Homer is the global children’s media company behind the # 1 Learn-to-Read Program. Our vision is to give kids everywhere a better future – the nearly 24 million children in the US and almost 500 million children globally who need to learn to read.

We set out to solve a simple but huge problem: teaching the world’s children to read. In America alone, 2 out of 3 children don’t ever learn to read well, even though a child’s reading level by 3rd grade is the single biggest predictor of future success. Yet when looking to help our own kids we were bewildered by the morass of solutions, none of which could teach children to read from start to finish.

We developed a one-stop reading program and delivered it using mobile technology. Homer is a disruptively affordable, simple-to-use, start-to-finish reading program that children can do on their own. And it’s available to everyone with a phone in their pocket. Our results are stunning – kids working with Homer alone for just 15 minutes a day over 6 weeks nearly doubled their reading proficiency.

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 New York, NY.
