Your Online WordPress Tutor

Meet Your Instructor

I’m a creative freelancer based out of the U.S. (near the Rocky Mountains). I have worked for companies & agencies of all different sizes, from big name brands such as Microsoft to smaller niche companies serving their local communities. 

I’ve been building WordPress sites for about 6 years now, the first site I ever built was terrible but I’ve continued to improve and learn new software and strategies to help create WordPress sites.  

Custom Built Sites

If you didn’t know it by now, you’re on my site…welcome! I’m a big fan of building sites that incorporate video, small animations, and as things progress, data analytics. 

This site was built using WordPress (of course) and hosted via Bluehost. The theme used is the “Hello” theme by Elementor. I always recommend starting with you end goals and reverse-engineering to make the most of your time and learning experience. Throughout the lessons we will either build your site or use mine as a demo to reference.

Some FAQs For Beginning WordPress Users:

How Long Does It Take To Learn WordPress?

Like learning any new skill, there’s a bit of a learning curve. BUT don’t let this discourage you as the basics are easy to grasp and no coding is required. 

The time required to learn WordPress stems from the what and specifics that you’d like to create. You could spend days, weeks, even years going through every free WordPress pdf or course on the internet but this might drive you crazy with the amount of time spent piecing information together. 

Do I Need To Know Coding?

No! You do not need to know how to use any custom coding in order to use WordPress. Once you’ve mastered the basics you can, if you feel inclined to, add custom CSS or animations to the site but there is absolutely no need to start off in the deep end. 

How Hard Is It To Learn WordPress?

If you’re digging around the internet for individual answers, it could take you months to find the “perfect” theme (which doesn’t exist by the way) or the perfect banner image. 

OR..you could spend an hour with a friendly online tutor that helps to pair the visual components of WordPress with the information needed to create your project.

Is WordPress Free?

Absolutely! WordPress is one of the largest CMS (Content Management Systems) that is available and free online. The small price tag for WordPress sites come when you start using Premium Themes (which are a scam) or custom domain names/URLs for your site. 

These are relatively cheap however, hosting plans starting from roughly $3/month – less than a cup of coffee. 

What Hosting Company Do You Recommend?

The hosting provider that I use and recommend is called Bluehost. They typically have some sort of new user bundled deal which I recommend checking out, regardless of how you learn to use WordPress.

One of the reasons that I recommend Bluehost is the fact that they include WordPress installations for any domain hosted with them, unlike GoDaddy or another hosting provider which will try and charge you for every “extra.”

Pricing: Your First Session Is Free
(pay as you go)

The first session is on me, it’s actually required before signing up for any of the other bundled deals. This is to ensure that everyone’s goals match up and to learn more about your building-style. 

What Is The Cost For an Online WordPress Tutor?

The first intro session is 100% free but required before signing up for any plan below.

Why is it required? I want to make sure that we’re a great fit for each other and answer any questions you might have about my teaching style or what to expect. 

In this intro session, I’ll get a sense of how to best tailor any future lessons for you and we can even begin answer some of your initial WordPress questions. 

*YES, you can schedule this new student intro session even if you don’t know whether you will continue or not. 

Is There a Contract Required?

No, there are no contracts, expectations or hidden charges on my end. Think of me as a guy who likes to chat about creative website builds and you can bounce any questions or WordPress topics off my brain. I’m here to point you in the right direction and take you from beginner (or no knowledge at all) to an advanced user who can build and edit pages all on your own.
