1. Background Check
Before you can work as an online tutor, please click on the link below to complete your criminal background check ($14 cost) with Sterling Volunteers for the Homework Hotline Program. This requirement applies to all volunteers 18 years old or older:
All volunteers that are under 18 years old with a valid student ID in the DFW area will have his/her parent/guardian fill out the online registration form on this website. Please click on the tab that allows you to "Register your Child." Note, you will need to provide a photo/image of your child's active student ID/Badge of a local DFW area school for this program guidelines. A Homework Hotline contact will reach out to you for confirmation of your child's subject interests for tutoring, etc. We will address any questions and/or concerns, if applicable.
2. Registration Form
If you pass the background check, you will then be sent a one-page online registration form to complete and an ELPS Foundation liability disclaimer form that will need to be signed and returned.
Once all forms have been completed you will need to go through the Homework Helpline Training program. We do want to ensure that all volunteers are compliant and understand best practices for tutoring with our organization.
When training is complete, you will then be entered into our matching schema and we will begin matching you with students to render tutoring.
