My career spans a varied range as a writer/producer/director of film, television, video, multimedia, theater, pay-per-call shows, websites and Italian-American cultural events; as a film teacher and curriculum designer; as a book author and magazine editor/writer; as a radio talk-show host; and as an ethnic/political organizer and fundraiser. I have always focused my creativity on new telecommunication technologies to create and produce original entertainment and education programs. My goal now is to continue fulfilling my true loves in life – writing, teaching and creative inspiring!
I have never actually tutored any students but I am sure that I can. I have a very unusual style of teaching and I think this style would work with whatever students I have.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Theatre

I have produced several theatrical productions in my life and I love live theater. The plays got a lot of rave reviews and were all extended in their runs. I have also produced over 65 documentary films which were shown on broadcast television years ago. I have also written or produced four books, two on the movie business (one on "A Hard Day's Night With Beatles" and on called "The Movie World of Roger Corman." I did two books on my Italian American background -- one called "The Italian American Experience" and the other called "The Italians of North America" for Senator Moynihan. My experience is very varied in many fields and I think my resume is truly unique in that regard.

Video Production

I have produced over 65 documentary films and about ten television productions for broadcast television with Italian America children. I have also taught Film Production and Cinema Studies at New York University, The Harvard School for Boys, Art Center College of Design and I created and designed the Film Extension Division of UCLA's Continuing Education Program. I have also taught and seceral other colleges in New York City and Los Angeles. The only differnce between Film Production and Video Production is that the technology is different between the means of production. Otherwise they are same, especially when it comes to content creation and production.
