Learn with Homer

Learn with Homer is a design-driven media and technology company on the path to redefining literacy in the digital age. Our studio of world-class artists, developers, and storytellers work in collaboration with leading education experts to craft a highly engaging and immersive early learning experience that teaches children ages 2-8 how to read and build knowledge.

Learn with Homer champions a broader definition of literacy for children living in the global knowledge economy. Whether a child is a native speaker or learning English as a second language, our product platform supports literacy in its many forms: visual, digital, cultural and scientific.

Learn with Homer is transforming the $12 billion supplemental learning market and $35 billion English as a second language market by offering families home access to the best teaching in the world. Over 1 billion children globally need to learn English every year.

In just six months since launch, over 23 million lessons have been completed by over 1 million children in 160 countries. Every 3 seconds a child is creating user-generated content somewhere in the world on Learn with Homer’s literacy platform.

Homer was founded in 2012 by well-known education reformer, Senior Advisor to the Common Core Literacy standards, and entrepreneur, Stephanie Dua. The company is based in Brooklyn, NY.
