I have personally built dozens of Wordpress websites from scratch. I have building websites since I was a kid (back in the days of AOL, if you remember that!), and I love it. I currently actively run a website in my spare time that generates $500/month in income as a fun little side hustle.
I can teach you how to do the things you need to do while leaving out all the tech babble if you just want to know how to use it, or I can teach you what everything is and, generally, how it works.
I’d love to empower you to create your own blog or website, whether it’s for personal or business!
I love teaching and using humor to make learning fun. I like a lot of different styles of music, with a special love for blues, jazz, rock, and video game music. I've been playing the guitar for almost 20 years, the piano for nearly 15 years, and I've been singing since high school. I taught myself to play guitar because I wanted to perform songs while singing, and because I started to feel silly playing air guitar in front of the mirror in my room while singing along to my favorite songs.
Now, I'm a full-time licensed music teacher, a manager and singer for a choir that records video game soundtracks, and an online teacher. I really enjoy using people's interests to teach them instead of relying on the same old repertoire for every student. If it's not fun, you won't want to keep learning after all! I look forward to learning abou
t you, your musical goals, and the kind of music that inspires you to play/sing!
For prospective Wordpress students: I have been creating websites since middle school and currently own and operate a profitable website (vgmacademy.com). I love building sites and teaching others how to build sites themselves. Whether your focus is personal in nature or you’re looking to create a website for your business, I can help.
I'm a WordPress expert with numerous website builds for small businesses, bloggers, eCommerce stores, and Multisite users. For beginners, I'll walk you through the basics of the WordPress interface to create pages and posts, and select themes and plugins. For intermediate through advanced users, I'll walk you through installations (including Multisite), security, theme and plugin modifications, user experience and interface design, and SEO/PPC methodology specific for WordPress.
I am an internet marketer with 5 years of experience in highly competitive industries such as legal, insurance, real estate, and plumbing, to name a few. Come and learn WordPress and search engine optimization with me; I'll be your teacher that I wish I had when I was learning to develop websites and rank in searches.
WordPress used to be specifically a domain name aimed at web hosting (and still is) however with an open developing community a standardized set of files have been openly been distributed for anyone to use!
With these files you gain a set of tools: WP Control Panel Database integration Theme and child theme design. Plugin and widget systems CRM (Content Management System) -Admins -Users -Products -Pages -Posts
And countless possible customizations and extensions. Today's Digital Market demands more developers capable of running and troubleshooting WordPress code.
With eight years experience at Valencia College and 2 years at University of Central Florida I have experienced a wide variety of students between the ages 7 to 60 years. This experience has enabled me to customize lessons in one to one sessions with each unique student and their unique needs.
My teaching methodologies include plenty of visual aids, simile's, and clear communication with a strong emphasis on Socratic questioning to stimulate critical thought in helping to understand and take control of the information to be learned.
Sessions include visual and auditory components to learning and for students who need kinetic interaction to fulfill their learning process assignments can be assigned or custom problems can be created to be solved with an overview process of what is understood and what needs to be better diagnosed.
Depending on what your goal is I can personally tailor the lesson(s) to you.

This was my first time using and Take Lessons and my experience with the instructor Adam has been amazing. Adam understands how to explain very technical concepts in way that anyone can understand.

I highly recommend him to anyone.

I was unsure if I wanted to go back to school. I was unsatisfied at my job and I didn't know what to do next. Jocelyn was great in that she listened to me but allowed me to make up my own mind.

I'm a WordPress Expert & Consultant specializing in Divi (the most popular WordPress theme in the world), as well as the online strategy necessary for effective business websites.
I've been working with WordPress since 2009 (I taught myself how to build my very first Wordpress website in late 2009 and launched it in 2010 - it was A LOT harder back then! So I come from the era of truly building a Wordpress site from scratch and then learning how to make it MUCH easier these days).
I then took tech/web design courses in 2012 and 2013 to hone my skills and launch my first online business offering Techie VA and Web Design services to other entrepreneurs.
From 2014 to today (literally 2019) I've been taking online business and marketing courses to continue to build my knowledge for my own business as well as teaching others.
15 I started teaching other entrepreneurs everything I know about Wordpress and online business. And now I'm ready to teach you! :)
Outside of my education and experience, I am genuinely passionate about your passions, your gifts, the message you have to share, and ultimately helping you share your greatness with the world.
Overall, I’m passionate about people SHOWING UP in the world to do what they were meant to do and live the lives they were meant to live. For many of us, this includes online business and what I like to call "Passionpreneurship".
The technical and strategic aspects of these ventures should NOT hold us back from making a difference and achieving greatness.
This is why I’m also passionate about MAKING TECHNOLOGY DOABLE so we can remove the roadblocks that may be holding you back from doing your important work in the world.
I'm here to teach Wordpress for this very reason, to make things as achievable as possible for all those who really want it and are willing to do what it takes to get it.

My name is Luis Urrego and I was born in Colombia South America. I came to the United States when I was 7 years old and was raised here for most of my life. I am bilingual with my first language being Spanish and my second language English.
I currently work as a Web Designer for the Hall County School District in Gainesville G.A. and have been with them for over 8 years. I have been doing Web Designing for over 20 years though.
I am also a church minister and missionary and have done quite a few and extensive trips to Spanish speaking countries where I have had to both preach, interpret, and translate between English and Spanish. I have also done interpreting work for hospitals and am certified as an health care interpreter for the state of South Carolina.
One of my past time recreations is playing the game of Chess. I love the game
itself for the fun factor, but mainly for the social and behavioral developmental aspects of it. I believe it is a very beneficial game not just for adults, but especially for children to help develop their brain at an early age.
My main goal is to serve others in the best way possible and to see that my students become stronger and are satisfied in the area that I'm teaching them in.
