I currently teach cinema and media history and theory courses at Hunter College, City University of New York, and at Pace University, as well as on-line graduate seminars for National University. Prior to that, I was chair of the film programs at Georgia State University, Southern Methodist University, and Florida State University, and a professor at Sarah Lawrence College, Ithaca College, St. Johns University, The City College of New York, CUNY, and the University of California, Santa Cruz. I've been the recipient of many university, national, and international awards for teaching.

The author of over 100 scholarly articles and essays and almost 200 academic papers, Dr. T has published extensively on the films of Michelangelo Antonioni and Steven Spielberg, among many other film and media-related subjects. His co-edited book was published by Wayne State University Press in 2004. His volume on filmmaker Michelangelo Antonioni is under contract with Lambert Academic Publishing. He has also won many prestigious awards for his scholarship.

In teaching and evaluating college student papers and theses, as well as scholarly books, he tends to be VERY thorough and will correct ALL spelling, grammatical, and punctuation errors. As the past Editor-in-Chief of two academic journals -- JOURNAL OF FILM AND VIDEO (5 years) and CINEMA JOURNAL (5 years) -- he is especially familiar with the extensive literature and research on many topics, including film/media, Art History and Theory, Theater, Literature, History, Psychology, and Political Science.

Art History,

Art History

My undergraduate minor was Art History, and I received grades of "A" or "A+" in every class I took. Beyond that, I have kept up with developments in the art world for decades and have written several reviews and scholarly essays on painting, sculpture, and architecture. Living in New York City allows me to regularly visit important museums and gallery shows, and I take full advantage of those opportunities. My specialties in Art History are: 19th- and 20th-century European painting, sculpture, and architecture, and Renaissance painting; however, I am also well versed in the ancient, medieval, and postmodernist periods. Just as important, I have assisted numerous Wyzant students with their term papers.
Art Theory,

Art Theory

My B.A. major was in Philosophy and my specialty was Philosophical Aesthetics, which has a long history dating back to Aristotle and Plato. My academic minor was Art History and I received grades of "A" or "A+" in all my classes. Nowadays, I keep up with Art Theory by extensive reading of scholarly journals, by regularly visiting New York City's many museums and galleries, and by initiating discussions with colleagues and scholars. Finally, I have lectured on subjects related to Art Theory and Aesthetics, especially as they relate to film and media.

Great tutor

He was very helpful and revised a great part of my essay. It seemed like he really took some time to revise it. When I read my essay, it seemed like the quality improved a lot. It was great!

Knowledgeable and Responsive Tutor

It's not easy to find a professor well-versed in Theatre. With a deep pool of knowledge and drama literacy, Dr. Frank T. was the miracle I needed to receive my degree. He assisted with the overall content, structure, and organization of my ten-page final paper. Combined with his prompt response rapport, I have a new perception of online-tutoring. I highly recommend his services for undergrad and grad students in need of a critical eye. THANK YOU !Dr. Frank T!
