Hi, Coach Michelle! Thank you so much for your guidance and support. The course really helps me to widen my creativity and design skills. The video lessons are easy to follow and understand.

Coach Michelle is an amazing mentor. She always motivates her students to give their best in everything they do and she really is a master of her craft (Web Design). She is also generous in sharing her knowledge and experiences in her Web Design career. I consider her as one of the best mentors in my Freelancing career.

Thanks for all your help and guidance and allow me to say that you have been a great help in getting myself to really finish this course.
Hi Coach, I have registered/purchased many digital marketing courses online in the past (prior to knowing about FVA), but have NEVER finished any single one of them. I’ve registered for 4 of your courses since I think 2 months ago and I’ve finished 2 out of 4. Along the way I always make sure I take action on what I’ve learned by ‘Doing’ and applying the knowledge to my own business and for my clients. Why was I able to finish your courses and not the previous ones from DigitalMarketer.com, TeamTreehouse.com, and Udemy? Because there is coaching and accountability. Plus you always reply to emails requesting support and you make it a point to follow-up on our progress. And we’re part of a community on Facebook where we can ask for help and share our ideas. .— These are what I think makes a big difference and what separates you from the rest.
Hi Coach Michelle, I learned a lot from the course. It’s very detailed that I don’t have any questions yet. It will really help me boost my freelance business and I’ll have more chances to get clients. My favorite coaching session is when I build an online shop using WooCommerce. I like it because it makes it possible to sell or showcase your services even if you don’t have physical products yet. Though I’m not yet done designing it’s already functional. I also feel fulfilled because it gives my creative skills an upgrade. It’s really worth the price. Thank you for your guidance and looking forward to more projects related to web design. Let’s keep in touch.
- Hi Coach, Thank you for helping me throughout the course. This course serves as a refresher since I was stagnant for 9 years in my field. It also helped me build up my confidence level. Keep up the good work in helping others in improving their skills. God bless and more power to your business consultancy!Thanks, Cris
Hi Coach Michelle, Wow, I’m so happy that I made it! I’ve learned so much about the course especially the web designing part. Also, it’s good to know that I can sell products and make a membership site using my website. I’m planning to build a community for aspiring business owners using the membership site. Thank you so much.

Hello Coach Chelle, It is truly a fulfilling experience to have my own website that I made myself. Before taking this lesson I got a free page from wordpress, I don’t remember if it was .com or .org I got it from. I wanted to create a blog and thought of making it a portfolio. Getting tutorials from youtube was not enough and still left me blank as to where and how to do it. Wednesday, September 23 at 7:30PM is a day I will not forget as it was the day I decided to enroll. It did not take much thinking but I had a certain feeling so I had to go for it. The first video, CS1, was exciting as I am actually getting a domain name using my own name. Then real work started with CS2, CS3…but then CS4 got really exciting as I was putting in together the elements that will make up my website; logo, iris flower icon, banner, photos, etc. The one hour video was a lot of work I would say…but the end result was so fulfilling and was ecstatic to see my website come alive with colors, motion effects, texts and images. Thank you for accommodating all our inquiries. I am so glad I made it to the end of the lesson.
- Maraming salamat po! This is the first step achieving my goal to be a web designer.I still have long ways to go but having the fundamentals is very important before venturing into freelance web design.Hope to work with you someday and the FVA team. God Bless!

