How the Learning Plan works

We give you a real SAT. We take your answers, and we develop a Learning Plan. It is a syllabus customized to your unique strengths and weaknesses.

We look closely at exactly which questions you answered right or wrong. Each Learning Plan is grounded in our long experience helping students with trouble areas.

The Lotus program is always comprehensive, but we might focus more strongly on linear equations or science reading passages. It all depends on what needs work.
