frequently asked questions

Can I choose my child's teacher?

For our Summer Class Pass program, we will match you with the next available teacher to keep our schedule flexible and meet your summer needs. We cannot guarantee the same teacher every time, but you can feel free to request one. All Hoot teachers are hand selected by our team and are elementary school teachers with a special interest and expertise in literacy.

Can I choose the same time every week?

Hoot Flex allows you to choose whatever time works for you up to 2 weeks in advance. If that is the same every week, you can absolutely book that time! If you're looking for a more consistent program with fixed dates every week, you should select the Hoot Fixed summer program.

What's your Summer cancellation policy?
Sessions can be cancelled 24hrs in advance and you will not lose a class session. Please note that if you book a session within the 24hr window this session will be deducted from your total number of session passes. Sessions must be used by the end of the summer term, August 25th.
Can I sign up for Hoot Reading if I don't have an iPad?

Unfortunately Hoot Reading is an App. based platform that is currently only available on an Apple iPad 2 or higher.

What are your hours of operation?

Hoot Flex sessions are available from 9:00am-8pm every day. Hoot Fixed is available from 4 - 8 pm, Monday to Thursday and weekends 9 am - 1 pm. All hours of operation are in central time and may be expanded based on demand.

What reading level does my child need to be?
Whether your child is looking to catch up, keep up, or accelerate their reading, Hoot Reading is an excellent option for all readers, at all levels, going into K to Gr.4.
Extra reading practice benefits readers of all levels and the 1:1 nature of Hoot Reading allows for customized lessons for each student that will help them grow and succeed at their level.
How do the teachers communicate and track my child's progress?

All Hoot teachers report on every session, which books have been read, what progress has been made, and recommendations for the next session so every teacher can work with every student without skipping a beat. Teachers spend time before each session as well to ensure they are prepped and ready to go.

I go to the lake all summer, can I still do Hoot Reading?

Hoot Flex is designed to fit into your summer plans. Sessions can be completed anywhere with Wi-Fi and an iPad. We've had Hoot students complete sessions poolside, from the car on the way to another lesson, at the lake, as well as from the comfort of their own home.

How do you select your teachers?

All of our teachers are hand selected by our team. We go through a four step application process in which we conduct two interviews and complete an up-to-date criminal record and abuse registry check before we make final offers.

We've seen real improvements in our daughter's reading and comprehension since starting with Hoot! She has had a number of teachers and likes them all. I love the convenience of reading anywhere.

What parents are saying

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.

what teachers say

"The interactive nature of the program is very engaging for kids, especially in our digital world! The platform offers a fun way to engage in home reading, to strengthen reading skills and to encourage a love for reading!"

 

—  Ms. Lindsay

"As a 25-year veteran teacher, reading specialist, and mom of a 14-year old, I love literacy education and finding innovative ways to bring daily reading to all children. Hoot is a gem of a program allowing just that! The smart technology and creativity make it an excellent way for teachers to impact children beyond their classroom walls."
