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.

About Matthew

Hi.. My name is Matt. I'm a very energetic, friendly, understanding & passionate music coach who has worked with students & clientele throughout the US. Possessing more than 30 years of music training & music industry experience, I've been able to take people's Playing to amazing levels.

I've networked or shared the stage with many famous NW music legends:
1.) Roger Fisher- Heart-2013 Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame Inductee
2.) I'm Pacific NW Guitarist for Rudy Parris from NBC TV's "The Voice!" - Go Team Blake!
3.) Lynn Sorensen- Paul Rogers/Bad Co/KZOK's Spike & Impalers
4.) Donny Evola - Geoff Tate/Former Queensryche/Foghat

In fact everyone I've mentioned above are pro all the way and great guys as well. I

"m honored to have played with them.

I challenge my students to view music more than just as a "skill", but also a tool to communicate effectively and to combat life's obstacles.

I have had many guitar teachers myself including one true Famous Rock Star legend here in Pacific NW. Congrats Rog. U Earned It, & inspire myself, & others everyday.

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.

But even if you don't want to play professionally, maybe you just want to learn a few chords, licks, songs, for yourself, or to impress friends. That's okay too!

I welcome every level and style. I always learn something from my students.
That's what music is all about. Learning & trading tips and licks from other musicians.

Bottom Line Is... I can help you learn and progress on your instrument faster...

Let me be the Music Coach to get you there!

The most important thing in a lesson with me is to learn while having FUN! I am a very laid-back teacher who wants to focus on music making you smile. We will choose material and a pace of learning that will keep you excited to rehearse and return the following lesson improved!

PERSONALIZE your guitar lessons by learning techniques used by your favorite artists in "their" songs.

Most All Styles/Genres/Experience Levels Taught - We go over everything systematically. Music Theory, Songwriting, Chords, Scales, Determining Key Of Songs, Performance, etc

After 3 to 6 months, you should expect to be playing some of your favorite songs and artists accurately

Be sure to check out some of my you tube demos. Let me be the Music Coach to get you there!

Do-it-yourself WordPress is deceptively simple and incredible complex. To Many people it's like a 1,000 piece puzzle without the boxtop with the picture.

Creating a WordPress website begins with lining up your resources with a domain name and webhosting. That's before you even install WordPress. I teach you how to do that.

Next, you need to select a theme, add plugins, apply widgets and create menus. You'll want to understand concepts and learn the vocabulary. I teach all of that.

Finally you add content, tweak your design, engage SEO, and set up "best practices" maintenance. I guide you through doing that yourself, too.

If you've already started we can pick up where you left off, or we can start from scratch.

I have the patience if you have the passion!

About Rick

An oft-repeated phrase is "Been There, Done That." It describes my nearly 30 years of experience with computers, computer programs, websites and on the Internet ~~~ this section is about how "my experience" can serve you.

I created my first website over 25 years ago. In the 1990's, I hosted websites and email from servers in my basement. (That means I'm good at trouble-shooting and putting out fires!)

Today, I am a teacher, guide, coach, mentor, web builder, a domain registrar, and a web hosting re-seller. My latest interest is creating and showing video.

From that first day, decades ago, I've been teaching. I've taught one-on-one, taught small groups of 5-20, and addressed a full auditorium. I was an adjunct instructor for MS Office products at a community college. When I complete chapter 3 of something then I'm prepared to shar

e what I've learned in chapter one!

We will work together online, and maintain follow-up contact by phone and email.

Or, if you're in the Tampa / Clearwater / St. Petersburg (Florida) area, our first session can be held the old-fashioned way: face-to-face! (I actually prefer that.) We'll meet at a study room at a library half-way between us.

I like to use analogies, and they work best with an over-40 audience. Many millenials today have never seen a dimmer switch on a car floor or carried a digital pager.

I am available for all things computer: at home, at work, on your local network and on the Internet.

_____
PS: At the end of the last century I was assembling computers by hand, but don't tell anyone. They will want to use my trouble-shooting skills to help fix their hardware, too.

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.

About Cheryl

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.

