Mr. Merrill tutored our daughter, Isabelle, as a Sophomore and Junior at Taft. He gave her a great deal of help with English, especially writing. He helped her write better structured and more focused essays and helped her prepare for the SAT exams. Isabelle credits Mr. Merrill with helping her develop into a focused reader and an excellent writer. The skills she learned from Mr. Merrill’s tutoring have helped her significantly in her first year as a college student. Mr. Merrill was also a caring academic advisor to Isabelle.
