Martin's an absolutely wonderful investment if you're taking organic chemistry and need alternate explanations or help. My professor's explanations of the (very difficult) material are not always very helpful to me, personally, but Martin speaks my language when it comes to explaining tough concepts in Orgo. He's such a nice person, really patient, and very encouraging of what you can do (which I think is important in a tutor/professor of a difficult and intimidating subject in which it's easy to feel discouraged). He takes tough concepts and breaks them down in a way that anyone can understand - leaving jargon and other intimidating and mystifying explanations at the door - which is so refreshing in such a high-level science. He is also incredibly responsive and helpful in providing extra material, as well as tailoring your sessions to your specific needs.
Martin reviewed synthesis problems with me for two hours. I finally understand these questions. He is very patient and understanding.
I was panicking about my Orgo 2 final and Martin was able to meet with me on very short notice. I'm sure that I would have scored at least 20 points lower on my exam had we not met. He clearly knows his stuff and he does a great job of highlighting major points, showing helpful tricks, and identifying potential student pitfalls. It's amazing what was accomplished in 2.5 hours. I should have been tutored by him all semester! At Martin's rate, he is a steal.
Martin D. is the perfect tutor for explaining complicated processes in simpler terms. After lessons with Martin I feel that I have grasped the true meaning and reasoning for a problem rather than just learning "how" to do it.
I understood material explained by him for 2 hours which I couldn't understand for 1 semester. It's bad I didn't find him earlier.
I am taking a Phd Bioorganic course, and Martin was the perfect tutor to help me with the problems that I was having. He is very patient and organized throughout the session, and his studying tips were very useful. I would highly recommend him.
Martin is an excellent organic chemistry tutor. One of the reasons I found the tutoring sessions helpful is because Martin is able to break down difficult information so that the topic is easier to understand. In the beginning of the course, I had trouble drawing resonance structures and identifying Lewis acid and bases. For our first lesson, Martin had notes ready for me and explained the topic clearly. By the end of the session, I was able to solve questions by myself. Martin is also very patient. When I didn’t understand a certain problem, Martin showed me how to approach the problem with a step by step explanation. He would give me similar problems until he saw that I fully understood the topic. Consequently, I would highly recommend Martin.
