experience was invaluable … More for all of our families during a difficult year and we were so grateful to have found this partnership! We also want to appreciate Craig for helping to match us with a tutor on very short notice after we had cycled through a few folks who were not able to see the commitment through. Thanks for sticking with us!

He is flexible, responsive to our needs/schedule as … More a family, and a delight to be with. We are also thankful that Craig at Themba Tutors really "gets it" and partnered us with such a wonderful tutor who was a great fit for our girl.
  • Geometry Math Tutors, Themba Tutors Nicole May ★★★★★ 7 months ago
    My child worked with Gillian D virtually for math enrichment. She is an excellent teacher. She took time to understand my child's specific learning style and provided tools that would be engaging. She was kind and empathetic- really … More made it her goal to connect with my child and build trust and rapport. My child started the school year with confidence and without the typically "brain-drain" that occurs over the summer, thanks to Gillian.

    Our son started in a new high school, 100% remote, and was really struggling with Latin and Physics. I found Themba Tudors online and had an initial call with Craig, who was very knowledgeable, responsive, and found 2 amazing tutors for … More us. Both the Latin and the physics tutors were fantastic, connected with my son really well and helped him go from 'failing' grade to 'honors'! I will for sure continue using (and recommending!) Themba Tutors. Thank you, C, K, and W!

  • Geometry Math Tutors, Themba Tutors Christine Gennetti ★★★★★ a year ago
    As an adult student diagnosed with a learning disability during grad school, I knew I needed help dealing with my Master's program's demanding workload. I was seriously considering dropping out when I was referred to Themba Tutors. … More I was paired up with a wonderful tutor, Julie, who was a total lifesaver. I learned many techniques that I can utilize in the future as I embark on the next phase of my career.
    I can wholeheartedly say after working with Themba for two years that I would not have finished my program without this organization. And I am so thankful I selected them.
  • Geometry Math Tutors, Themba Tutors Fabiola FITZPATRICK ★★★★★ a year ago
    We were introduced to a wonderful tutor: Mcedwyn. He and our son, a freshman in college, worked well together. As a result, our son’s grades significantly improved. The tutor taught our son subject content and various methods to effectively … More study for quizzes and exams. Our son was also taught time management and organization. My son’s experience with the tutor made the first year of college a less intimidating experience.
  • Geometry Math Tutors, Themba Tutors Jude Eugene ★★★★★ a year ago
    We have been with our tutor, Cailin Schiller, for two years, from 5th - 7th grade. She started as an executive functioning tutor with my daughter. From the start, she demonstrated a depth of expertise and a selective use of techniques skillfully … More adapted to my daughter’s ADHD and Math disability. Cailin made Math accessible and understandable to her in a way that even her teachers had not been able to do. She differentiated reading, writing and math tasks and assignments to tailor them to my daughter’s unique learning differences. Not only did it have an effect on her grades and her work efficiency, but she finally could do her work with less anxiety. Even my daughter’s teachers used Cailin’s guidance to modify their work with her. But most importantly, she became my daughter’s favorite resource. I can’t say how invaluable Cailin has been to my daughter’s progress and well-being. I’d recommend her a million times over. She is a gem.

  • Geometry Math Tutors, Themba Tutors Monica Alzate ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    We were very lucky to have found Edwouine Swift, my son's therapist through Themba Tutors. Thomas is 12 years old, and it is extremely difficult to get him to write. Edwouine just works her magic with him, he adores her and is so … More eager to follow her guidance. I have no doubt she will be a positive driving force in his academic future.

What is Geometry?

Geometry is the field of mathematics that centers its study on shapes, sizes, the properties of space, and the relative position of figures. It deals with:

 

  • Properties
  • Measurement
  • Relations of points
  • Lines
  • Angles
  • Surfaces
  • Solids

 

To put it simply, geometry is the application of mathematics to pictures. Because of this, some individuals tackle geometry with a more creative rather than analytical approach. Geometry requires spatial and logical skills rather than the analytical skills that students are familiar with in other math subjects. As such, it is often difficult for some to transition from algebra to geometry.

 

 

GEOMETRY – BASIC DEFINITIONS – PART 1 | ORIGIN OF GEOMETRY| Don’t Memorise

 

Why is Studying Geometry Important?

 

As a field of mathematics, geometry has plenty of practical or real-world applications. The skills and concepts that students learn in geometry are also valuable in other subjects and fields of study. In terms of professions, geometric skills and applications are integral if you are pursuing a career in urban planning, architecture, design, or engineering, to name a few.

