I was ready to brush off my high school spanish for a few months when I had some down time from my typical committments. Joy was amazing! She was patient, fun, and most importantly made the lessons relevant to my life and work! It made it so much easier to re-learn as we were focusing on things of interest and easily applicable to my day-to-day life. I highly recommend Joy - if I get another period of downtime I will absolutely go back to Joy to pick up where we left off!

I have worked with Joy for three years teaching English to members of the Hispanic community. She has organized, prepared, and taught lessons that are both beneficial and fun. Having an out-going personality, she adds vitality to her teaching that keeps her students' attention and encourages their participation in class. She is willing to help in any way and easily improvises when faced with a challenge. Joy is an asset to our program and lives up to her name.
