More about GQ Reeves: “G.Q.” Reeves’ vision for Coaching to Success stemmed from his own adversities that he faced while growing up. Like most children, Reeves was forced to develop his own study tools after educators expressed lack of BElief in his achievement. After earning degrees in Early Childhood Education, Middle Grade Education and Juvenile Justice, and a Master’s Degree in Family Counseling, Reeves wanted to stress the importance of education despite his many adversities. Mr. Reeves is also a successful writer for a major record label, as well as an underground artist. As a New York native, Reeves has been a part of hit shows for both B.E.T. and N.B.C networks, but most importantly Reeves has an extensive background in community service and youth development.
