I took Abram's English research project class when I was doing a summer program at UCD. He's a great teacher, always very helpful, passionate, and you can tell how much he loves to teach. I always looked forward to his class because he knew very well how to create a comfortable and fun learning atmosphere for all international students.

About Martin
My name is Martín Garay MacLean, and I graduated from Ithaca College in Ithaca, NY with a Bachelor's of Science in Physics. I participated in numerous Physics related research throughout my undergraduate career. This research was mainly focused in Astrophysics, like with NASA's SOFIA Telescope. While being an undergraduate student I often tutored my peers in the areas of Math and Physics.

I currently work as a Physicist/Project Manager in the Semiconductor/Aerospace field in the Sacramento area. Knowledge wise I am highly qualified in the Math and Physics areas, and I am very proficient at
explaining highly complex and technical material in terms that someone at any level will be able to understand.

I am very excited at the opportunity to be able to help students in overcoming the hurdles normally encountered in understanding Math and Physics. I am of the belief that learning becomes fun, once we really understand what we are being told to memorize.
