Need help with Geometry? Designed to replicate the services of a skilled private tutor, the new and improved Tutor in a Book's Geometry is at your service! TIB's Geometry is an extremely thorough, teen tested and effective geometry tutorial.

TIB's Geometry includes more than 500 of the right, well-illustrated, carefully worked out and explained proofs and problems. Throughout TIB's Geometry, there is ongoing, specific guidance as to the most effective solution and test taking strategies. Recurring patterns, which provide solutions to proofs, are pointed out, explained and illustrated using the visual aids that students find so helpful. Also included are dozens of graphic organizers, which help students understand, remember and recognize the connections between concepts.

TIB's author Jo Greig intended this book to level the playing field between the students who have tutors and those that don't.

TIB's Geometry 294 pages are packed with every explanation, drawing, hint and memory tool possible! Not only does it have examples of the right proofs and problems, it also manages to impart every bit of the enthusiasm that great tutors impart to their private tutoring students.

This book is terrific! A Godsend for this family, as our son was having real trouble with geometry. But after working with this book he has gained and held on to a real understanding of geometry. The pov of the book is "for the student". It's well written, and doesn't pander or include silly drawings, or superfluous material. It is completely visual, geometry in pictures.. There is a plenitude of well drawn vector sketches, clean, neat, easy to understand. Visual learners, like our son, will love this book. The writer covers all the hard material but with a deft touch, which makes for easy and painless reading and understanding. And I might add, this book is saving our family a bundle in that we don't have to hire an expensive tutor now. We Highly recommended.

This is an excellent well written book. I bought the book for my son since he is taking geometry and was struggling with it. My son is a visual learner and this book has many pictures, explanations and worked out problems and proofs that help him to visualize concepts. This is much better than the classroom textbook that just gives the answers. My son says it has helped a great deal in his understanding and it's now his go to book when he’s doing his homework or if he doesn’t completely understand a concept or formula. The book is very informative and detailed and we are very thankful that the teacher recommended it.

My dad go me this book to do over the summer to get em ready for next years class. For me the book is extremely confusing and doesn't explain things well. it also jumps around alot . The proofs in it are too complex for a tutoring book, and for someone who is just starting out.
