    Our mission is to change the world by helping children become better readers.

    Reading competency correlates to some of the most crucial aspects of a child’s life including academic success, self esteem, and earning potential. But children are being lured away from reading by technology and mindless games, and not achieving their reading potential.

    Reading Buddy Software uses the attraction of technology and gaming to hook children into reading practice that improves their fluency and comprehension.

    When Ari Fertel, our founder, heard her kids talking to Siri, she realized that if her iPhone could talk to her kids then she could create software that could tutor them reading.

    It took years of development and a team of scientists, software engineers, educators,

    reading specialists, gaming experts, and the most advanced speech recognition company in the world, but in the end Reading Buddy Software was born—cutting edge technology that listens, responds, and teaches as your child reads.

    Now you don’t have to bribe your child to read with you or drag him to an expensive tutor. Reading Buddy’s Point & Prize System and game mechanics motivates your child to read every day. And Reading Buddy’s Responsive Speech Recognition (RSR) technology monitors your child’s reading and helps them with visual cues and, if needed, a correct pronunciation. It’s like having a tutor in your computer. But this tutor is fun, plays games, gives prizes, keeps track of points, is available 24/7, and doesn’t charge you by the hour.

    Reading Buddy Software’s methodology is consistent with the findings of the National Reading Panel.

    The Precision Memory Tracking Technology (PMTT) records your child’s weaknesses, creates personalized practice readings, and drills your child until mastery is achieved.
