President | Tutor

Christopher Yco

Christopher understands that each student is unique. He inspires his students to reach their full potential and cultivate their passions –  not just by achieving higher academic scores – but also through community outreach, sports, and the arts.

After graduating from UCSD (cognitive science), Chris worked with a wide range of educational companies, serving the diverse population of the South Bay, from toddlers to teens. Christopher founded Tricycle Learning Company in 2013, with the hope of giving all students a fair shot at higher education.  His success rate in SAT/ACT tutoring and other college prep services sparked partnerships with such programs as:

Christopher is a Past District Interact Chair for Rotary District 5280.  Christopher taught various professional training programs at Los Angeles Community College, Community College of Allegheny County, and Butler County Community College with a focus on process, test preparation, and job skills.

A Long Beach, California native, Christopher is an archery enthusiast, Muay Thai student, and enjoys traveling with his wife, Pinky, and their Shiba Inu.
