How Do Teachers Use Paper?


Extra support for your classroom goals, your students—and for you

Paper’s Educational Support System is designed to help you do the work you love while getting the assistance you deserve.

Tools that help you excel in a demanding job

Paper delivers personalized on-demand academic support that complements what students learn in your classroom—all while keeping you in the loop.

Unlock time with the help of 24/7 teaching assistants

Paper’s tutors are available anytime and anywhere, helping you optimize your instructional time and reclaim your nights and weekends. In the classroom or after hours, tutors help students solve problems as they arise and turn in their best work. That means fewer hours grading for you and fewer questions to field after the school bell rings.
