    Yes, Kartikeya served as Guru to his father Shiva on the Swamimalai hill. That's how he got the name Swaminatha. Jul 2 '17 at 8:25

Yes Lord Muruga is a Guru of Lord Shiva and to explaians the meaning of OM mantra to him. I'm not sure about whether it is mention in Skanda Purana or not but it is mentioned in Kantha Guru Kavasam. In that there is a line " Siva Guru nadha" which means he Lord Muruga is guru for Lord Shiva.
