I am currently enrolled in Joy's online Spanish lessons. In the beginning, I was a bit apprehensive about receiving private tutoring over the internet, however my apprehensiveness quickly diminished following my first lesson with Joy. Joy has been a wonderful teacher. Her level of patience is remarkable. Also, the way she presents material is in a concise manner makes learning very attainable. She is very passionate and prideful in her work. She is also always able and willing to answer any questions I have either during our lesson, or on a day we do not meet. Joy is a very talented teacher. She has truly made me desire on continuing more Spanish even after I graduate college. If there was one thing I could change, it would be for us to meet more than twice a week. But, above all I look forward to my lessons with Joy every week.

Joy is very friendly and helpful. She tailors every session to what I am working towards and will integrate any and all materials I have or she can find. Great experience so far!

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!
