Mr. Martelli really does care about his students. He is a very reasonable teacher, and someone who I trust. He has taught me so much, and I've improved over the years. He is passionate about his teachings. Also as long as you hand in your stuff on time and don't plagiarize( HE KNOWS), you'll become his favourite and will always give you good marks. People often got either 50% (those who slacked and never handed stuff in), of 90% or even higher than 100% (those who hands in all their work, cite)

Cool guy who really knows his stuff. Very lenient and is very flexible when it comes to due dates. Since projects are only 3 a term and can be done in ANY way (poster, essay,song,dance, etc), this class can be lots of fun even if you dislike the subject. Easygoing and other than projects, has a very low workload (none like 99% of the time).Test are usually essays. He provides good Uni prep in terms of bibliography's and note taking. If you can take a course with him, DO IT. Worth your time!

I had him for my last year in philosophy and honestly i loved him! He was funny, open minded to opinions, and he had a pretty sassy mouth on him! He is kinda unclear about the assignments but in the end he really accepts pretty much about anything!

Yes he is extremely smart, probably best at talking in circles around people and making them feel dumb. However, his lessons are never really planned, they're just a bunch of rants stringed together, and the workload is over the top, while he often doesn't know exactly how much he's assigned so he k

If you taken History, Philosophy or both, you might be expecting a combination of worksheets, tests and occasional essay. WRONG! ESSAYS FOR EVERY ASSIGNMENT. Mr. Martelli is a great teacher, although the amount of work probably is one of the reasons why you are so stressed out so much of the time. I

I think he takes things too personal, but only when he feels like it. He has the potential to be an amazing teacher, but he takeson way more than he can handle and by the end of the year no one knows what is going on, himself included.
