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 share 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.

This morning I have completed my lessons with Rick for Word Press. I’m ao excited to get started applying everything I learned with Rick. Can’t say enough about Rick and his teaching methods. Truly patient and his step by step teaching is excellent! Now when I view YouTube tutorials, I have an idea what is being spoken about! Was lost before Ricks classes. He goes above and beyond! Highly recommend! Thank you Rick!!

I can show you how to set up a wordpress website, what plugins you will need, how to make it search engine friendly and provide resources where you can find help on coding and other problems.

About Jason
NOTE: Please check with me before booking as that my schedule changes frequently.

My educational background is in journalism with a minor in English and I've always been enamored with the literary and visual arts. I published my first book featuring poetry along with photography in 2006 and have since written four more.

My photography has been published in several magazines as well including the following:

Fahrenheit USA – Nov. 2015
My Belleza Inc. – April 2016
Tres Jolie – May 2016

In 2007, I started the business called Three Rivers Creative Arts providing creative service inc
luding photography, writing, editing and graphic design.

As a person who likes the opportunity to help others and to work with all of these types of areas, I thought that a great website like this one here at TakeLessons could allow me to do both.

Jason is easy going and open to any format you need. He was patient with my learning style and went over things I was most interested in. I appreciate his honesty and his sharing of tools to simplify my design needs. All and all a good first experience for me with takelessons and instructor. ;)

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.
