Our ACT Prep Philosophy
3MT, or 3 Moms and a Test, delivers an ACT test preparation course that consists of three separate classes, including general and verbal strategies, math strategies, and science reasoning / test anxiety strategies. Three hour classes are held on selected days within the two weeks prior to the test date.
Three mothers (plus our bonus mom), all with high school classroom experience, brought their fields of expertise together to make what they feel is a very competitive program they would want their own kids to take. It is based on the idea that ACT test preparation should not be exclusive but instead be affordable and available to every young man and woman looking to take the exam.
Our mission with this course is to recognize that each student has an optimal personal best for a potential score on the ACT. We want to prepare your child to perform the best within his or her capabilities, and give him or her the advantage of knowing the test, but ultimately, it is his or her potential that determines his or her score.

3MT helped me to turn my once far-fetched dream into a reality! My ACT composite score jumped up four points from a 30 to my dream score of a 34 after taking their class and doing a lot of bursts! Before taking the 3MT class, I had looked through prep books and thought I was prepared for the ACT, but 3MT taught me so much more! They provided me with so many tips and tricks that were engrained into my brain, even on test day! The materials and teaching that they provided me with showed me exactly what I needed to do in order to raise my score.
The moms that taught the classes were not only helpful in preparing me for the ACT, but they were also empowering women! They were all compassionate, confident, established women who were interested in our successes with the ACT and in the community. I emailed Mrs. Leatherman on numerous occasions asking questions and asking for clarification on certain topics; she was more than willing to find answers for me in a timely manner.
In addition to the helpful sessions on English, Math, Reading, Science, and Writing, 3MT offered a test anxiety session. I put a lot of pressure on myself to perform well on the April test, so listening to Mrs. Atherton was extremely beneficial as she helped me to combat negative thoughts and visualize my ideal testing location.
If you choose to take the 3MT class, I highly recommend that you do many bursts (individual passages completed under time limits), as those helped me to perfect my timing for the test! Additionally, by doing these bursts, I was able to see which types of questions I missed and learn from my mistakes.
Overall, I was highly satisfied with the preparation that 3MT provided me with to conquer the ACT! I am so grateful for 3MT because they made my dreams come true and have taken a lot of pressure off of me as I continue my college search.
