The Geography Tutor series is designed to sharpen basic geography skills and teach concepts that students find difficult to understand. This series targets specific and critical areas of geographic knowledge and provides students with an easy to understand visual presentation of the world around us. Produced by an award-winning educational programming company and written by an experienced, renowned geography instructor, the format allows for classroom useage and student tutorial. Each program asks questions and teaches the answers to such questions as "What is a hemisphere?" "What causes tides?" "Where is the equator?" "What is a political map" "How do you read road maps?" "What is latitude?" "What is absolute location?" "What is an environment?" "What is tundra?" "Why is soil so important?"
