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.
Wordpress Expert since 2007. I have sites that rank in the top 10 results for keyword searches with more than 40 million results. Right Now. My best day in traffic was over 6000 unique visitors. My highest ranking site in Alexa was 31,000 traffic ranking as a 1 man business. My Best ROI was making $1300 for every $100 I spent in advertising. If you build a wordpress site believe me when I say.. both free and very inexpensive paid traffic is out there
I am an expert in SEO and online marketing and sales in general. Paid, Organic, Or Viral On Social Media.
I also have achieved "Super Affiliate" status (Which means I have made $10,000 a month (or more) in commission marketing other peoples products for them) and can prove this as well. I have been working full time from home since 2002.
Bottom Line! I can help anyone optimize their business to get more leads, sales and long time repeat customers to their website or phone.

You got to know the rules 1st, before you can then break the rules. This is how you develop your own unique style. And it's what separates the Pro Players from the rest of the pack.

I think WORDPRESS is THE BEST, affordable tool for entrepreneurs to build their own websites. You have 100% control. But you DO need help to lower your ramp up time.
I have been building WordPress websites since 2009. But, I have been teaching most of my life. I've taught productivity and organizational skills, MS Office and meeting and event planning to entrepreneurs for more than ten years.
All that to say, I'm also an entrepreneur who is neither a stranger to teaching or to WordPress.
I'm a graphic designer and I teach WordPress in a way that incorporates SEO, my background in digital marketing, social media as well as my artistic and design strategies.
Teaching since 2009. My clients are typically small business owners and that's great because as a driven entrepreneur myself, we speak the same language. I share all the goodies I've learned over the years as well as teach you what you need to know about WordPress.
I have startup, corporate, association and small business experience.

Hello there! I help people make the transition into a tech career. I myself made that journey and have mentored many people successfully into a tech job.

I highly recommend him to anyone.

Tawannna was so patient with my lack of experience taking online classes. My intention was to brush up on my excel skills for a new job I am up for. She not only answered all of my questions throughly...she showed me short cuts I could use to make me look like a rockstar! I feel confident with what I have learned. And I would certainly recommend her to others I know looking to sharpen-up their skills.

Jocelyn is an excellent teacher. She was always responsive and flexible. She made learning fun every time we met. She was always in a chipper mood and made me feel like my priority was to be a better teacher
June 6, 2019
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. She had a lot of experience as a student and as an educator. She helped me to pick the right program, school, and prepare me for the GRE. i'm now enrolled in a program I love and I look forward to graduating and going into my new career.

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.
"Cheryl provided me a great Introductory lesson. I had some limited experience with WordPress and she helped fill in big gaps for me. She is an easy going
person with a friendly no pressure approach to teaching. Her recommendations for me to consider for my site were on point and appreciated. I will be scheduling more time with Cheryl."
"Another great lesson! Thanks"
"1st meeting == confirming objectives, helping to dig "deeper," ensuring she answered my questions, and giving me some "take-aways" that I can use immediat
ely. I have a very basic understanding of WP so this was ALL very helpful. Looking forward to the next lesson!"
"Good start. Was grateful that she stayed with me until we accomplished a goal to keep me working until we meet again. Very pleasant to work with. I pla
n to schedule another meeting."
"She has been most helpful in our first lesson. I have homework and am looking forward to the next lesson - Sharon"
"Real Easy to Learn from. A great Listener. Very Knowledgeable.
"Chris is a great teacher. He works to understand your goals and needs and keeps things moving. I look forward to more lessons!"
"I am new to blogging, and a stranger to WordPress. Once I set up my account and got a domain name, I knew I needed help. I'm also new to TakeLessons, as
well as a MacBook Pro, so I was very worried about my first lesson. Truly, I had no need to worry! Etana is a wonderful teacher, very calm demeanor, and seemed totally nonjudgmental about my lack of skills. I'm looking forward to next week's lesson."