IMPORTANT - When getting in touch
Please give me an idea of where you need help. Plugins, installation, navigating a theme, getting started, etc.
If there is a website you need help with, please provide URL.

Absolutely Amazing!!! She was very helpful and provided great information and knowledge. If she did not know the answer directly, she would provide resources and assistance that helped during the session to resolve the question and resources for future questions. I would definitely recommend her and also use her services again.

My name is Chris and I am a Software Developer. I would love to be your tutor and teach you about wordpress. I have more than 5 years of experience in programming and I am constantly up to date with the latest technologies which is why I believe to be the best tutor.

About Chris

Hello I'm Chris! I am a Senior Software Developer specialized in website development. I graduated cum laude with a Bachelor's degree in Information Technology and a specialization in Web Applications.

I am tutoring students in computer knowledge and Information Technology since the beginning of the year.
I worked as a Web Producer at Barnard College in New York City for a full semester and I also worked as a Lead Developer during three years.
I currently work full time as a Software Developer with a start-up in New Jersey and I am also finishing my Master's degree in Information Systems.

Learning about computers, development in school and knowing how hard it can be, I came to a realization that what we learn is most of the time not what is being used on the job. Therefore I try to teach and give my students the exact skills they will

need in order to succeed in their careers and personal endeavors.

My lessons aim to everyone: children, teenagers and adults with all levels.
The method I use is based on active learning with interaction in order to make my students practice what they learn directly on their computers.

As a tutor but also as a professional, I want to benefit the students I work with as much as possible to achieve that I make sure that my lessons are always tailored to the students and as personal as possible. I am also open to suggestions because the most important thing for me is that the students enjoys our lessons.

I am very easy going and will always answer you as fast as I can so please feel free to reach out to me with any questions!

As a Software Developer I am very competent with basic computer programming. I have a very good knowledge of HTML, Javascript, CSS, JQuery, Angular and other front-end languages. I also teach about content management systems such as Wordpress and Magento.
Having worked at an IT help desk, I also have very good knowledge of computers in general such as Macbook and Windows based computers.

Please reach out if you are interested in learning about website development or just computers in general. I can not wait to help you reach your goals!

We will start by getting to know one another a bit so I can gain a clear idea of what you are hoping to gain from our sessions. Whether it be an intro to a software or taking developing a full start to finish project. After our first meeting I will use my 11 years of professional experience to develop a unique lesson plan for you and your goals.

About Etana

Hi! My name is Etana, M.S. I am a detail oriented, self starting designer with 12 years of professional experience under my belt. From print to web, design is not simply what I do for a living, it is my passion.

I run a Tempe, Arizona based business called SocietyJazz = ‘Society’ as in the totality of people and ‘Jazz’ as in all that stuff. Society Jazz brings together my core concepts: People .Passions . Environments.

I bring this philosophy into my teaching method: I believe that each person is uniquely different so therefore their love/passion in life and how they bring it into the world is their own. I use this philosophy to create unique lessons based on you, how you learn and what you want to learn.

There isn't a creative challenge I won't take on with you no matter your experience level. My greatest joy is to share my pas

sion of Design with you.

About Adam

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.

Learn how to build and design your Wordpress website WITHOUT code! It's no longer necessary to learn coding skills in order to create an attractive, professional, functional and compelling website. I've been working with WordPress since 2010, building and designing numerous sites for myself and other entrepreneurs. I'll teach you everything you need to know to build your site from scratch and design it beautifully. I also teach how to use certain tools to make tech easy for you so you can overcome your tech-phobia! Each lesson is tailored to your specific questions, struggles, and website goals. You'll walk away with the confidence to create and design your own business website and be proud to show it off to prospective clients & customers, colleagues, family, and friends.

About Alexis

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.

In 20

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 a great learning experience about WordPress. I was not familiar with the program at all until I went to a workshop she presented at. Che
ryl did not present the information in terms that were overly technical, making it easy to understand. Cheryl is definitely well versed in this topic and was very helpful in answering questions after the workshop. I would recommend her to anyone seeking to learn more about WordPress"
