  • Descripción

    I needed a change from the norm after being in the workforce for 7 years in the States. I grew to love the Latin American culture and language, especially after teaching at predominantly Hispanic schools in Houston, TX. I decided to leave my career in education and set out on a backpacking, volunteering, Workaway trek through Central and South America. I like to stay in communities long enough to truly have memorable experiences, engage in opportunities helping others, learn more about local culture, and improve my own Spanish and Portuguese language skills.

    I am a hard worker, easy-going, service-oriented, energetic, and am willing to do whatever is needed - hostel help, bartending, cleaning, promotions, marketing, teaching, tourism, etc. I would also like to have experiences getting my hands dirty - farming, learning about permaculture, and other tasks involving physical labor. I also have a laptop that I travel with as I have been working as a digital nomad teaching English online to Chinese students with a company called VIPKid for the past three years. This job has allowed me to still earn money while working on a flexible schedule of my choosing.

    I can be reached through workaway, my email address at jtarbutton@gmail.com, or my Mexican #: 557 828 5107 or Colombian Whatsapp: +57 310 403 0774
