About This Class

Are you ready to learn how to make professional looking websites? And do you know you can do that without any knowledge of HTML or CSS coding?

You look around the web and see amazingly designed websites and wonder how you could make one on your own without having to spend a fortune?

Wordpress is a fantastic free web design tool that lets you create stunning websites with ease. And you are just in the right place to learn how to use it.

When I first had a look at Wordpress, I didn't even know how to install it. Does it need to be installed on a computer or is it on the web? A few years ago there was very little documentation, and the one available wasn't user-friendly at all. And finding video tutorials was even harder. Now you have so much choice, and that is also overwhelming. What course to buy? Which one is the right for me?


I have been building sites for almost a decade as a hobby and as a side business. I helped build knowledge base websites for small companies using Wordpress and I have a beginner mindset when it comes to teaching software. I like to learn and teach in plain English.
