If you are using WordPress then feel free to use plugins for SEO. Just make sure you set up the plugin correctly and fully.
For meta titles, focus on keywords not site name. Your site will always rank well for its name because it sits on a domain that includes your name.
Keywords are part of your meta tags. The SEO plugin will have a place to enter your keywords.
