About Keren

My name is Keren and I am Columbia College graduate. I have a bachelor's degree in French and Speech Language Pathology. Currently, I am a French and ESL teacher with Shelby County Schools. From working with ESL students, I have seen the great need for a strong literacy foundation for all students. I am also working towards a Master's of Arts in Education in Reading and my Reading Specialist certification. I have a myriad of educational field experience.

I have taught biology and French in Atlanta, GA with the Breakthrough Atlanta program. I have served as a literacy coach with Tutor Eau Claire in Columbia, SC. I was a kindergarten teacher, where I not only adhered to state standards, but I routinely incorporated the French language into daily activities. With my SLP background as well, I am able to pin point and rectify literacy/reading problems that students may demonstrate. During my undergrad years at Columbia College, I served as a part time math tutor to a middle and high school student. From since, I have tutored all areas of math including high school geometry, pre-algebra, and algebras 1 & 2.

I also have studied abroad and taught English as a Foreign Language in Angers, France, where I was able to perfect and build upon my French language speaking skills.

I have several different talents within the field of education. I love working with students. My ultimate goal is to travel and to teach while applying my diverse background.

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.

Algebra 1

I have taught and tutored middle school Algebra for years. For subjects such as a math, I prefer to use a hands on method to help make learning fun, meaningful, and real. Before beginning a math lesson, assessments are performed to determine exactly where the student is having problems. This is also beneficial because the student's progress can be easily tracked thereafter.

Elementary (K-6th)

I taught English at two different Elementary schools in Angers, France (grades pre-k through 5th grade equivalent) and in the past I have worked at a local private elementary school in Columbia, SC as a kindergarten teacher. I have special training in the DIBELS, a literacy program for helping students to acquire reading skills. I have worked individually with students through tutoring in the after-school program and also I have organized hands-on activities, field trips, and community service projects. Currently I am enrolled with Ashford University for a MAED specializing in English Language Learners.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught in Angers, France as an English teacher. I taught English at two different elementary schools (Paul Valery and Alfred de Musset) in the academie of Nantes. I held nine classes ranging from pre-K to 5th grade equivalent.

I also created authentic documents that could be reproduced for French teachers to use in the classroom if they were without an English teacher at their school. I also taught a civilization class focusing on the culture and history of America and other English speaking countries.

I am currently "highly qualified" and certified to teach English as a Second Language at both elementary and secondary levels. This will be my 2nd year teaching 2nd grade ESL with Memphis City Schools.

I am also finishing a MAED at Ashford University specializing in English Language Learners.

French

I have studied French over 15 years. I have a BA in French and am "highly qualified" to teach French at both elementary and secondary levels.

I have lived and studied abroad for about 2 years. I have also taught abroad at two different Elementary schools (Paul Valery and Alfred de Musset) in Angers, France. I can speak the language fluently. I have also taught French in Memphis, Atlanta, and Columbia, SC.

My husband is also French and we travel back to France often.

Phonics

I am currently certified to teach English as a Second Language. I have a background in Speech Language Pathology. With extensive experience in both fields, I have studied and worked with students in building phonemic awareness and literacy skills. Fun activities to promote a strong foundation in phonics include word sorts, sound boxes (with word parts, onset and rime), interactive writing, interactive reading, echo reading, etc. To track progress and assess growth, the Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA) and the San Diego Quick Assessment is used.

Reading

I am currently certified to teach English as a Second Language and Elementary grade curriculum. I also have a background in Speech Language Pathology. With extensive experience in both fields, I have studied and worked with students in building phonemic awareness and literacy skills. I have also worked closely with Tutor Eau Claire in Columbia, SC, where I served as a reading tutor for disadvantaged elementary schools. Fun activities to promote a strong foundation in phonics include word sorts, sound boxes (with word parts, onset and rime), interactive writing, interactive reading, echo reading, etc. To track progress and assess growth, the Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA) and the San Diego Quick Assessment is used.
