JoAnn from Texas, living in Germany!

:wave:t5: Goodbye!, I will be leaving Chatterbug to start a new work position. It was a pleasure to work with my fellow tutors in the forum and teach incredible students. All the best on your language learning/teaching journey!

Hello Everyone!,

My name is JoAnn, and have been an English tutor on Chatterbug since January 2021! :blush:
I am a full-time student at Heidelberg University, pursuing a Master’s in religious studies. Coming from a small town in Texas, I always wanted to learn another language and took the opportunity to pursue my higher education in German. Currently, I speak English (mother tongue), German (C1) and Spanish (still under construction :construction_worker_woman:t5:).

Learning another language is so rewarding! I have tutored English for over three years and love teaching and interacting with people from all over the world. :world_map: When I’m not tutoring I like to read, watch movies and explore the hidden gems in my area (check down below to see my discoveries!) :national_park:

Looking forward to meeting you and can’t wait to help you on your language journey!

Hey @JoAnn

welcome to the team ! I live in Mexico now, but I am from a small town only 30 minutes away from Heidelberg. I studied Ethnology and ‘Deutsch als Fremdsprache’ at Uni Heidelberg. In April or May I’ll be back home. We should meet then :slightly_smiling_face:

Hello everyone!,
My tutoring hours will be significantly reduced as I’m starting a Masters program. It will take some time for me to adjust to the new schedule. :timer_clock:
See you soon! :cowboy_hat_face:
