Format

Rather than working on an hourly basis, I price my sessions by the “week” so to speak. Of course, we can customize the format based on your needs, but a “week” generally consists of the following:

  • Two Hour Session

    An in person meeting at your location or mine, at a time convenient for you.

  • Email Support

    I'll be readily available online to answer your questions and point you in the right direction during the week after our meeting.

  • Supported Work Time

    For one hour following our session, I'll be available for Q & A on Skype while you work. Kind of like private office hours.

  • Next Steps

    Leave our session with a tangible list of to-dos - a lot of times figuring out what's next is the hardest part.

We meet at a time and place convenient for you. I’m happy to travel to any public meeting location within a 45 minute subway ride of lower Manhattan. We can also meet in a cozy conference room at my coworking space located in the Flatiron District.

Private Instruction

We'll work side-by-side on your project, and cover what you need to know.

This service is intended for:

  • Web design professionals and individuals seeking help with a specific project or concept.
  • Non-technical production and marketing professionals looking to bring WordPress or front-end development in-house.

After an initial phone call, we will schedule a introductory session so I can get a good idea of your current set-up and skill set. Then we will determine the content to cover in a following 2 hour session where we work directly on your project.

Of course, we certainly can continue working together beyond your project. Here’s a super nice testimonial from a client I tutored for a longer term engagement:

Lara provided the best tutoring experience I’ve ever had. In the course of 6 months of one-on-one HTML/CSS sessions, I learned invaluable coding skills and best practices for building a responsive website from scratch using PHP, jQuery, CSS, and yes, Google. Lara is professional, approachable and makes learning fun! With weekly classes and “study hours” I built a complete website and I am applying the new skills I’ve gained in my projects at work. I can’t say enough about how beneficial my learning experience was and I would highly recommend Lara to anyone who is looking for focused and engaging tutoring. I’m also happy to note that Lara has also become a good friend.

Custom Classes

You want to take a coding class, but it doesn’t fit with your schedule or learning style – that’s where I come in.

This service is intended for:

  • Individuals looking to learn to code from scratch, but are not looking to take a coding class due to their schedule, current knowledge-base, or specific goals.
  • Small groups or teams looking to develop design and development skills beyond a specific project.

Just like a class you will have projects and assignments, but unlike a class, the curriculum will be created specifically for your schedule, skill level, and learning style.

Request example curricula, and start the converstaion.

Consulting

Gain the literacy you need to work with designers and developers, and I'll help you figure out where to find them.

This service is intended for:

  • Non-technical individuals or stakeholders embarking on a new project, or looking to reclaim an existing one.
  • Anyone looking to gain a vocabulary and understanding of responsive design and modern design development practices.

Following an initial consultation call, I create a two hour agenda covering the information you need to know for your project. At the end of our time, we’ll go over a clear plan for next steps and I’ll be available by email to give you a nudge in the right direction when you need it.

WordPress Day Trainings

Save time, money, and stress by managing your WordPress websites internally.

This service is intended for:

  • Small businesses and non-profits looking to manage websites internally
  • Corporate teams that would like to manage and create microsites with WordPress

Spend an entire day equipping your team with WordPress chops. Learn to manage your existing site, and learn to create new ones. Leave with a thorough foundation of not only how to use WordPress, but how to choose themes, essential plugins, and keep your website future-proof and healthy. Depending on the current skills of the team, we can also cover theme development and customization practices.

That's you learning WordPress!
