5 Star Feedback from our WordPress Traning Sessions

"Belinda [WP North East] was extremely patient and understanding. I now have a much better understanding of WordPress and I'm not so afraid to use the various elements to achieve a website that would better serve the company. Belinda is knowledgeable, kind and calm. The perfect trainer for someone like me, a little nervous of technology and lacking in confidence when it comes to using an unfamiliar programme . Thank you."
Automotive Firm, North Yorkshire

"Belinda [WP North East] prepared thoroughly in advance for each session, asking questions about my expectations, so that no training time was wasted. Her instruction was clear and very informative and she was prepared to accommodate my specific requirements taking a flexible approach to content during a couple of sessions enabling me to successfully launch my first website on schedule."
K. Welford. Designer

"Most useful part of the training was to have a deep understanding about the system
[WordPress] and how to integrate plugins and themes."

H. Zhao. Entrepreneur


""I would highly recommend Belinda's [WP North East) WordPress one-to-one training.  I needed help developing an existing wordpress site. She not only helped me do this but made sure I had the knowledge to do further work on my own.  She is very patient, straight to the point, doesn't mess around and is very easy to work with.  She will start from wherever your level of skill is and make sure you understand what she is teaching before moving on.  Excellent!"
