Changing children’s lives through literacy
Hoot Reading is the leading online tutoring service providing 1:1, evidence-based literacy instruction with qualified teachers, at scale.
Explicit instruction and assessments based on structured literacy, informed by the Science of Reading
Our research-backed approach to remote literacy instruction was incubated on a research project at the Nokia Research Lab with Sesame Workshop (the creators of Sesame Street). Our web-based app was designed and developed by leaders in child education to create a synchronous learning experience with proven learning impact.
Why Choose Hoot
Teacher-led tutoring yields the greatest impact on literacy outcomes. All Hoot tutors are qualified teachers holding a B.Ed (or higher), with extensive classroom experience.
All Hoot lessons are 1:1 and assessment-informed, providing a data-driven, individualized lesson plan for every student to improve their skill development, engagement, and attitude toward reading.
Science of Reading
Hoot's pedagogical approach supports reading instruction based on structured literacy, in accordance with the large body of research commonly known as the Science of Reading.
Districts & Schools
Hoot Reading partners with districts and schools across North America to close student achievement gaps in literacy. We offer tutoring and intervention programs that best suit each student and help them learn at an accelerated rate. Programs are designed to be turnkey, flexible, and seamlessly integrate into your students' schedules either in school or at home.
Each child learns at their own pace, and sometimes families need qualified support outside of school hours. Hoot Reading offers 1:1 online literacy tutoring at home to help children keep up, catch up, or advance beyond their grade level. We identify and address each child's unique needs and offer an instructional plan most beneficial to their learning.
