Our mission at 3MT Test Prep is to give every student the advantage of a general ACT prep course that will both calm anxieties and provide strategies to improve test scores.
Our ACT Test Prep Motivation
As parents, we want our children to have the advantage of feeling calm and prepared as they take this important test that impacts their future college choice. Our course is designed to help students know what to expect, and also to give them the advantages we have learned throughout our study of the ACT exam. Thank you for choosing 3MT Test Prep to help give your son or daughter an edge to be more competitive in his or her college entrance process. We always appreciate any feedback, and positive personal recommendations are always welcome.
Introducing the "My Plan" Calendar
We at 3MT Test Prep believe that the ACT requires not only the content of the class but also a commitment from students to practice on their own and apply the principles they have learned. We know this is a lot to expect from a busy teenager. Practice tests are critical for preparation, but to expect your son or daughter to sit down for a three hour test is both overwhelming and unrealistic. That is where My Plan comes in to serve as a daily schedule to hold students accountable to commit to small bursts of practice.
My Plan is a calendar of preparation activities that students can utilize to maximize the effectiveness of our class. My Plan gives the students a structured and guided map between now and the test (and future tests if taken) to carry out this plan beyond the scope of our class. We will show the students how to break the test down and look at it in pieces that they can practice independently in 5-15 minute time periods. By entering their own personal plan in the calendar, students are both visually and concretely reminded of their responsibility, and they have a specific map of how to get it done. For example, students may use the 'burst' options at the bottom of the calendar to choose a five minute science section and/or a nine minute reading section for one day - basically, fifteen minutes of practice which is then 'checked off' by them once they complete the task. By the end of the two weeks of our class, they have the advantage of taking many practice sections, but in small manageable and much less daunting pieces. The goal of the plan is to put them in charge of their practice in a way that is realistic and attainable.

We know your rarely hear about where your ACT/SAT test prep students end up so we just wanted to let you know about our three children. All three participated in your test prep courses.
Our first child ended up at Drake University where she became inspired and graduated in only two years with dual degrees, a Bachelors in Creative Writing and a Bachelors in Advertising Journalism. She took a job locally for a firm as their Manager of Web Design and Social Media. She has since gotten married, as well.
Our second child is currently a sophomore at UNL, majoring in Computer Engineering. He took your ACT class twice, which we feel helped him raise his ACT from a 28 to a 30 and then again to a 32. We feel your classes helped him the most.
Our third child is a senior at Burke and took your ACT classes twice plus the SAT prep course for the schools she would be applying to. We are very pleased to announce that last Friday she was offered admission to Stanford University in California. We are all excited at this opportunity for her to attend one of the 'best' universities in the United States and even the world.
It was always important to us for our kids to get great college educations which could then open up exciting opportunities in their lives. We feel that your classes have helped us in getting them there.
