Thanks for all the tips and tricks and cool skills! You accomplished so much in that short time. I wish you were my one-on-one trainer--that was such fun!! 

-Lydia H.

The training (InDesign) was great. I love Chana, she is amazing. I was able to get a lot of information and learned a ton from her in the period of time we had. I am very interested in the photoshop and illustrator because it seems they all work together and what we are trying to achieve will require those programs.

-Amber B.

The training (Indesign) with Rick went great! Learned a lot in just three hours (1-on-1).

I had a private class with Warren from headTrix on Adobe Premier, and he was really amazing.
Warren is a professional, working editor and he knew exactly the answer to all my questions.
He even offered insights on the video I was currently working on.

 He was nice, friendly and professional ... I will definitely take another class with him and headTrix. THANKS GUYS!

Thanks Mark. Yes, we are both so grateful to have had such a good teacher.
It has really added lots of value.

-Liana Y.

Center Cal Properties, LLC


I have taken several classes with headTrix in the past year and plan on taking some more. They are really great at what they do- they're patient and very knowledgeable. I have taken both private classes at my home office and group classes in Santa Monica. Both offer different experiences - but both are as informative. They keep their group classes very small so you still get the proper attention from thier knowledgeable Instructors. They have a good syllabus in place and answer all types of questions you may have (patiently). The private classes are ideal for me because I'm busy and I want a more personalized type of training where I can skip several tricks I already aknow and jump ahead to tools that are useful to my work/industry. Both Mark and Nate are attentive, knowledgeable, nice, friendly, and patient. I have taken many different classes in LA and they're the best so far because they make the 6 hour class go by fast with their fun projects, efficient workflow, and teaching techniques.

-Edwin S.

Cal Poly Pomona


It was wonderful! Mark was so knowledgeable and amenable to my needs & hopes for the session! I will definitely use the $100 and sign up for a new training soon.
I want to learn video editing software!!!!

-Megan O.


The class went really well and I felt we accomplished a lot in one day.
Nathan was very professional and we covered the most important parts of Premiere that I wanted to learn.

-Maite B.

The first day of training (Illustrator) went extremely well!
Rick is a great instructor and is very helpful with the learning process. 

Hopefully Lisanne and I will get the opportunity to work with InDesign in the future as well.

Training(Premiere) was awesome. So happy I did it, thank you so much!

All the best and thank you for your help organizing!

-June B.

I really loved the Premiere Training, it was awesome!
Warren was great and I am so glad I trained 1-on-1 (as an experienced Editor) it was a way better choice for me. I was able to edit right away! it really helped to tailor the lesson to my needs.

Warren's the shizzle.  Warren's class gave me the jump start I needed into After Effects.

-Beth D.
Director, Editor, Writer
Film Entity, LLC


The class(Social Media Level 1) was fantastic. Steve is a wonderful instructor. The class was a good balance of humor and in depth instruction.
I loved it and can't wait to take level 2!

- , Helias


This class(Social Media Marketing) was amazing, informative and entertaining. Not only did the class provide all the insights in the how-to's of social media, Steven also approached it from a business consulting angle. Steven provides ideas regarding content, sourcing of content, possible marketing activities, the difference in purpose of all platforms and tailored the information towards the industry we are in. The outline of short-term and long-term goals with activities linked to measurable results allows us to operate with a level of accountability that we would never have had if we would not have worked with Steven.
I highly recommend the class to anybody who wants to get the most out of social media both on a personal and professional level.

- , Helias


Warren did a great job (Premiere Training). He was patient and thorough and quickly got to the heart of what I needed. I will likely need a booster course in a while.

-Jeff K.
Floating World Pictures


Thanks, the class (After Effects) was excellent. I learned a lot.

-Trevor S.


I took a class on After Effects and was so pleased with the instructor Steve, he was awesome! I will defiantly be taking the advanced training.

-Jordis M.


headTrix is the only place to go for training!  I am an experienced trainer myself and I am difficult to please so this is high praise! Mark is patient and intuitive to his student's needs. He ensured that I understood the software(Captivate) and the steps needed to create a professional product. His eye for detail and creative expertise are essential for my needs and he was able to impart this information to me effortlessly.  I highly recommend Headtrix and Mark as an instructor.

- , HTS


Mark and headTrix Training moved me up the learning curve. I learned(SEO) in 4 hours what would have taken me months if not a year to learn on my own. When you are launching an eCommerce platform that can be the difference between success and failure. It's a worthwhile investment in education and gives you skills that are so valuable. I will be back for more courses in different areas soon! A+

- , Zero Gravity Tables


The training was great. I have been really busy with my new job since the training and have used After Effects extensively. Warren is a great trainer. I can't believe how much information he covered is three days.

- Helen C.


Hi Mark,

The After Effects training went very well. Steve was very knowledgeable and helpful.
I hope to use the coupon in the next few months.

