Sign up to be a teacher at HELM Learning!

We are looking for driven individuals who are passionate about subjects they want to spread with others.

We are trying to help students around the world get an education while schools are out, and if you are passionate about this, we would love to have you on our team!

How teaching at HELM Learning works

Teachers can select a class time that works best for them. Our classes will be held over Zoom, and are completely free for students to use.

Teachers will receive community service/volunteer hours for their work.

Teachers CAN teach with a partner, so that they will co-teach. Just make sure both teachers fill out this form.

More information about how the class structure works will be spread throughout this form.

Please enter in information about your class.
Note: Only the teacher of the class should fill this out