It’s so nice to create a website and I learned a lot thank you so much for guiding me through it. Thank you
Thank you so much, Coach Michelle! You’re very helpful and patient. I really appreciate it when you reply immediately if I have questions. It helped me a lot in finishing the course. 🙂
Thanks for all the learnings! It’s been a very interesting journey for me. I am overwhelmed as this is new to me and I hope I can remember everything you have taught me. God bless!
Hi Coach Michelle, Thank you po I learned a lot in this course. The coaching sessions were easy to follow since all the steps are really being shown. Also, you answer our concerns/clarifications and give feedback as well.
- Thank you Michelle! I learned a lot from your course and especially love your teaching style. It flows perfectly and very easy to follow.
Hi Coach Chelle, Indeed I’ve learned a lot from this course. I still can’t believe that I created a website within a month without having prior knowledge of this subject. Please don’t get me wrong, my website still needs improvement, but as the saying goes, “a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” and for me this is one big step towards achieving my dream. By profession I’m from a finance background and I previously thought that web design is just for programmers, developers, or people with IT background until a friend recommended this course. I already told you before and i will say it again, your video lessons are easy to follow and the way you explained things makes it easier to understand. Thank you for the opportunity to be one of your students. May God bless you, coach Chelle and I can see that FVA Family will continue to grow even more. Thanks again and until next time, Patrick
I really enjoyed the course, I learned more than I expected to learn. Our coach was very responsive and helpful with our problems. will definitely rercommend

Thank you Coach Michelle for the Guidance. Thank You for always answering my questions in our Group Chat. I havent met you in person but I can feel that you are so approachable. What i like about the coaching was your time to hear us. Its good that you are just a chat away when we have troubles on designing our website. Actually Coach, this is my 3rd course here in FVA hehe but this is my first time to submit assignments and finish it in just 1 week. I hope coach you will still help and guide me as i move forward with this journey that i want to pursue.Thank You So Much Coach Michelle. Thank You Coach Grace. Thank You FVA.Keep Safe and God Bless
Hi Coach, First of all, thank you for this wonderful opportunity to learn web design. Course Sessions are very comprehensive .and easy to follow.
I really appreciated FVA Academy and Coach Mich because they had given me enough additional knowledge and support in creating and optimizing my website’s portfolio to attract and hopefully start to find prospective clients. I was never wrong when I decided to enroll with the academy and right know, I’m currently building my career as a freelancer with what I learned from them. The videos and tutorials were helpful because of its step-by-step and basic approach which helped me a lot as a beginner in this field. I’m proud to be one of the student of FVA Academy especially as a Web Designer Student! Thank you so much po!

- I want to thank Coach Michelle for the lessons and tips in this entire course! I’m a teacher too so I know the joys (or frustrations) you might feel for your students as they submit their portfolios. Thank you because the lessons are well-organized and I can easily follow through. I thought it would be very hard since my wordpress background is only about blogging (way back in 2007). So I am hesitant to take this course and if not for my sister’s encouragement, I will not pursue this. Hopefully, as a returning OFW, I can use the knowledge and skills I have learned in this course to my freelancing career endeavor. Again, thank you so much for all the patience and helping me solve some technical issues in my website. God bless you and the FVA family!
- At first, I almost wanted to quit upon hearing all the technical terms being used. I felt like I was experiencing a “digital shock” knowing that I am not a computer savvy. I took courage to really understand the lesson. The pacing of the lesson and the manner by which it was explained was also a big help for me to finished the task. The sense of fulfilment I get from seeing my “own” website beginning to take shape is ineffable. Thank you for sharing your knowledge. This is something that I am forever grateful with.
- The lecture videos are really helpful. They are clear and easy to follow.I really learned a lot in less than a month. Thank you!
- Thank you Coach Michelle! Thank you for the guidance, patience and understanding. I did learned a lot from the course. And I am excited to apply the learnings I’ve had with my new client. I am now drafting a package proposal that includes WordPress Web Design development.
The whole course experience was fun! Hindi siya dreadful aralin honestly. Nung una kinakabahan ako kasi I only encountered layouting blogsites using templates pero nung nag-take ako nung course, the web design process is entirely different! Na-enjoy ko yung coaching sessions, the learning process itself. Thankful ako kay Coach Michelle kasi she’s really patient sa mga query at pag-che-check ng portfolios, hindi lang sa ‘kin pero pati na rin sa batchmates ko. She always encourage us and push us to do our best and also to take opportunities once na andiyan na. She was understanding also during the course, naalala ko it took me almost two weeks para matapos yung pag-de-design ng portfolio website pati na rin nung online shop pero si Coach matiyagang nag-follow up. Mas naka-drive na ma-complete ang course and aim for Gold Certificate. PS:
Nung inupdate ko yung Upwork account ko with a different Title(I updated my profile with “Web Designer/*insert current work*” as my title) + added my portofolios from the course, na-approve na rin sa wakas yung account ko(finally, after 10 months!), 😊 New step in my road to freelancing, yes!

