About Merritt

I have been teaching math for 34 years. The last 19 years has been at Hawthorne High School on El Segundo Blvd. I have taught Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus and Trigonometry. Currently I am also teaching piano there as well as teaching math. I have a teaching credential in Math as well as Music.

I am planing on retiring in June of this year and would like to spend some time tutoring students in Math as well as giving Piano lessons. I enjoy teaching one on one or in small groups the best because I can give more individual attention to my students. I hope I can be of help to you with your studies in Math or in Music.

My experience working with young people for 34 years. I have taught various Math courses at the high school level the last 19 years. I feel I am qualified to teach any of the courses that I have listed.

Please contact me through the WyzAnt program. I am looking forward to helping you out with your studies.

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.
