Learning Without Borders

Strength-Based Learning

What does your child LOVE to do?
What does your child do SO WELL that it amazes you?
What if we could build a learning plan around those interests and strengths?

Learning plans that build upon a learner’s strengths and interests
help them develop skills and capacities to grow to their fullest potential.

For 40+ years, I have worked with learners of all ages, and the parents, caregivers, and other caring educators who support them, helping them to: 

  • identify, celebrate, and enhance their unique strengths

  • discover, cultivate, and expand their interests

  • customize a learning plan that is meaningful and even fun

Using my own strengths (Learner – Input – Ideation – Connectedness – Individualization), I co-create relationships and both offline and online environments that nurture the love of learning and develop skills to take on the opportunities and challenges of the world. 

What Parents and Families are Saying

~ Tatum M., Mexico

“I worked with Monica Cochran from 2009 to 2013 in many capacities within SelfDesign Global and SelfDesign. Monica Cochran guided me as a parent on the path of self-designing an education for my children that was personalised and matched each of their unique learning styles. I found Monica to be extremely knowledgeable with regards to the developmental phases of a child's life and learning. She comes equipped with not only her education, but her many years of experience too. She connects easily with both parents and children of all ages. She worked with us with our children through different phases of their lives from six years of age through teenage years. We found her to be warm, confident, steady, intuitive, experienced, and likeable. She has a ton of resources to draw from as well. She helped pave the path for my children toward a positive experience with lifelong learning that continues with each of them today. In addition, Monica supervised me in SelfDesign Global as a learning consultant. I found her to be an invaluable resource for me and the families I worked with. I highly recommend her and her work.”
