1. What exactly is TeachersHelpingTeachers.org?
TeachersHelpingTeachers.org is an educational matching service for educators. We are in all 50 states! This site pairs Mentees (teachers that need help) with Mentors (teachers that can help) to provide assistance and support with grading and filing papers, setting up and changing bulletin boards and classrooms, writing lesson/unit plans, evaluations and MORE.
2. How do I make money as a Mentor with TeachersHelpingTeachers.org?
Mentors make money by being selected by Mentees to help with projects(s) or by choosing project(s) posted by Mentees. Mentors submit a proposal to help with the project (based upon credentials, experience and ideas promoting themselves) to Mentees. Mentees then decide whether or not to accept the proposal. If the proposal is accepted, the Mentor and Mentee agree upon price and time frame for submitted proposal for the project(s). Once the project has been completed, funds will transfer to the Mentor through their PayPal account.
3. How do Mentees and Mentors communicate?
Mentees and Mentors communicate on the TeachersHelpingTeachers.org website via the workspace.

If you are a Mentee and Mentors are not choosing to help with your projects; 1. You can reach out to potential Mentors by clicking on the “Find Mentors” tab and reaching out to them. 2. You can choose to purchase an “add on” for a nominal fee that will mark your project as Urgent and/or display it on the Homepage and/or display it in the Categories page on the TeachersHelpingTeachers.org website.
