68% of American 4th graders are failing in reading. Literacy rates in the US and Canada are declining each year. Recent school closures have only made the problem worse.

Demotivation

Children have become less motivated to read for fun. There are many things competing for their attention. Our educational tools need to meet them where they're at in an engaging and fun way.

Our Story

Several years ago, I worked as a private tutor for a boy with dyslexia. He was reading at a first grade level, but was in 5th grade. His school assumed that he couldn't learn to read, so they put him in the back of the classroom and let him listen to books. His parents disagreed and pulled him out to work with me in the mornings instead.

I experimented with various techniques and content, and eventually discovered that he made progress when I let him read books about the topics he was interested in, when he read out loud to me, and when I rewarded him for reaching certain reading milestones. Within 3 months, he was reading on grade level. And most importantly, he was confident in his ability to read and motivated to read on his own.

This experience shaped how I viewed reading instruction, and I combined these learnings with the research I was learning in graduate school. I began to use technology with my students and discovered its' power to motivate and engage children in the learning experience.

In 2019, I decided that I wanted to use what I was learning to build a reading app to motivate children to read, so I left the classroom and went to go work in tech to learn the necessary skills.

Fast forward to 2023, and we founded Quest Learning Technologies at the beginning of the year and launched QuestRead Beta for iOS in October.
