About Us

Founded on February 14th, 2005, Within Reach Learning Center was created to meet the overwhelming demand for educational services to supplement those being provided in schools.

Since opening its doors, Within Reach has worked with over 1,500 students, helping each of them to improve their reading, math, and/or writing skills. Priding itself on providing excellent services and earning referrals, Within Reach gets all of its business through referrals and generally works with each child in a family after achieving success with the first child.


Within Reach’s mission is simple – helping students to achieve their educational goals. Whether it is helping a student play catch-up, helping advanced students get ahead, improving a student’s confidence, or providing instruction to reinforce what students are learning in school, Within Reach has consistently been there to meet the educational needs of South Orange County’s students and parents.

ABOUT THE OWNER – Janelle Caldwell

As an Orange County native, a USC graduate, and after years of experience working with other learning programs, I decided to start my learning center with the aim of contributing to and improving the education of Orange County’s youth. I wanted to create a program where kids could learn and have fun at the same time! It is my passion to help kids see the fun in reading, math, and writing.

“Be who you needed when you were younger.”  This quote is framed at Within Reach, and it signifies why we do what we do.  It is our motivation.  As a child, I struggled through school.  No one recognized what was happening, and no one knew how to get me back on track.  We tried tutoring and learning centers without success.  They were boring, dark, and depressing.  They felt like a punishment. This is the very reason I created Within Reach!

Within Reach is bright and inviting, and it is comfortable.  We get on the floor with the kids and play educational games.  We challenge them with computer programs.  We teach in small groups of kids a similar levels.  It helps us make the class fun, builds social skills, encourages a little bit of healthy competition, but it also gives us time to work with children on a one-on-one basis and individualize how we teach each student.

I love to see how each students’ confidence grows and how they become excited about these traditional subjects. I am committed to personalizing instruction to each of my students and partnering with parents, schools, and teachers for an even more successful program.
