TESTIMONIALS

 

“I am very pleased to recommend Dwayne Matthews as a speaker.

His presentation to our parent community has been an excellent strategic tool to engage the parents in the community and teaching them about what is needed to help their child succeed in the future.

Dwayne not only presented to the school in an engaging, honest and very personable way; he provided us with 6 online lessons, which has been an excellent reference tool for parent, teachers and students.”

“Dwayne Matthews has such a vast array of knowledge and strategic intelligence. His enthusiastic, charismatic and no nonsense delivery makes him easy to understand and fun to listen to. He has the ability to capture an audience of hundreds or one five-year-old all within the same sentence. I have had the opportunity to use his advice as a mother, educator and administrator while recommending him to many others. A class act all around.”

TV Interviews on Your Morning 

Appearance 1: How to help your kids thrive at school

Appearance 2: Making the most of your child’s screen time


Amazing interview! Speaking as a parent whose child was in your class and another that interacted with you as well in the school over a decade ago you left a great impression on them. They incorporated many of the values you taught in your class. As a parent who attended your class during your teaching it was amazing to witness the way you taught and the respect you treated everyone with, you and are a valued asset to the education of so many children.  ~Anonymous Parent
