Approximately twice a month, around new moon and full moon when the Sun, Moon, and Earth form a line (a configuration known as a syzygy), the tidal force due to the Sun reinforces that due to the Moon. The tide's range is then at its maximum; this is called the spring tide

Spring tide is the high tide that happens when the sun-earth-moon are aligned.

So taking 2 seconds to search online or read your textbook is too hard is it.
High and low tides occur regardless what the orientation of the Earth, moon, and sun are.
Spring tide occurs when the 3 objects are in a straight line.
Neap tide occurs when the moon forms a triangle with the Earth and the sun.
