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.

Majoring in classical guitar performance at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts I was a part of many performance opportunities. These included solo classical guitar recitals, weekly performance class, a collaboration with the Columbia City Jazz Dance Company, and a performance at the Columbia Museum of Art to name a few. Now I frequently participate in songwriting showcases, street performances, and collaborati
ons with bands and music groups of many different genres.
In a lesson with me you will be focusing on four main areas:
1] REPERTOIRE: Songs you are working on in preparation for performance or just to play for fun! 2] MUSIC THEORY: Exercises in ear training, note-reading skills, sight-reading skills, and overall knowledge of how music works. 3] IMPROVISATION: Learn drills to improve solo skills and increase your confidence jamming with other musicians. 4] TECHNIQUE: Guitar lessons focuses on how to properly use the left and right hands in a way that that is relaxed and tension free. Voice lessons entail learning how to breath properly, prevent vocal strain, and expand your range.
In addition to instrument lessons I also provide Songwriting Lessons, Music Theory Lessons, and Music Performance Lessons for more advanced students + I teach Recording, Web Design, and Graphic Design subjects for Artists or others looking to learn how to promote themselves or their projects. (Subjects Include: Logic Pro X, WordPress, Web Design, Graphic Design, HTML, CSS, & More!)

I've been sewing since I was 13. I've sewn things over the years such as dresses, pajamas. I do a lot of tailoring things too. I just love to sew, and I love teaching people to sew too!
The way that I teach is to help the student develop their own style. I have students work on their own individual projects that they pick out while asking me questions that they might have while they are doing their project.
However, if they would like there is an option for me to develop lessons for the student on certain sewing techniques that the student could learn. Although, be aware that learning how to sew takes time and that all the techniques of sewing cannot be done all at once.
Then, there is the third option that the lesson could be a mix of the student doing what they want (choosing their own project) and learning some pre-designed
My first goal is to give my students all of the tools they need to feel confident from the very first lesson. I would like for all of my students within the first lesson to finish either of two basic projects (pajama pants or a draw string bag).
My lessons are not like videos you may find online. Meaning projects will take longer than you think they will. I will work with you to properly construct a quality finished project without too many frustrations and in a timely manner. I recommend buying lessons in 90 minute packages, since sewing always takes longer than expected.
THE BEGINNER SEWER
In these lessons we will go over the following, which can be adapted to how you want:
- Sewing safety and how to use a machine - Learn about the sewing tools you'll be using - How to read, cut out, layout, and follow a basic pattern instructions - How to pin and sew a seam, finish seams and sew hems - Learn to sew on an elastic band (to pajamas or for a tote). - Learn how to unpick your projects when a mistake is made. - Learn how to do a basic stitch and the gather stitch. - TAKE AWAY PROJECTS: - Pajamas - Sewing Tote - Basic Dress - Pillow case
THE INTERMEDIATE SEWER - Cement what you learned in the while a beginner. - Learn to hand sew hems etc. - Learn about different fabrics and when to use them. - Sew a basic zipper onto clothes or bags. - Learn about the different foots. - Learn to do other stitches -TAKE AWAY PROJECTS - Intermediate Dresses/ Clothes - Bags
Whether it is for a hobby, to decorate your house, to prepare for design school, or to make your own clothes, I can teach you from the very basic sewing skills, to more advance topics such as modifying your patterns to make clothes that fit.

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.

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

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.
