One afternoon, the folks in our Curriculum Department had a sequence of thoughts that went something like this:

  1. Teenagers need to learn hundreds of vocabulary words to ace the verbal portions of the SAT and many other standardized tests.
  2. Teenagers do not like learning hundreds of vocabulary words to ace the verbal portions of the SAT and many other standardized tests.
  3. Teenagers like watching popular TV shows like How I Met Your Mother, Family Guy, and Glee.

Two months later, Catalyst's unique vocabulary book, Tivocabulary, was born. Tivocabulary teaches students every multi-syllable word guaranteed to be on the SAT by referencing characters and episodes from popular TV shows like South Park, Gossip Girl, The Office, and Glee. Tivocabulary enables students to learn definitions much more quickly – and enjoyably! – because it provides funny, immediately relatable sentences that place the words in context.

Great for teenagers studying for standardized tests or grown-ups looking to drop the word pulchritudinous during an upcoming cocktail party, Tivocabulary contains the 500 most frequently-tested words on the SAT.


Tivocabulary is $25
