About S. Demaris

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

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.

Great Tutor

Demaris Was patient with my 8th grade daughter and helped her with things she was unsure about with her algebra final. We will definitely use her often.
