Terry, the instructor I had is great! He improved everyone's wordpresses dramatically with plug ins, then taught some general wordpress theme customization tools (including html and css), then spent time catering to everyone's specific needs to fix problems with each person's wordpress. No one can properly teach all the ins and outs of such a complex program in 2 hours, but he covered as much as he could, giving you the tools to continue teaching yourself.

Got some great tips. 2hr session that starts slow enough for beginners to follow (with prepared materials) and intermediate users can get some specific needs answered.
