WHAT IS HOOT READING?
Hoot Reading helps kids in Pre-K to Gr. 6 improve and excel at reading by connecting them with real classroom teachers, to read together online over the Hoot Reading App. Our App was designed based on a research project at Sesame Workshop (the creators of Sesame Street).
Our sessions are:
1) Affordable – Hoot Reading is 80% less expensive than most traditional tutors. Our service provides high quality intervention without breaking the bank.
2) Educational – One-on-one reading support with a qualified and experienced classroom teacher.
3) Fun & Easy – Sessions are 20 minutes, easy to schedule, and accessible through an iPad anywhere with wifi.
Hoot Readers made over 150% gains in just three weeks. They also showed increased confidence, literacy, and listening skills.

WHAT MAKES HOOT READING DIFFERENT
We work with every child and teacher to develop an individual learning plan that grows with your child. This plan will include guided reading lessons from our carefully curated library of over 600 high quality levelled texts, personalized instruction, and assessments.
We are parents too, so we understand how important it is to have the right teacher for your child. All of our instructors are real teachers, trained in early guided reading strategies to help foster confidence in your child, and background checked prior to starting.
Our technology allows emerging readers and experienced teachers to read books together, no matter where they are. Our App was designed based on a research project at Sesame Workshop (the creators of Sesame Street).
"We have seen huge growth in Katelyn's reading since joining the Hoot program. The one-on-one nature of the system is something that kids cannot get at school and the quality of the teachers provides a learning experience that would be difficult to replicate at home. It has also been a huge benefit for us over the summer to continue to build on her abilities while not in school. We highly recommend it to anyone with early school-aged children!"
"Shaan is excited about weekly lessons and is fully engaged the entire session. I never have to remind him, nor pressure him to sit for his lessons. He is always eager and participates willingly from start to finish."
"The absolute best thing we’ve found for Rohan to do during school closures is Hoot Reading. The grown ups have their jobs, my older child has her weekly lesson plan from school, but figuring out what Rohan does is on me. It was beyond stressful. Now he reads 1:1 for 20 mins with a Hoot teacher daily. He’s engaged in a way that he would never want to engage with me. It’s absolutely amazing."
