My name is Michael, I am a Vermont based Web Designer for 5+ years, with a primary focus in WordPress. I have a A.S. in Computer Systems Management, B.S. in Managing Information Systems and a M.S.

I am a Green Bay Packer's and Wisconsin Badgers fan.

I do most of my work in the WordPress Content management system and it combines the knowledge of both HTML and CSS, along with PHP/MySQL. Because of that I have to keep my skills and knowledge current when it comes to updating or troubleshooting code when a problem might arise or when a client needs to make changes to their websites.

My schedule is pretty open, so if you have any web design questions or WordPress based questions I would happily answer them for you.

Mostly fo fixing display issues with various WordPress plugins or setting up layouts with content ready to go live.

I am mostly self taught when it comes to web design but I have taken a few college courses that revolved around Web Design and Content Management systems.

This includes SEO, Image/website Optimizations, website security as well as graphic design and coding in HTML, CSS and learning PHP and MySQL as well.

Gets the job done!

As a new user of Wordpress, several questions pop up during editing and designing. After having already two lessons with Michael A, there aren't any questions he can't answer. HE KNOWS EVERYHTING! Michael A is very knowledgeable in Wordpress and many other plugins. He doesn't just answer every question but seek improvement by giving suggestions or other advice, which becomes a real eye-opener.

Great info!

During our session, Michael A. clarified a lot of information for me about WordPress themes, child themes, page builders, and search engine optimization. We did a walkthrough of some premium themes and discussed some common pitfalls to avoid when working with WordPress.

Great Tutor

I needed a refresher on how to manage a wordpress dashboard and blog. It had been a few years since I used one. I came ready with a list of questions I wanted answered. Michael A. answered all my questions and showed me how to post, SEO, do categories, edit the footer, widgets, add a copyright, edit and create pages. Now I can edit and manage my blog after 1.5 hours for $45. Can't beat that. Thank you.

Very Helpful and easy to work with

Going in, I had lots of question. We went through them all, one by one. He not only answered all my question but gave me a better understanding of WordPress. We hit a few snags but with his coding abilities, we overcame them. I would definitely recommend Michael and I now know where to get great help.

Great tutor well prepared

Michael went above and beyond to help me with my questions. I highly recommend using his services if you are in need of help with Wordpress. He took the time to even research what plugins might be good for me to use.

Excellent WordPress Tutor

My goal was to learn WordPress through building my website. Michael has a thorough knowledge of WordPress and CSS and patiently answered my many questions and helped me understand the basics. Also, the theme and builder I chose were a bit tricky, and Michael was able to quickly get a handle on it to help me achieve the look and functionality I wanted. He also showed me some CSS workarounds to resolve some font and layout issues, and so as a bonus, I know a tiny bit of CSS. I am sure I will have some questions in the future, and it’s great to know Micheal is out there as a resource.
