Norman Drexel

Founder and CEO

Our mission is to educate the next generation by providing private one-on-one tutoring using professional teachers who are academically qualified with proven teaching experience as well as a strong desire to help children grow.

REACH was founded on the simple philosophy that every student in California deserves the best academic support available. Every student enrolled in a REACH program receives high quality tutoring customized to their specific needs and learning style. Our rigid hiring process allows us to retain the best professional tutors in the state – tutors that have the academic and teaching qualifications we require and have demonstrated a passion for helping children succeed. All this helps insure that your child will have a successful and enriching tutoring experience.
REACH is not a franchise company. We are a California based company, founded in 2005 and managed by professional, experienced California educators. Approved by the California Department of Education.

Directors

Our directors oversee the entire tutoring process from the initial consultation, to monitoring the student’s progress and working with parents. Nikki and Andrew have many years of experience as California teachers as well as private tutors.
