Freshman high school geometry: Looking for recommended tutor books

My daughter is 14, and is truly struggling with her Geometry class. The problem is neither my wife or I were ever wizards in that department, and even if we had been it's been more than few decades since taking it. That makes trying to help her at home difficult, because it might as well be in Latin.

Does anyone have any first-hand experience with any of the available tutor books or online resources on the subject? I'm really at a loss here.

thx

Wait til she takes trigonometry.

Is her textbook not that helpful?

I'd probably go with one of those geometry for dummies books. But there definitely should be a lot of good resources on-line.

As a father, I would take this opportunity to interview prospective tutors. To make her feel more comfortable, they should be girls in the 17-19 age range.
