I learned ASL from the Deaf Community over 35 years ago so, I understand the cultural aspects of the language in addition to its linguistics. I received my AAS through an interpreter training program in 2010. Since 1998, I have been both an Educational and a Medical Interpreter through various agencies in my area. I am state certified and hold EIPA (Educational Interpreter Performance Assessment) credentials as well.

I’m the only Deaf person in my family. I love photography, drawing sketch, and I love teaching American Sign Language (ASL).

I have experience teaching at American Sign Language (ASL) Camp at Mill Neck Manor School for the Deaf. I taught students from a range of grades, typically students from Elementary to Junior High. I constantly look for ways to give back to the Deaf community, such as mentoring and giving the advice to serve them best.

I use various tools such as flashcards that contain words, pictures, and vocabulary in order to build language skills. I will use educational videos that explain topics such as Deaf Culture. I will also use storytelling videos ana will adapt to a range of ages. I will provide American Sign Language (ASL) levels to match each age group.

I will have books for your first trial lesson and come and see for yourself! If you have any additional questions, feel free to contact me.

I look forward to meeting you!

I have a BA in services to the Deaf with a minor in Interpreting. I currently teach ASL for the local technology center. In my classes I teach not only the signs but also add culture. I will share personal stories and things that happened when I was learning, that if someone had told me different I would not have offended people. I will teach you by association and explain why some signs are what they are. If you are looking for a fun , and informative class sign up for mine today.

"My daughter absolutely enjoys her time with Joy. She has always had a desire to learn ASL but there were no consistent opportunities for such an education. When she found out that ASL would meet her foreign language requirement, she started searching and found Take Lessons, which led her to Joy. Joy has a teaching style that has increased my daughter's passion for ASL...so much so, that she intends to continue her ASL education through the college level. If you or your child are serious about learning ASL, I highly recommend Joy. She should be in the schools with this."

What's the Difference Between ASL & BSL?

Have you been wondering, "What's the difference between ASL and BSL?" This is a great question, and deserves a little more background. First of all, did you know that sign language is not universal? Just like there are numerous spoken languages (around 6,500) used across the globe, there are also many sign languages (somewhere between 138-300) used by various Deaf communities. Though it’s a common belief, sign languages do not stem from a country’s spoken language. The natural develo …