 

The fact that children begin learning geometry even at an early age is proof of its importance in daily life. From learning about shapes and sizes as toddlers, students then move on to study the more technical aspects of geometry as they move from one grade level to the next. In middle school, students begin to study the more technical side of geometry. Middle school students learn learn about formulas for problems involving cylinders, cones, and spheres, applying the Pythagorean Theorem, and congruence and similarity, to name a few.

 

How Can a Geometry Tutor Help Your Child?

If you are trying to decide whether your child needs a geometry tutor, you must first consider the goals you want to achieve. A geometry tutor can be an integral part of your child’s success in school, particularly if you want to:

 

  • Strengthen the foundational skills that your child needs to succeed academically
  • Help your child develop a better understanding of his or her geometry coursework
  • Allow your child to learn at his or her own pace in a comfortable environment, free from classroom pressure and distraction
  • Have a customized study plan that’s designed to address your child’s weak areas and maximizes his or her time and engagement
  • Equip and prepare your child for standardized tests

 

If you answered yes to any of the above, then working with Themba Tutors’ experienced and highly qualified private geometry tutors will give you and your child the tools and guidance to ensure his or her academic success.

 

Whether it’s in-home or online tutoring, our geometry tutors will help students in middle school and high school use fundamental concepts of geometry, including:

 

  • Definitions
  • Tools of geometry
  • Recognize geometry as an axiomatic system
Geometry Math Tutors, Themba Tutors

Our geometry tutoring will focus on reviewing basic geometric concepts and formulas such as the:

 

  • Pythagorean theorem
  • Area and volume
  • The beginnings of geometric proofs
  • Congruence and similarity
  • Strengthen their logic by tackling more complicated geometric proofs
  • Work with a plane and coordinate geometry

 

With a private geometry tutor, your child will receive one-on-one attention from a highly qualified learning specialist. This is crucial as students who require extra help may not always receive the guidance they need from their school teacher, who has to oversee dozens of other students. The additional help that geometry tutors can provide your child will allow him or her to catch up, keep up, and even get ahead of his or her peers.

 

A private geometry tutor can create a safe and comfortable space for your child as he or she learns unfamiliar concepts. Your child will be able to explore the subject, focus on lessons properly, ask questions, and receive feedback and positive reinforcement. Part of the benefits of having a private geometry tutor is the fact that students are able to enhance their confidence and feel a sense of accomplishment once they see the improvement in their grades and class performance.

What Are the Problems That Middle School and High School Students Encounter When Studying Geometry?

  • Students don’t understand, and they can’t apply the vocabulary to understand the problem.

 

  • They are having difficulty with the algebra skills involved in doing Geometry. This points to a lack of understanding of the foundational knowledge needed to study geometry.

 

 

Unlike other math problems, geometry presents its problems almost entirely in pictures and are not always spelled out. Geometry requires students to understand and analyze clues given in pictures. This presents a problem for those who do not recognize these clues or can’t decode the problem.

 

Likewise, students who do not have the patience to decode problems are often the ones who struggle the most with geometry. A typical picture in a geometric problem will often involve several steps and processes before arriving at the final answer. The decoding process can be tricky at times, and the clues are not always obvious.

 

To solve a problem, a student must know where and how to start. He or she must decide how to approach it and go through each step carefully before working on the solution and finding the right answer.

 

Geometry Math Tutors, Themba Tutors

In order to master geometry, a student must possess a firm knowledge of algebra. While algebra and geometry sometimes require different approaches, algebra skills and concepts figure prominently in the process of solving problems in geometry. As such, without a strong foundation in algebra, a student will likely find himself or herself struggling with geometry.

 

It is not uncommon for middle school and high school students to have difficulties with geometry. This is largely because geometry is unique in many ways from other math courses they have encountered. Geometry’s abstract nature is something that many students are not familiar with, and most of them have not been taught to think “geometrically.”

 

Because geometry can be complex to learn and study, it is easy for students to get frustrated and fall behind. This can lead a student to develop a negative attitude towards the subject, which could have been easily avoided if his or her difficulties were addressed with the help of private geometry tutors.

 

 

What Can Be Done When Your Middle School or High School Child Is Falling Behind in Geometry?

 

One-on-One Geometry Tutoring

 

 

What Are the Benefits of Geometry Tutoring for Middle School and High School Students?

 

One-on-One Attention

 

A geometry tutor will be able to identify the student’s strengths and weaknesses. This is vital to help students learn. They can identify challenges the students are facing and teach them the skills to overcome them. Likewise, a geometry tutor can customize lessons depending on the student’s pace. This will prevent the student from falling behind his or her geometry lessons. Students will be encouraged to ask questions to ensure that they understand the mathematics concepts they are working on.

 

Positive Learning Environment

 

With the help of a private geometry tutor, students will be more focused on learning. Distractions can be avoided, and students will be more productive. Parents can also participate in their child’s learning sessions.
