Today, the most important thing you can do is to truly be present with whatever it is you commit to doing this year.
The word “revolution” comes from the Latin, “revolutio,” which means “a turnaround.” The most important way to make that happen is by changing what you do on a daily basis.
I was talking with my daughter today about going back to school. While this school year was much better than last, she is still striving to reach her goals academically. I shared with her that the challenge is not your goals, but your habits.
I lost almost 100 pounds in 2016. It wasn’t until I saw that I had a habit problem and not a weight problem that I begin to work on what really mattered. I changed the habits that were formed from years of twisted thinking around diets and food .
Today I maintain my weight because my thinking has changed and therefore I’ve established habits that support the healthy lifestyle I’ve always desired .
Friends, your challenges this year are not about your goals; they’re about your thinking regarding what you hope to obtain.
As a mother and educator, I have offered effective revolutionary solutions to many students and their families. But I, too, have struggled. Now, I realize that the path to success starts with a mindset. As a parent, you must think of this endeavor as nothing short of revolutionary.
And here are three reasons that your revolution should start with Miracle Math Coaching (MMC):
- A Radical Approach to Learning
It takes revolutionary measures to participate in a revolution. MMC has broken the mold of educating children in a “one-size-fits-all” traditional system. What can be more “out of the box” than Brain-Based Learning?
MMC has significantly improved students’ academic performance with strategies focusing on how their unique brain works. We offer a neuroscience -based approach that tailors lesson plans not only to each student’s class performance, but also connecting learning to his or her way of thinking, life experiences and extracurricular passions.
Our system works to improve the brain and the grade simultaneously. By the time your child has participated in just a few months at Miracle Math, his or her brain will be faster, more focused and will retain more information than ever before.
Scientific research tells us that learning cannot happen in isolation. Students learn quicker and retain more knowledge if the material is presented in a way tailored specifically to them.
And that’s what we do.
No cookie cutter curriculum or group tutoring sessions. Your child will receive individual attention, learning from a lesson plan specifically developed for how his or her brain works best.
- A Passion for Teaching.
I founded MMC because I am absolutely, completely, 1,000 percent committed to the cause of educating young minds. More than 10 years ago, I was earning a fantastic salary as an actuary. As a Math geek, I was working my dream job – using statistics to conduct risk assessments for a major insurance company.
But I was miserable in the corporate world, and it showed in my work. I was eventually fired. Yet, one of my supervisors made me realize that this painful bump in my journey was really an opportunity in disguise. She said, “Deanna, it’s not that you’ve never known what you want to do. You’re just not doing it.”
That’s when I realized that my passion was to share with young students the learning techniques I developed to get myself through college. Academic coaching is my true calling.
- A Track Record in Student Achievement.
MMC, which adheres to California’s Standards for the Common Core, has been proven to increase exam scores, grade point averages and assessment test results. In 2015, students scored approximately 30 percent higher on a Math assessment test six months after enrolling in Miracle Math.
We have been voted “Best Tutoring Center in Fairfield” two years in a row. And the California Department of Education has recruited us to train school district educators in its supplemental education programs.
More important, if you and your child both fully participate, we can confidently guarantee that your child will improve in Math.
It’s true that our students earn higher test scores and better grades. But parents agree that Miracle Math’s true value is its ability to build students’ confidence and promote their general well-being.
