    Ari Fertel Introduces Reading Buddy

    Ari Fertel is the inventor of Reading Buddy, a speech recogition reading software program that turns struggling readers into fluent readers in less than 6 months.

    Ari Fertel developed the only reading software program for children that "listens" to children read and provides real-time corrective feedback (like a tutor). She also created the Reading Buddy Point & Prize system, which is a motivational program built-in to Reading Buddy that keeps children engaged in their reading remediation process.

    Ari Fertel was inspired to create Reading Buddy after she discovered that her son’s reading was below grade-level.

    Ari is also an educational consultant who specializes in resolving reading deficiencies in children ages 6-15.

    Ari lives with her husband and 5 children (including triplets!) in Baltimore, Maryland.
