Subject: 6th grader starting math anxiet

Tobias has helped me understand that my very bright, all A, including
math, sixth grader is headed for trouble with math understanding.
Bottom line is she can't do a word problem exposing her lack of real
math concepts. 
But the Tobias book gives me no tools. HOW DO I HEAD OFF THIS
Books, software, daily practice----I'll do it if I know I have the
correct tools.
I am located in Western PA and Maryland, near Frostburg State, Penn
State campuses, University of Pittsburgh if they have help
specifically for this problem.
Specific math testing shows the child has all capabilities for doing
math well. may not be gifted as she is in language/writing but the
brain power is there.
thank you
