I have two children and one grandchild. Before teaching, I served in the U.S. Navy for twenty years. I spent nearly 8 of those years stationed in Japan. In December of 2017, I began teaching English online to...

I am a retired teacher with twenty years of classroom experience. I have taught in a public school as a Special Education Specialist for 15 years. Most of those years were in the subjects of English and Mathematics. I also have 5 years experience as a Common Core sixth grade teacher.

I have two children and one grandchild. Before teaching, I served in the U.S. Navy for twenty years. I spent nearly 8 of those years stationed in Japan. In December of 2017, I began teaching English online to children in China. I have a TOEFL certificate for ESL classes as well.

Math was my favorite subject when I attended school, I started helping other students when I was in the ninth grade. I am well versed in multiple ways to help students grasp math concepts. I love seeing them experience ’Aha’ moments.

I eagerly look forward to helping you to achieve your goals. Thank you for letting me help you.

Very kind and patient.

I watched my usually fidgety and child with poor attention span in most areas sit attentively with Mr. Merlin. My son even asked if can he have a second session each week. Mr Merlin is great!

Merlin helps make learning fun and easier!

My son is a high functioning autistic. Merlin capture's his attention by teaching a little then asking questions about what he just taught. He is super positive, patient and kind. He is teaching math with lot's of examples found in every day living like using the pizza pie to show fractions, percentages, circumference and radius. He is catching my son up to his grade level. He brings me great relief. Now I can concentrate on teaching my son his five other classes.

Fantastic Tutor Who Really Connects

Merlin is a fantastic tutor. We are homeschooling and he has connected with my son who is behind in English. I've seen drastic improvement after only 4 months. Highly recommend him! While we've only been working with him in English, I'm sure he's just as knowledgeable in other subjects and I will probably utilize his knowledge in others soon. I wish I had brought him in sooner!
