Learning & Recs

Although I do have a formal college education, I do a lot of studying in my free time, so I figure it’s important to note that here!

All of that knowledge hopefully leads to happy clients.

So further down the page, I have a list of folks who were kind enough to say some nice words after our work together concluded.

We’ve been working with Alex for over a year and have had a great experience working with him. In addition to being a talented editor, he is communicative, reliable, and works quickly. Highly recommend!

During my initial encounters with Mr. Mitts, his initiative became evident. Mr. Mitts displays great confidence and intelligence, asking numerous insightful and probing questions in order to find out what I am trying to do and accomplish. To this end, he helped me put together a valid and responsive Canvas program to meet the needs of our students. Having worked and interacted with Mr. Mitts for the past two plus years, I am truly impressed with his knowledge, efforts and skills.

I want to THANK YOU for hiring a wonderful colleague, Mr. Mitts – He has been an extraordinary source of support for me, my students and colleagues! Due to COVID- 19 He is creative in offering timely services, regardless the variation of my requests from a poll setting in zoom to video editing in Canvas. His workshops are always informative and helpful.

Alex crafted a memorable and impactful presentation for Central Ohio ATD about being tenacious in your instructional design job hunt. He blended his sense of humor, visual design, and storytelling into a session that I think is “must see” for anyone who is transitioning into their first instructional design role. I have also seen Alex’s work as an instructional designer and voice-over artist, and he’s a dual creative threat that can attack any learning and development project.
