Hobby Topics

What is a Hobby Topic?

Throughout our time as students, we have picked up a number of tips, tricks, and “know-how” skills that come in handy in both academics and life, but that are not always taught directly in the classroom. The topics we list below may be a little too specific to our own interests to be called “life skills” (though we certainly think they are!), but they encompass various software programs, activities, and tricks-of-the-trade that we have found useful in our time as students. If you or your student is looking for guidance in any of these areas, don’t hesitate to reach out!

          Basics of HTML, CSS, and Web Design

          In the digital world, a polished, functioning website is essential for any business, artist, or professional looking to present a portfolio to the world.  For this very reason, many school projects now incorporate web design as a creative and presentational tool.

          In search of a distraction during the pandemic, Joel took to teaching himself the basics of HTML and CSS, the structure and styling languages of the web, and how to use these languages to better navigate and customize common web template services such as Squarespace and Webflow.  One of the fruits of this labor is the website you’re browsing right now!  Interested in creating an online portfolio site or need some tips on a school project?  Fill out the contact form below!

              Video Editing/Production

              Whether you are an aspiring filmmaker or just trying to finish a project for class, video editing is a skill that comes in handy time and time again.  Furthermore, because the world runs on media these days, employers often see video editing experience as a plus on any resume, particularly in the areas of marketing, social media, and communications.

              Joel has a range of experience in both creative and practical video editing using platforms such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut, Davinci Resolve, Sony Vegas, iMovie, and more.  Looking for some help on your next video editing project or just want to learn more?

                  Sound Editing and Recording

                  With the advent of easy-to-use, affordable home recording equipment, audio production is steadily becoming a more central feature of both academic and professional life.  Music, podcasts, and radio plays are all being produced more frequently at the amateur level than ever before.

                  As an amateur musician/music enthusiast himself, Joel has experience with most mainstream “digital audio workstations” and equipment for recording, editing, and producing sound.  Need some help on your next audio project or just want to learn more?  Fill out the contact form below!

                      Audition Review/Coaching for Young Actors

                      Auditioning is the most daunting (and most essential) skill that actors have to master.  If you’re a young actor in particular, chances are that the audition process can seem a little mysterious: What are directors looking for?  How should I prepare?  What can I do to improve my chances of being cast?

                      Joel has been acting both professionally and in school/children’s theatre, film, and television productions since he was 10 years old and has seen the ups and downs of auditioning first hand.  If you are or you know a young actor looking for some guidance on your next big audition, fill out the contact form below!

                          Basics of LaTex

                          As formatting languages go, LaTex is the industry standard for scientific writing.  If you’ve ever read a scientific paper in its original formatting, there is a strong chance that paper was written in LaTex.  Scientists and Researchers prefer LaTex because, once you know how to use it, the language makes it easy to incorporate text, figures, and mathematical symbols/equations without worrying about formatting.

                          That being said, learning how to use LaTex can be a steep learning curve, especially if you’re not used to writing in coding languages.  Most students don’t encounter LaTex until undergrad, if at all, during their academic careers, but every once in a while it may come up or you may just want to branch out and try something new.  Both Gabe and Joel have experience using LaTex for academic and research purposes, so fill out the contact form below if you’d like some LaTex tips!
