Why 3MT...



Testimonial

I made it from the bottom of my range to the top with a 4 point increase in my composite. I am so excited and so grateful that you gave me the tools to do my best.

These scores qualify me for two goals I have- an advanced course in my senior year and the honors program at my top school.

Thank you so much for all of your help!

What I appreciated most about the 3MT course was the availability of the instructors and the information they presented on the process of preparing my daughter for the ACT test.

As a first time mother of an ACT test taker, I felt that 3MT helped our daughter take the test in confidence.

That meant the most to us as parents.

Before 3MT, I had no idea what to expect going into the ACT. Although I had taken practice ACT tests, I was still pretty nervous on how to approach the different sections and use my given time. The program really helped me to figure out different strategies to use on each section to optimize my time and get the best possible answers. I particularly struggled in the math section, but was able to raise my math score 2 points after going to the 3MT class. This class enabled me to take the test in a confident, calm manner and genuinely helped me to get a very good score.
