    Hello educators,

    I am a tutor and an undergrad student who is interested in learning more about the concerns and pain points of teachers and homeschooling parents, both before and during the pandemic.

    I am interested in knowing:
    • What your teaching situation looks like: your geographic location, grade level, day-to-day activities, main subjects that you teach, etc.
    • What significant issues have you experienced/are you experiencing with in-person learning?
    • What significant issues have you experienced/are you experiencing with online learning?
    Thanks!

    Looks like someone needs to write a research paper? ;)

    Actually no, I want to work with other undergrad students on a side project to support educators and primary/secondary school students during the pandemic. Right now I'm identifying pain areas then we'll try to generate solutions.

    Is there a preferred approach? Technology, policy, advocacy?

    I think the main skills we could offer would be artistic skills and tech skills. None of us are trained educators yet. We could also possibly do some advocacy but we might not be much use for it.

    Is this open to former teachers who switched jobs before the pandemic, by any chance?

    Certainly if they wanted to help that would be very useful to us. Maybe if we made materials that are intended to be educational they could correct any issues in content/presentation of material.
