About Frank

I currently teaches 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, he 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. John’s University, The City College of New York, CUNY, and the University of California, Santa Cruz. He has been the recipient of many university, national, and international awards for his 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 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 film journals -- JOURNAL OF FILM AND VIDEO (5 years) and CINEMA JOURNAL (5 years) -- he is especially familiar with the extensive literature and research on film/media topics, as well as Art History and Theory, Theater, Literature, History, Psychology, and Political Science.

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.

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.

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.

English

I have studied, taught, and written extensively about literature and language for most of my academic career. I also have ten years of experience as Editor-in-Chief of two scholarly journals and more than thirty-five years of experience reading and copyediting college term papers and graduate theses.

Literature

I have studied, taught, and written about various aspects of international literature, with a special emphasis on the adaptation of prose fiction to film. Although I tend to specialize in 19th- and 20th-century novels, I am also well versed in earlier and later periods, as well as poetry, drama, and even nonfiction. Finally, I have been a published practitioner of the latter three literary forms.

Proofreading

I have been Editor-in-Chief of two major academic journals (for a total of ten years); in that role, I was required to COPYEDIT and PROOFREAD every manuscript that was published. More important, I have taught writing-intensive courses that emphasize proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation, at several universities around the U.S. Finally, I am a stickler for correct citations and references; you can be assured that if I review your term paper or thesis, that it will be 100% correct.

Theatre

I have directed numerous theatrical productions, both in New York City (off-Broadway) and in Los Angeles. I also wrote and directed a one-act play that had an extended run off-off-Broadway. In addition, I've studied Theatre History extensively, and chaired a university program in Theatre at Georgia State University.

Writing

I have been Editor-in-Chief of two major academic journals (for a total of ten years); in that role, I was required to COPYEDIT and PROOFREAD every essay that was published. Currently, I am on the editorial board of eleven scholarly publications, and I have also been manuscript reviewer for dozens of university presses and publishers.

More important, I have taught writing-intensive courses that emphasize proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation on research reports and term papers, at several universities around the U.S. One of my specialties in this regard is evaluating film screenplays and TV scripts, as well as other forms of creative writing.

Finally, I am a stickler for correct citations and references; you can be assured that if I review your term paper or thesis, that it will be 100% correct.
