## Creating the Right Learning Spark for Your Child

Geometry starts with a straightforward discussion of points, lines and planes ... and rapidly becomes more complicated (or “fun,” as our math tutors would say) with angles and theorems. If your child doesn’t see the fun in geometry yet — because he or she is frustrated or needs to turn those B’s into A’s — our geometry tutors can help.

With our geometry tutoring program, our tutors combine hands-on geometry help with interactive lessons and a cool rewards system to create the right learning spark for your child. Whether your child is learning how to identify line segments or use the Pythagorean Theorem to calculate sides of triangles, you’ll love watching your child grow with confidence with each skill.
