# being a math tutor

Right now in my geometry class, I have an A+, but friend is failing that class. I offered to be her math tutor, to possibly meet in the library after school 3 days a week. Does anybody have any ideas on how to make our study sessions more productive (I haven't started yet -- maybe sometime next week)?

1. First, I suggest you talk with her geometry teacher who can probably offer you some good advice about how to help your friend. Both of you should go in together so that the teacher knows that s/he has your friend's consent to share that information with you.

Use as many visuals as possible. I think one of the problems that some students have with geometry is that they have trouble visualizing the shapes.

You could start each session by working together on problems she doesn't understand on that day's assignment. You could work through the first problem together. Then ask her to tackle the second problem while you stop her if she goes astray.
