EACCESS Permission Denied, mkdir

I am brand new to this whole thing, and taking a course on how to build WP websites. The course recommended that we download and use Local.

I currently have the latest version of Local (as I just downloaded it), and am running Big Sur 11.4

Every time I try to create a new site, I get this error message:

It then prompts me for my Mac username and password, which I put in, and then takes me back to the blank screen where it tells me I haven’t created any sites yet.

If someone could tell me step by step how to fix this (so I don’t have to switch to learning MAMP lol) I would greatly appreciate it!

I am so lost.
Thank you!
