Become a teacher on HomeTeacher and be a part of the movement. Support children learning from home and your fellow casual teachers in need of extra income support.
What is HomeTeacher and who is behind it?
HomeTeacher is a new service that connects parents who need extra learning support for their school aged children with accredited teachers, to engage in one-on-one online learning for a set time.
HomeTeacher is brought to you by ClassCover, the platform that connects thousands of schools with thousands of casual teachers across Australia and New Zealand.
Created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, HomeTeacher’s goal is to connect out of work casual teachers who are in need of extra income to parents and children in urgent need of learning support during this time.
When is this site launching?
HomeTeacher will go live this coming Term 2. The phase 1 launch will see a limited number of teachers live on site while we work on refining the offering. Phase 2 will be a full site launch so all teachers who are approved to teach can join up and be a part of the HomeTeacher movement.
Pricing and how you will get paid
HomeTeacher will have blanket pricing across all teachers at this point.
The cost of each session is $65 for one hour
HomeTeacher will retain $25 of each payment in order to cover costs. These include insurance, marketing, hosting, and the cost to run the video conferencing software which is charged to us per session.
For each hour taught, you will receive $40 gross and will be responsible for declaring this in order to pay any taxes owing on your income.
How to apply and requirements to join
Are you interested in being a part of HomeTeacher? We would love to have you onboard!
We are taking applications now, and are looking to release our first group of teachers onto the site under ‘Phase 1’ of the HomeTeacher launch and build a good list of teachers ready for the full launch of the site.

This is how we can assure that you are accredited and qualified to teach with all the relevant certifications. This means your teaching registration number (such as NESA if you are in NSW), and your Working With Children Check (WWCC) as a minimum.