- I learned a ton on this course. From zero knowledge in creating a website to having my website is a milestone.Thank you for being a great coach, your patience on me is amazing.Thank you for sharing your passion with the people around you, especially to your students.
It was really an amazing experience learning a lot in a short period of time. I usually deal with new software/platform in my job as a Systems Engineer but learning them alone, asking google, reading reference books, online forums and etc is not easy. But this time the learning curve was very smooth though web development is really a different world for me but I managed to met the timelines because of your very effective coaching and support. To be honest, this is my first time to engage in paid online learning and at first I really thought that it is not going to be so effective, but I was wrong. I’m planning to take more courses with FVA so I can prepare my self to go back home and spend all my time with my family while earning. That’s actually the goal here, working abroad away from your family is really difficult. Thanks a lot coach
Learning through lessons are easy, even for those who have no I.T. knowledge. Just following your instructions you can make it. At first i thought i cant make it because #1 i have to buy a domain and webhosting, but its worth the expense because i learned a lot from you. Hopefully i can find a client soon, and be a spiderwoman 🙂 Thanks coach
The lessons are very technical, as in kapag wala kang alam sa website design at wordpress, mawawala ka talaga. pero the lessons itself ay design talaga para sa mga katulad ko na zero knowledge sa wordpress and yet the lessons are clear. ung mga terms and how to do it ay nandun sa mga lessons. masusundan mo sya, and step by step talaga..
Your coaching sessions were all approachable in terms of understanding WordPress.com and WordPress.org. It was fun to manage an design websites including Elementor. Most clients that I apply for are looking experienced WordPress Web Designer. Now, I am equipped with the samples and my detailed portfolios to them. In the end, I am excited to get clients for web design after I optimized all my profiles.

Thank you so much for coaching us. It was a nice experience taking this course. I learned a lot from your coaching. This will definitely level up my skill set. God Bless.
I am so amazed how I was able to build my own website and learn new skills in a span of 1 month. The videos and lesson notes are very informative and the whole coaching process is effective. It is designed for beginners like me but you’ll end up like an expert. Thank you to FVA family and to our very supportive coach, Michelle Macaraig for this wonderful experience. More power and God bless.
The whole coaching session was informative and straight forward. It was my first time to do it from scratch, like choosing the domain and webhosting. I have understood better how the whole thing works from step1 until I was able to build a website. As long as you just follow through with the videos, anybody will not get lost. If they are, there is always a coach who can help. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity.
Thank you coach for the support all the way through the end. I am looking forward to enhance more of the skills I learned from you!
The FVA Web Design Course instantly made me into a Web Designer! Coach Michelle Macaraig explains the training topics in ways that beginners will really learn. I, myself never thought that I could learn web designing using WordPress. After finishing the course, I can proudly say that I can design website now. In the span of my training sessions, Coach Michelle is very quick to answers all my questions. That’s a double thumbs up. 👍👍
It’s life changing. You were very responsive to my questions and always ready to offer help regards with my portfolios. Thanks coach. 🙂
Coach Michelle, thank you for teaching us properly all about Web Designing. As a student, I really liked that we have 24/7 support from our coach and they are actually extending their help for beginners like us. This is not a feedback but this is actually a thank you message for the FVA Family and coaches, especially Coach Michelle. I am confident that with the things I learned here and the continued support of my coach, I know I can offer a top-notch service for my future clients. Thank you!
