How do you know you are doing a freestroke correctly and not the bicycle without a teacher?

I do not change the angle of the finger or hand when playing reststrokes and freestrokes, but I move the arm slightly upwards for reststrokes as I play freestrokes with the left part of the fingertips and reststrokes with the right part of the fingertips (except for the thumb).
