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.
