Marc’s subjects

Adobe Illustrator

I have expert skills in the integration of Illustrator documents for page layout and web display, exporting in a variety of formats for end-use in Word documents, PDFs, presentations, websites, and print.

Adobe InDesign

I have a decade of experience working with Adobe InDesign--at design studios, audiovisual firms, and major advertising agencies--up to and including the current Creative Cloud version. I train in both advanced functionality of InDesign, and how to integrate and edit external files into pages, particularly those generated by other Adobe applications, but as well, files created in any bitmap or vector image program. I have expert experience in the creation of multiple Master Pages to maintain consistently-positioned layout; in the use of default and customized color palettes for web, PDF and print export; and font usability training to distinguish display styles from body styles to create professional layouts.

Adobe Photoshop

I have more than 20 years experience in Photoshop creation and image manipulation. I have worked for advertising agencies, management consulting firms, interactive agencies, audio-visual companies, nonprofit organizations, fashion houses--the whole gamut. I have expert skills in layering, color correction, compositing, the application of filters, masking, sizing, and resampling for online display of graphics.

Desktop Publishing

I have 25 years experience in desktop publishing, all the way back to PageMaker, Quark Xpress, and through the latest versions of Adobe InDesign. I have worked for advertising agencies, management consulting firms, interactive agencies, audio-visual companies, nonprofit organizations, fashion houses--the whole gamut. I have expert skills in page layout, text flow, indexing, pagination, graphics and word processing doc integration, and web export. I can train in efficient workflow and document management, allowing the student to get up and running quickly.

Dreamweaver

I have been an HTML hand-coder and Dreamweaver user since version 1.0. As the best of all the visual-based site-building applications, I can train students to become comfortable with Dreamweaver's interface and tweak the code to add or correct functionality, which is almost always necessary. I am skilled in CSS3 and HTML5, and will train with compliance in mind. I can also teach setting up PHP files for dynamic pages and redirecting for tablet and mobile-based sites as well as building sites to fit and flow well to small screens of smartphones.

English

I have a degree in the Writing Seminars Department from Johns Hopkins University. I'm a published poet (two books) and writer for book reviews and articles for literary publications, music blogs, and travel magazines. I will give expert training in perfect English grammar to help the student in his or her career and daily written and spoken communication.

GED

I am a graduate of the Writing Seminars of Johns Hopkins University. I am a published poet and writer, having written book reviews, travel articles, and published interviews in respected publications. I have published two books of poetry and am working on a third. For GED preparation, I prefer to focus on reading and writing, rather than mathematics.

General Computer

I have been using and giving consulting for computers, particularly Macintosh computers, since 1987. I have decades of experience setting up local backup storage and connecting computers on small networks. I have expert knowledge of the Mac OS and intermediate knowledge of Windows. I can train the student to be comfortable with hardware and software, as well as OS-specific settings and functions.

Grammar

I am an extremely meticulous copy editor and am versed in American and British English grammar. My spelling is correct, as I have a large vocabulary and can recount the spellings of most all English words from memory. In addition, as a published writer, I can impart compositional techniques so that students may communicate clearly in their own writing.

Graphic Design

I am a Macintosh professional with 25 years' experience in Mac OS systems and office and graphics applications. I have been designing print materials and websites for more than twenty years. From advertisements to online banners and sites, I've created and implemented both simple and advanced products that clearly communicate the message to the viewer. For website design, I can train the student to design and build sites that are easy for the viewer to read and understand, and allow the user to navigate to the information and/or visual elements that convey a rich experience.

HTML

I have been coding websites in HTML since 1995. I use CSS stylesheets and the latest HTML5 markup language to ensure compliance and accessibility for most browsers. While some older markup still works in many browsers, at this juncture we would start with the basics of current HTML and CSS, as browsers are constantly being updated, and in many cases, new markup makes it much easier to embed audio and video into your pages. I will train you how to embed your own media, as well as media resident on other sites such as SoundCloud, YouTube, Facebook and others.

JavaScript

I have intermediate-level skills in Javascript. While I do not write everything from scratch, I can teach the student to grab code and make necessary adjustments in order to add functionality to sites and to integrate with CSS3 and HTML5. I can train in adding animation, layering, expanding, and collapsing DIVs, embedding audio and video, all of which require some knowledge of JavaScript.

Macintosh

I have been a Macintosh user since 1987. I continually engage in troubleshooting Mac OS system issues, applications, documents, hidden system files, hardware issues, peripherals, storage, and backup. I can train students to diagnose their own problems, or can consult to address thorny problems, to possibly avert having the machine taken in for service. I give expert advice to students about secure and efficient backing up of data and the entire contents of internal hard drives, as well as networking, WIFI, network sharing and other Macintosh-specific functionality. As well, I can set up Intel-based Macs to run Windows operating systems seamlessly.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I am able to help create master pages, templates, and have content flow into them. Also, I can help you to embed audio and video into your presentations.

Microsoft Word

I have been using Microsoft Word since the late 1980s, and know nearly all of its functions. I can train you to create everything from simple documents to full outlined and footnoted text. We will create styles, do advanced formatting, embed pictures and tables. I will train you how to move tables from Microsoft Excel over to Word, so that you may more easily work with tables in the former. In addition, you will be able to export your Word document to a PDF, to distribute the final document to others via email, or to embed it as a link in an HTML page if desired.

Proofreading

I am a writer of articles and documents in my professional life, as well as a poet with two published books. I have expert skills in proofreading, and can tutor the student on the proper editing of documents for creative or business purposes. Recipients of papers and documents will judge a person on their correct grammar, and thus this skill is essential. The student must learn to proofread in order to present truly finished work. I will assist the him/her to attain the desired skills.

Reading

I have a degree in the Writing Seminars Department from Johns Hopkins University, with a heavy concentration in American and English literature. I will give expert training in English-language reading to help the student digest complex prose in order to advance his or her career, or to improve performance on standardized tests and other tasks which require accurate reading comprehension.

TOEFL

I am a professional writer who is expert in training students in proper and accurate reading and writing. I can tutor for reading comprehension, correct English grammar, spelling, vocabulary and sentence usage, in order to pass the TOEFL test.

I have a degree in Creative Writing from The Johns Hopkins University, with an emphasis in Humanities. In my career, I have published two books of poetry, and written numerous articles, book reviews and travel pieces for literary publications, as well as travel magazines and websites.

Vocabulary

I have a degree in the Writing Seminars Department from Johns Hopkins University. I have an excellent vocabulary and will train you to be comfortable searching for unknown words and thinking about word roots so that you may more easily use complex words in your writing and speaking where appropriate.

Web Design

I have been designing websites since 1996, using mainly hand coding, but I am also skilled in website-building programs such as Dreamweaver, blog application (WordPress, Blogger). I am an expert in graphics programs used to create images (Photoshop, Illustrator). I have strong knowledge of CSS3, HTML5, intermediate Javascript. I have designed and coded for major online interactive agencies such as iVillage and Circle.com, and currently design and administer the website for MorrowSound, an intermedia soundscape producer. I am strong in web server administration, email and FTP, and can troubleshoot websites for coding errors.

Writing

I am a graduate of the Writing Seminars Department of Johns Hopkins University. I also have published two volumes of poetry, book reviews, interviews, and travel articles. In my profession, I create business proposals for projects in the form of pitches to potential clients.
