I recently built my new professional website with Ruth and Dawn (holding my hand the entire way) in one of their two-day workshops. I had already spent many hours with techie friends and family, trying to build a WordPress site. This was an eleventh-hour attempt to do it myself so I could make frequent updates… It was the highlight learning experience of the year.

I recently attended Ruth & Dawn’s WordPress workshop. Even though I was completely new to WordPress, I understood all the information and concepts I needed to build the website I wanted. They both have great knowledge and experience.

I definitely recommend this workshop to anyone who wants to learn how to build their own website, as well as be able to manage and update their content.

I would highly recommend Ruth and Dawn to anyone looking to explore the world of WordPress and take control of your website and not be dependent on others.


I recently had the opportunity to attend the LearnWP workshop with Ruth and Dawn at the helm. I was reluctant to register at first thinking that it might be too much ‘techno-speak’ for me and that I might not know enough to actively participate. I was pleasantly surprised when I walked in, was made to feel immediately welcome and had no trouble following along. I came away from the workshop with the knowledge I needed to take my blog to where I wanted it to be and the confidence that I could do it on my own. I feel that the ongoing support I have received, not only in helping when a problem arose, but also in the personal support of my endeavours, has set me up for ultimate success. Thank you, Ruth and Dawn!

I am so glad I decided to take this 2-day course. I kept telling myself that I could learn WordPress on my own, but I still found the vast amount of information around the WP platform overwhelming.

Ruth & Dawn were able to introduce it in a way that made sense without being too simple or too complicated… I would totally recommend this class to anyone interested in learning WordPress!

M.A. Nurse and Associates

This workshop exceeded my expectations! Dawn and Ruth walked this internet-illiterate writer through the foreign territory of the web-world. They made the material accessible and the process very do-able, even for someone who has a love-hate relationship with technology.

I felt energized and empowered by setting up a website.


Wonderful workshop! Very informative, clear information, great step by step instructions. Both Ruth and Dawn were helpful and supportive. They did a great job presenting the material. The documents provided, slides and all other content were very helpful and detailed.

Candice Hodgson

Ruth and Dawn are the dynamic duo of WordPress! They’re both incredibly patient, knowledgeable teachers and provide a fun, supportive atmosphere in which to learn.

I’m thrilled with my new website, and I’m proud to know I created it myself through LearnWP!

Carole Filion

We’re absolutely thrilled with the results we have achieved from the LearnWP workshop. We’ve had a website for a really long time but changing content was so difficult. We also didn’t know much about SEO.

Since we’ve taken the workshop, we’ve got an easy-to-manage website and we’re showing up at the top in Google for our key search terms. That’s what we call excellent results.

Parent Education Network

Ruth and Dawn delivered a content-filled, and interesting course that kept my attention throughout, even when they covered areas I thought I was competent in, like blog posting. I liked the hands-on approach and immediate assistance with questions and issues. They provided so many tips and experienced know-how, that I came away feeling confident I could make some positive changes in our company site. The two days were well thought out and structured, and the comprehensive documentation provided makes it a lot easier to put it all into action.

Heather Bayer

I knew a little about WordPress before I took the workshop and already had two WordPress sites online. I was amazed at how much more I learned that allowed me to really improve my sites, thanks to Ruth and Dawn.

I recommend the LearnWP workshop, even if you have some basics in WordPress. You’ll be amazed at how much you can learn!

Joan Vinall-Cox

Dawn and Ruth are supportive, knowledgeable and approachable teachers. They were kind and helpful throughout.

After the workshop, I continued to seek their support and it was given with no hesitation. I can’t believe my website is live and I have Dawn and Ruth to thank for this!

Excellent no-nonsense workshop! I learned enough in 2 days to layout my content, showcase my galleries, set up contact and blog pages and go live within a couple of weeks.

The technical support and theme setup are a very valuable bonus.

Ruth and Dawn are skilled facilitators and teachers. They are able to accommodate the needs of participants with various learning needs. As a person who has limited experience, I felt that there was amble support and patience. I like the idea of gaining more control over my website by learning how to navigate WordPress.