Thank you

Thank you so much for sending Warren (Illustrator). He was truly fantastic. I was wondering how much it would be to upgrade my photoshop 2 training to a private one day training with warren.  Thanks!

Alison S.
Marketing & Admissions Director
YULA Girls High School


I took an amazing Social Media 101 course at headTrix located in the heart of Santa Monica on Main street. The course was everything I wanted and more! 

I learned the how to utilize social media for my business on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube platforms. Because of this course, my business doubled in sales. The course was small so that each student could really excel. I was able to ask the teacher individualized questions and he was able to answer them thoroughly - it felt like a private training session! I recommend this social media course for all of you who want to take your business to the next level.

Ilana L.


Everything was great! I thoroughly enjoyed my 1 on 1 session.
Mr. Bowe you're a great teacher!

Hey Mark, I just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you I am really enjoying the Live Online training (Captivate) and learning a lot. I really appreciate your passion about teaching us and your willingness to spend extra time. I really enjoyed the class and your teaching style.  It would be great when we migrate to the next version, we can again call on you to share your knowledge.

Laurie W.

Hi Mark,
Thanks again for the great Live Online training (Captivate)!
I could never imagine I would learn so much in such a short time frame :)

Els N.
Expert Documentation & Training Developer


Training was good. I think I gleaned enough to get started and am excited to
start working with InDesign. The instructor was good and thorough ...I am glad you offered the Live Online Training option and I didn’t have to travel. Thanks!

Shari J.


My headTrix training really was excellent.
David was obviously expert with Framemaker, as well
as InDesign (which is what we currently use). It was helpful that he
was so familiar with both programs because he seemed to understand my
mindset. He was also very accommodating in addressing some of my specific
concerns with regard to our Company's publications, but
without deviating significantly from our itinerary.

My concerns about live online training were alleviated after just a few hours. I
realized that watching and listening to a seasoned-user was as valuable as a
classroom experience.

L. Allen

I loved the class. Learned a ton. Thanks so much. (After Effects)

Kathleen M.

Thanks for the training...
it was intense but very informative and with great hands on training.

I plan to stay in contact with you.  You really know Photoshop. Thanks

Kevin S.


Excellent place to take Adobe training.  I have taken several classes and all the instructors have been wonderful.  Highly recommend this company for classes on Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign etc.

Crislyn M.


Took Photoshop and Dreamweaver courses.  Had previously tried to learn Photoshop on my own but became very frustrated with it.  I signed up for the Photoshop course and the owner/instructor (Mark) did a great job of teaching me how to use the software.  While I am still far from being an expert, the skills I learned in the class have allowed me to do things at work which I previously would have had to hire someone else to do.  I enjoyed the class so much that I also took Dreamweaver as an introduction to designing websites which is something that also is of interest to me but never thought I could do on my own.  Both classes are highly recommended for those who are interested in photo editing and web design.

Tim I.

Mark is brilliant and has wonderful ideas. He is also full of enthusiasm about his students' projects. As well as the classes, I have done one-on-one training with him and he has been very helpful with my website development. Highly recommend the Photoshop course.

Thanks, Mark. The class was great. You're a great teacher. So maybe I should've gone to Dreamweaver 1  but I got so much out of this class too. No regrets at all. I've learned so much. I'll see you again for sure! Thanks again!

Eva L.


I just wanted to convey my thanks for the training session that I had 
with Sally Cox last Thursday. It went very well. She's an experienced 
Connect user and a very good trainer. We covered all the material at my 
pace and I learned a tremendous amount. Sally is a real professional. If 
I needed other training, I will not hesitate to study with her and headTrix. Thanks,

George C.


yeah it's a thankless world so when someone does a good job it's a good idea to let them know. Your a great teacher Mark and you did a great job of deciding our pace and moving us all through all that stuff rather than having us experts in just a small part of it.

I just wanted to thank you for an excellent training Monday and Tuesday.  I can’t tell you what a breath of fresh air you were with your style and expertise.  You were able to make it very understandable and I walked away knowing that I could recreate what you taught us with my own material.  That is something we were not able to do with the previous instructor.  Thank you very much and I hope we are able to take more classes with you.

M. Crowell

I was just reflecting on the class that i took recently with Mark. The class was Beginners ActionScript 3.0. I didn't really know how it was possible to learn that much of this programming language in 3 days. The great thing about this particular class and this particular teacher, is that he didn't bang through all of the material, just for the sake of covering everything- He taught us how to learn this stuff.. Mark has an amazing knack for making something that sounds so confusing in a book, make sense. Now, a couple months after the class, as i go through my ActionScript 3.0 books- i actually understand WHY i am entering the code that i'm entering.. In simple terms- Mark is a great teacher who can teach you HOW to learn this stuff! i'm very glad i had the opportunity to learn from him.
Thank you!

