Geometry Tutoring in Charlottesville

We help your child succeed in geometry and teach advanced concepts to students that are ready for a challenging curriculum. Our services include algebra and middle school geometry review before school starts, ongoing support with classroom content, and new topics and lessons.

Get Ready for Geometry

At Blue Ridge Boost, we strongly believe that math is not a spectator sport. Children learn math and become independent, confident mathematicians by solving a variety of problems. Our lessons are short and teach algebraic thinking rather than drill and kill. The problems are selected from a variety of sources, including Big Ideas Math HS Skills Review Handbook and Art of Problem Solving Algebra.

Each day students solve problems from the following topics.

Day 1: Graphing Lines. Students review the standard, point-slope and slope-intercept form of linear equations, graph lines given one point and slope and two points.

Day 2: Equations of perpendicular and parallel lines. Students practice writing the equation of a line given a point and a slope, and two slops, including the equations of lines perpendicular or parallel lines to a given line.

Day 3: Solving linear equations and systems of equations. Students practice combining like terms, solving multiple steps linear equations, and solving systems of linear equations graphically, by substitution and by elimination.

Day 4: Radicals and quadratics equations. Students review the simplification of radicals and practice polynomial multiplication, factoring quadratics, and solving quadratic equations using the quadratic formula.

Day 5: Geometry. Students review the definition and properties of parallel lines, mid-point formula, classification of polygons, and area and perimeter of shapes.

Geometry Remediation

The instructor will work with the classroom teacher when available to match the teaching style and materials to maintain **consistency** in the presentation style. For example, in a tutoring session, the instructor **reviews** concepts your student learned in class and assists with homework. If the student needs extra practice, the instructor proposes **new problems** for the student to solve independently.

When your student needs an alternate view or wants to learn a topic not taught in class, our instructors create individualized lessons at the level the student needs.
