What Our Students Say

Dr Dion’s knowledge in the business area was extremely evident. Each week that we spoke, my mind was expended and grew with understanding and awareness. It was because of his teaching style that made the concepts easy to grasp and also meant questions were minimal because it was explained in such a way. In fact, the entire lesson time felt more like a conversation with a mentor rather than a teacher speaking at you during school.
