Very professional worker who is extremely knowledgable in WordPress and Wishlist Member. I would definitely hire again.
John is top-notch and a great guy to work with.
John has a relaxed and engaging manner. His advice is solid and the explanations are well thought out.
John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!
