Whether a retired or furloughed teacher, college student studying special education or related field, or a top high-school performer, our platform has a variety of experts across many age ranges and expertise. If you have experience in, educational credentials in, or simply a passion for working with students with disabilities, we encourage you to apply.
Due to the nature of the goals of this program, providers must be willing to work in-person. Learning providers set their own rates of pay, typically commensurate with their education and experience, with the stipulation that they cannot charge more than $75 per hour. Once your bio is available on the site, families in your area can begin scheduling introductory interviews with you.

Frequently Asked Questions
WHERE CAN I GET A BACKGROUND CHECK?
If you are a resident of Ohio, you can submit either a BCI or FBI background check. If you are not an Ohio resident, you will need to submit an FBI background check. Find locations that offer the type you need. If you must submit a code, please use 5123 169. We suggest sending the background check to your home address and scanning in a copy to your application
ARE SERVICES VIRTUAL OR IN-PERSON?
We are currently only adding learning providers who are able to provide in-person services due to the nature of the program offering support to families with students with disabilities who are already struggling with online learning.
HOW WILL I GET PAID?
Learning providers will be paid directly by the site administrator once per week (typically Fridays unless a holiday week, in which case will be paid on the Monday following the holiday).
CAN I BOOK APPOINTMENTS FOR CLENTS?
No. Clients must book their own appointments directly through the site in order to pay for their services with their “LearningOHIO” plan. Learning providers do not have access to this.
