Hi, I'm Joanne or Jo. I'm passionate about languages and different cultures. I studied German, French and Italian at school in England, then graduated in German at University of London Goldsmiths' College with a BA hons degree.
I completed a TEFL qualification and taught English in a UK summer school and worked as a language assistant in an Austrian business school.
I have been fortunate enough to have made use of my language skills during my career as a Tour Operator, and have recently completed a Masters in Translation at Open University and set up as a freelance tutor and translator.
I live on the west coast of Scotland and have 2 grown up children.
I have tutored German in the UK and EFL whilst living and working in Austria.
I enjoy the challenge of creating a rapport with a student and seeing them learn more effectively with one-to-one teaching.