It is a lot for me to take in, but at least now I have an understanding of the program and how it works.

Thanks again.
-Beth Roeser

The instructor was very personable, easy to talk to, thus easy to ask questions.
I liked the fact that we didn't stick to the Macromedia book because we were able to learn how things worked independent and then refer to the book for a second example if needed.

Mark, Thanks again for a great class. Learned a lot. Glad you did the code (although I wasn't sure at first).

Mark, I think I can say that on behalf of everyone in the class, thank you,
and that this was a wonderful class, thank you for coming here to Houston,
it was a pleasure to get to know you and learn so much this week...I am just glad that I could keep up...
I hope that you had a good trip back and made your plane ontime.

Mark, thank you for being so patient with me during the three day
Dreamweaver course. It was immensely beneficial and I felt you were
extremely thorough and clear considering all the material you covered
in such little time.

I signed up for the Flash course for September 25, 26 so perhaps
we'll touch base again.

Again thank you!

Thanks again for a great class this week,
You are an excellent instructor, too bad this week the classes went by too fast!
I'd really love to take your course in Flash

I just want to let you know that the Dreamweaver training I had this week was great!
Mark Itskowitch was great and I wish the other instructors would have his method of teaching. About a month ago I had Flash training and the instructor went straight from the book, paragraph by paragraph, and I did not learn quite as much as I would've, if he taught utilizing Mark's method. Mark went by the book, but added explanations to what the book had., in class the instructor explanations are much needed and are extremely helpful and the book is used as an added resource.

Truth be told, after the Flash class I was looking for another place to take the Dreamweaver course, but the
City had already paid for it and it was going to be too much trouble to change, but after being in Mark's class, I am glad I didn't change it. I would very much like to re-take the Flash course if Mark would be the one teaching it. Is there any possibility he can teach the course within the next weeks or months?

Thank you for your attention to this matter,
Elvia Hernandez
Graphic Designer
City of Los Angeles


Thanks Mark, My presentation went great. I referenced you several times and cited your expertise and care in your clients. You were a huge help and I really appreciate everything you did to help me through the process.

So, after the class Matese came up to me and asked me how the class went.

She then asked if I would be interested in helping to update the website.
I said sure, I would love to practice my new skills.

Hey man,

  I got great news this week.  I imagine that the reason I got "Best of Quarter"
for "Fundamentals of Authoring" was largely in part to your recommendation.
I can't thank you enough... even if you didn't recommend me.
This new Flash class, game prototyping, it's all actionscript, and
the stuff you taught, and in the fashion you taught it was top notch.
Everyone jacks up in that class... except Edward, His programmer pal.... John is it?
and yours truly (from sitting in your class)
Again, can't say thanks enough times to express my gratitude.

And I'm trying to finalize the slot machine... I'll keep you posted.

Greetings Mark, My name is Madison Fuentes. I recently attended the Web Graphic
Optimization course you taught with Jon Cohen. Completing that course
earned me a certificate in Web Graphic Optimization.
I did not plan on taking anymore courses with UCSD Extension,
but attending class with you has helped renew my interest
in pursuing another certificate - Flash Animation for the Web. Are you planning on teaching Flash III in 2003?
If not, can you please recommend a good instructor to take?
I would prefer to take another course with you since I know
I will not be disappointed. Thanks,

You know, I hope, that the four of us are taking your class purely for the love of learning :-) - no credit or grades.
I want to let you know that I am so-o-o thankful to you for sharing your knowledge.
You are truly one of the best teachers I've ever had.

I will definitely be there next Thursday (likely no site in hand) but, hopefully,
the lay-out of one I plan to work on and carry through to the DAC program.

Have a good weekend

Thank you again for your beautiful work. It’s received high praise, and I’m so happy to have a product with top notch graphics. FYI, I gave you a plug in the national networking group Women in Music. I didn’t list specific rates—just that you do stellar work, are affordable and a nice guy to boot. Hopefully it will bring you some good business!

HOT. HOT. HOT.  Awesome job.  Looks great.  I will talk to you soon. 
Get some sleep.

EVERYONE LOVES IT! -D "Once again,  it was kickin'.  OK, now next steps if you are up for it.
I want to make some alterations (plenty of time) and pay you more to do that. Call when you have a chance. Once again, we would have been much less impressive without your fine work. Talk to you soon. -D

Mark, I really have to compliment you on the design you came up with.
I think it's very creative and that they'll like it a lot.  It more than achieves what our proposal needs to accomplish for that portion of our pitch.”
You did an exceptional job on this, Mark. I’m confident we’ll get the
next one we have a shot at and I look forward to working with you.

Hi, Mark,

It went fantastically well! There was a huge crowd, and everyone seemed
to have a really good time. They loved the flash presentation! When it
was over I saw a few misty eyes in the crowd.

Thanks for doing such a great job.
