Dear parents,

Do you feel that your child is not getting the full support they need to achieve their potential at school?

Does your child “hate to read and write” or perform poorly on standardized exams?

I am dedicated to helping your child reach his or her potential in reading, writing, and social/emotional development. I will help your child perform according to the standards they need to succeed at school, while also supporting him/her in developing intrinsic motivation, confidence and a full sense of self. 


Dear parents,

Does your child need introductory or advanced support in developing skills in English or Spanish as a second language?

I have 6 years of ESL and Elementary teaching experience in the U.S. and abroad. I speak Spanish and Chinese with conversational fluency.

Childcare Testimonials:

“We’re pleased to recommend Merritt without reservation. She looked after our 4-year-old son once or twice a week for several weeks this spring (2018). 
She was punctual and conscientious and brought unexpected skills and interests to the job, helping Hobey with arts & crafts projects and storybooks that he would “write” and illustrate. Sometimes we would come home to find a display assembled from wildflowers and treasures they found during their walks. Hobey enjoyed his time with Merritt and we were fortunate to have her.”
