Providing training is a particular strength for Edward. He very quickly can determine the clients’ technical understanding and is a very natural teacher. I found the training in wordpress extremely helpful and am now confident that I am able to keep the site updated.
I decided to use your services after we’d had a chat and you explained something that I previously couldn’t understand. You put it in really simple terms that I got – must be your background as a teacher!
Training with ee web design.

Who Should Do This Course:
The course would suit those who are confident computer users regardless of operating system, but you don't really need a lot of inside knowledge. To get the most out of the course you will need to be keen to learn and practice, and not afraid of making mistakes. You will need to come with suitable text and images for you site, and have access to a laptop with wifi and up to date browsers. Lastly you will need to have sensible expectations about what can be achieved in one day - after all 'e-bay wasn't built in a day' (and yes, someone asked me to replicate it once for a few hundred pounds!!!!!)
Before the course you will need to:
- ensure you have the correct domain and provide ee-web with details
- think about content for the first 5 pages
- bring content in digital form including text, a blog post, images. I am happy to advise about this of course
Techno mumbo jumbo
As an ex-teacher (of 13 years) I love the act of teaching. The 'ah ha' moment is priceless. People have said that I have the ability to get complex ideas over in simple language.
