Awesome!!!

Very helpful in the way that he goes into depth with each problem. He also gave me extra problems to work on which was helpful and he showed me new ways to solve problems.

The Best Physics Tutor on Wyzant

This semester I took Physics 202. I had lessons with 9 other physics tutors and Martin was by far the best. He had diagrams, equations, and visual aids on hand to help me understand the lesson topics. Martin was able to help me with a variety of topics including magnetic fields (Biot-Savart Law and Ampere's Law), magnetic forces, electromagnetic induction (Faraday's Law, inductors, magnetic flux), AC circuits, wave optics, ray optics, and optical instruments. He is by far one of the most knowledgeable tutors I have ever had. Without Martin’s help, I would not have been able to pull off an A for the semester.

My daughter is FINALLY starting to understand Calculus

We've had two lessons with Martin so far, but my daughter can't say enough good things about him and his teaching style. Quick backstory - she is a junior in high school, currently. When she was entering her freshman year she tested into Algebra II. What we didn't realize was that she didn't really "get it," although her test scores showed differently. Sophomore year she had Trigonometry and Pre-Calculus. She passed both classes with average grades. We didn't worry too much as she didn't say that she had been struggling, just that the classes were "harder" than she thought they'd be. Then came Junior year and it all went south. She ended up failing her first semester of Calculus and then told us that she had been struggling with all concepts - even going back to Algebra. Now, she's currently failing her second semester while trying to make up her first semester's grade. Fortunately, in just two lessons with Martin, the lightbulb in her head has switched on and she's actually understanding things much better. If I could swing it, I'd have her seeing him more than once a week. I'm so glad we found someone that is helping my daughter. I was finding it hard to find a tutor that could help, especially given the current situation with the pandemic. We couldn't find anyone local, there were so many different online sites to choose from, we didn't know anyone else that had gone through tutoring, so finding a good fit with Martin has been a blessing. She needed someone to rewind and review the basics with her before jumping into the Calculus concepts. So thankful for the help she's getting!

Very helpful and explains well

Martin taught me physics patiently with practice problems and is knowledgeable about all the things that are and aren't taught or tested in school. Although school has been online, Martin has really helped when I haven't been able to get much help from school.

Great AP Physics tutor

Martin explained physics concepts well. He provided good problems to explain the concepts as well as good practice problems to help with test preparation. I highly recommend Martin.

The good and flexible SATMath tutor

Our daughter reviewed her SAT math with Martin. She is a good student but since in this pandemic she will only have one chance to take the SAT, she felt she needed help to make it as good as possible. Martin worked with her school + varsity sports schedule which was so kind of him. Like a seasoned teacher, Martin quickly diagnosed her weaker points and energetically started repairing them. After only three sessions her SAT math scores were almost perfect. Thank you ! We will come back for Physics:)

Awesome experience

Super patient and easy to work with! Makes things easy to understand so that I can work through the problems! Took the time to figure out how I leaned best as well as developed a plan to get to my ultimate goal that I am trying to reach! Definitely recommend!!!

Heather, 6 lessons with Martin

Patient and extremely competent

always listens, and offers suggestions for material to work on, even when high school instructor offers no guidance on what to work on. wish he were my daughters high school teacher!

Anne, 22 lessons with Martin

A Miracle Worker

My daughter described Martin as "a miracle worker." She was incredibly worried about problems that she did not understand on an upcoming physics honors test and felt completely confident after working with Martin. Cannot thank him enough!! Will work with him again in the future. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! He was incredibly patient and she enjoyed his friendly, light-hearted approach. Amazing tutor!!!
