In the traditional educational paradigm, only students with special needs are able to escape the one-size-fits-all learning approach. These students receive an Individualized Educational Plan. Monica’s experience is that all learners thrive when learning is personalized. When a learning plan is co-created that builds upon their strengths and interests, this helps them develop skills and capacities to grow to their fullest potential.
Over 40+ years as an educator, Monica has worked with learners of all ages — from babes in arms to adults, along with parents, caregivers and other caring educators. She has strived to create learning environments that nurture the love of learning and develop skills to become lifelong learners, ready to take on the opportunities and challenges of the world in which we live. Thanks to modern technology, Monica works with folks both locally in the Ann Arbor area and world-wide via the internet.
As Sir Ken Robinson said, “The answer is not to standardize education, but to personalize and customize it to the needs of each child and community. There is no alternative. There never was.”

Monica is a passionate advocate for life long learning. Her wealth of knowledge and practical advice was invaluable to our family. My son benefited enormously from having Monica as his learning consultant. Her fun approach and practical advice was so helpful to him, and to me, too. Monica has a holistic approach that incorporates so much more than just the academics. We looked forward to connecting over our Skype sessions and I always came away feeling more confident to continue on our homeschooling journey. I feel so fortunate that my son was able to learn in a way that was tailor made just for him. Our family can’t recommend Monica highly enough – Loretta D., Australia
