What do I teach?

Well, that depends...what do you want to know?

  • Front-end Development

    Beginning to advanced HTML, CSS, Sass, templating, and workflow with Grunt. Responsive design throughout.

  • WordPress

    From an intro to the Dashboard to PHP and advanced theme development with Timber. And best practices all around.

  • Development Workflow

    From keyboard shortcuts to setting up your local development environment to version control with Git.

  • Freelancing

    Let's talk proposals, contracts, building your portfolio, getting work, and of course, getting paid.

  • Modern Best Practices

    We'll talk about the importance of content, device-agnostic design, and creating semantic, reusable code

  • Self Teaching

    Learn to continue learning. That means getting excited when things don't work, and learning to figure them out.

Service Options

I have a few service options varying from pure instruction to your handing the project off to me completely.

  • Teach Me To Fish

    You want to learn to code, but don't want to take a class. Maybe you already know some web development but need to fill in the gaps or work on a specific project.

  • Fish With Me

    Let's divvy up the work; I do the hard stuff, and you do what can be easily learned over a few sessions. Instead of handing everything off to a developer, you can partake in the process yourself and be prepared to support your project following it's completion.

  • Fish For Me

    I create custom WordPress websites for small businesses, with special attention to content strategy, brand, and performance. I also work with early stage startups designing front-end templates with squeaky clean markup and stylesheets.

What I don't do.

Just FYI.

I don’t work on full or part-time contracts.

My work is on a by-project basis. That being said, I would be happy to assist you in the hiring process, plus I often come across budding designers and developers in my teaching and would be happy to refer you.

I am not an “engineer” nor back-end developer.

I teach the concepts and have experience with a few server-side languages, but I am not a back-end developer nor JavaScript engineer. If you are looking to learn Ruby on Rails or Ember, I’m not your gal.

I won’t maintain your website without you.

If you are looking to hire someone to maintain an existing website so you can be completely hands-off, it’s not me. However, I’d be happy to refer you to another developer if I know one that suits.
