At Tricycle Learning Company, we break down each section into its basic elements so that students will learn to view the SAT/ACTs with an analytical eye.
Our methods are founded on years of testing and examining the Math, Writing and Critical Reading sections. Together with our students, we experience the material, categorize the question types and practice, Practice, PRACTICE. Students will learn how to dissect the test and convert their stress into motion.
Math: Students will learn to focus on the basic question types found in the Math section. From algebra to geometry, from arithmetic to functions, we will cover the scope of questions tested. Moreover, we teach students to apply two very important questions throughout the exam:
- 1 “What am I looking for?”
- 2 “What do I already know?”
Writing: Just as in the Math section, students will become familiarized with the basic types of questions covered. Tricycle Learning Company will impart such skills as identifying the subject and embracing the concept of speed through a unique strategy of moving quickly during the practice tests.
Critical Reading: In this section, Tricycle Learning Company uses a Four-Step process that trains students how to spot the “wrong” answers and avoid/eliminate the time-traps typically associated with this section.
Additionally, Tricycle Learning Company will progressively turn up the heat by performing timed drills, teaching students that most points are lost when they do not handle pressure well. In the timed sections, we will take them out of their comfort zones – like an SAT/ACT boot camp. Tricycle Learning Company will repeatedly analyze their performance which will allow the student to spot weaknesses in their game. Students will overcome their fears by simply moving their pencils.
Ultimately, Tricycle Learning Company will provide a College Prep Survival Guide designed specifically for each student. This kit will comprise of reminders and tricks to help the student master the SAT/ACTs. The kit will also help with College List building, Personal Statements—everything you need to get from here, to college and beyond. By effectively using these tools, students will find hope in Process, comfort with Speed and will remember to MOVE MOVE MOVE through the test.
