MESSAGE FROM THE HEART
Welcome to our Website!
“My name is Deanna Hurn, and I’m founder and executive director of Miracle Math Coaching. I’m also a certified advanced academic coach with two math degrees and many hours of neuropsychology training. And guess what?
Learning was a struggle for me.
Even though I loved math, I sometimes found myself behind in class, confused about the subject and disappointed that I’d bombed yet another test. I had to work twice as hard as my sister, Nieisha, who studied half as much and was on the honor roll.
But when I failed high school Geometry, I never questioned that I could learn it. I asked myself, “How do I learn?” It was obviously different than how my classmates, who earned A’s, learned.
I was obsessed with “hacking” my own brain (the fancy word for that process is “metacognition”).
Like anyone who struggles (or whose son or daughter struggles), I looked for help. Through external support and figuring out how my brain worked, I was able to better understand the material. I earned an A in Mr. Newton’s Geometry class at Valley High School.
I was changed forever because I had cracked the code to how I learned. I didn’t know it was a brain-based; I just knew that it worked.
After realizing the power of this new way of learning, I spent the rest of my high school years and my college career helping other students. I was a teaching assistant for Algebra II and for Mr. Newton’s Geometry class in high school, and I tutored students in college in the library and held study groups for the Math Engineering and Science Achievement (MESA) Program.
After graduation, I enjoyed and excelled at my work as an Actuary in the corporate world. But I lost the joy that I’d found when I was helping students connect their academics to how their individual brains were wired to learn.
Tutoring was magic for me because it combined my three passions: math, brain-based learning and inspiring others. I’m successful today because I’m doing what I’m passionate about and excel at. But more important, I believe I’m contributing to a greater good.
Simply put, I was born to create Miracle Math.
It was my destiny to develop a program that uses brain-based science in one-to-one coaching to help students break the code to their unique ways of processing information.
I hope you’re as excited as I am about this revolutionary way of learning. As someone who knows what it is to struggle, I am thrilled with all of my heart to show students and parents that there’s a better way to succeed in your learning.
Leading a program that is brain-based is exciting but not enough, true passion and purpose flows from the heart and that is how I endeavor to lead everyday.
