Geometry

Geometry is slightly different than other branches of math, but still necessary for building into higher math your child will explore later. Some would even argue that Geometry is used everyday more so than any other math subject. This is because so much of what is studied in this math subject relates to what we see around us on a daily basis. This is all the more reason to utilize Geometry Math Tutoring if your adolescent is struggling with this math subject.

**An Explanation of Geometry and Why it is Important**

High school students usually study Geometry in 9th or 10th grade. Geometry, at its most basic definition, is the study of the shape, size and volume of various two-dimensional and three-dimensional objects. Your adolescent studies two-dimensional shapes such as the square, triangle and circle. In the three-dimensional world these shapes become a cube, cone, pyramid and sphere. In essence, Geometry is the study of the physical world around us because so much of what is studied in this subject matter makes up the world we live in. It is because of this that it is also the study of spatial reasoning. Some of the concepts you may see within their textbook include:

Algebra, Pre-Calculus, Calculus and Trigonometry all use Geometry, so building a strong foundation will benefit a student later in high school and in college as well. Trigonometry can be an especially hard subject if you do not understand the basics of Geometry. For Trigonometry, your child will need a solid understanding of the properties that make up a triangle, circles and Pythagorean Theorem.

Some of the most basic math skills taught in Geometry can be found in everyday life. One of these skills is measurement. Your child will not be able to escape measurement and learning to measure more complex shapes will only help them later in life. Just think how often you need to measure in your own home. Usually it is only simple items that must be measured, but when things like home renovations happen, it may take a higher level of understanding to deal with more complex shapes and to understand what contractors are changing or fixing within the home. This is only one example of how learning Geometry now will help your child later. They will also use measurement should they choose one of the many career fields that require this skill.

Spatial reasoning is another skill or concept learned in Geometry that is both valuable in everyday life as well as in many career fields. As with most math classes your child will need to solve problems; however, in this class they will do so with geometric shapes. This helps develop spatial reasoning, and this type of reasoning is used in many career fields. Architects, Engineers, Astronomers and Physicists are only a few examples of those using spatial reasoning within their work.

**How Geometry Math Tutoring Will Help Your Child**

A math tutor has the necessary expertise to understand what it is your child needs and how to help them. You need an expert, such as Jacqueline Muoio, to sift through the many concepts and ideas found in Geometry and find the ones that your adolescent needs help understanding. It is after a thorough evaluation that she will make a tutoring plan and get them back on track.

Many people get confused by math so your adolescent should not be embarrassed if they need help from a Geometry Math Tutor. They will be thankful later when they understand more complicated math ideas because they worked hard and sought a tutor now.

If a student is in need of a math tutor this means they will have to work harder for a certain amount of time until they solidify what they are having difficulty understanding. Below are some study tips to help your child make the most of math tutoring:

- Basic Terms: Point, Line, Ray, Circle and Line Segment
- Geometric Shapes
- Angular and Linear Velocity
- Pi
- Pythagorean Theorem
- Parallelograms
- Geometric Progression
- Trigonometric Identities
- De Moivre's Theorem

- Learn Geometry terminology.
- Geometry is about studying those shapes and figures so know them well.
- Use flashcards to help you remember formulas.
- Although problem solving is difficult this is what makes practicing it more important so practice this skill on a regular basis.
- Create a study group so everyone can learn from one another.

"Jacqueline is an amazing tutor and teacher of math. She is kind, considerate, and sincerely cares about the progress of my oldest son, who started falling behind when he enrolled in sports.

We didn't want to take him off the team because of his grades, so hiring a Math Tutor was a perfect solution for us.

Jacqueline not only improved is his grades in math, but also gave him study habits for his other subjects.

Now, our son does well in school and sports."
