My name is Demaris and I've been tutoring privately for over ten years. I tutor in most subjects but math is my specialty. I've worked with elementary school student up to adults. I love my work. I have a BA in Sociology, and since graduating I have completed six ECE units and I continue to take math classes at Diablo Valley College. I have worked as an Instructor's Assistant at Diablo Valley College. As an Instructor's Assistant I helped in the classroom and also led a weekly study group. I help with test taking strategies and organization in addition to helping with homework. I try to build a good relationship with each student as I feel that is important to a student's success.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I'm qualified to tutor elementary students for several reasons. I have a BA in Sociology, as well as twelve Early Childhood Education units. Additionally, I have been tutoring for over fifteen years and have worked with many students in this age group over the years. I feel that the above qualifies me to tutor elementary students.

Study Skills

I have been tutoring students for over ten years. I help students plan out their work and make a schedule. I help students organize their work so they are not overwhelmed. I have worked with middle school, high school and college students to improve their study skills.
