Why You Should Teach a Skill on Skillit

Skillit is a unique platform that brings together people who have skills to teach and those who want to learn.

As a Maker, you have the chance to permanently change other people's lives for the better – and your own. 

Here's why you should teach a skill on skillit!

Help others

Teaching is incredibly rewarding. A good teacher can inspire anyone to learn anything. You can develop someone’s subject knowledge, their mind and maybe even the way they view the world. One-on-one teaching is particularly important because it allows you to demonstrate skills and particular nuances, plus students can ask questions in real-time - something that videos and online learning can’t provide.

Share your passion

There’s nothing better than the feeling of joy that comes with sharing your favourite sport, hobby, recipe or another passion project with someone. Particularly, when you find a shared spark of interest. 

Build your network

Today our world is built on referrals. We are always asking our family and friends for recommendations on books, movies, advisors, teachers so learning should be no different. Once you start to become known for your skill, students will share their great experience with others and soon others will seek you out. 

Expand your audience

Skillit gives you access to Dreamers that you never had access to before. Our reach, advertising budget, network, and platform give you access and a way to reach an audience beyond your capability and build your brand, earning capacity and reach the way you want it to grow.

Make Money

With Skillit, you can also make money while reaping the benefits above. You set the terms of how, when, where and for how much you want to offer your Skillit for and leave the rest to us.

Whether your skill is your side-hustle or your full-time job, Skillit can help you reach for entrepreneurial goals.

The New Site That’s Airbnb – but for Skills

More people are freelancing than ever before.

U.S. consulting firm, McKinsey estimates that 27% of U.S. workers are engaged in freelance work. A number which is expected to rise to around 50% in 2030. In Canada, over 20% of all workers are estimated to be freelancers.

The appeal for most is the flexibility and independence of being your own boss or pursuing work that aligns more with your personal passions. 

As humans, we tend to think of learning a new skill or “going back to school” as something you’d do when looking to change careers, or to upgrade within your current one.

Take Action - Develop your Skill-Set

Lifelong learning has incredible benefits, both personal and professional. It makes communities more productive and innovative and gives employees the ability to cope with constantly changing workplaces.

Lifelong learning helps us stay sharp as we age and is also important for a successful economy. It helps us communicate better, socialize more effectively, and achieve greater success.

Success, however, it’s defined. Takes action and taking good, appropriate action takes skills. 

Skillit wants to help people learn new skills to live their best life. Our new online platform matches people with skills to teach and those who want to learn, to allow anyone to be the Jack or Jill of any trade.

We give you the ability to be the master of your knowledge, build a toolbox of everything you need to succeed in any situation and know how to solve the problems that you encounter. Your skillset is dependent on what knowledge you have access to.

“Think of it as the Airbnb model for skills, learn a handy skill like patching drywall or sewing a button. Learn to cook lasagna from scratch from an Italian Nona or how to paint from an artist.  Learn an instrument or language or upskill your business chops to land your next job or promotion. Whatever skill you want to teach or learn, we can match you with people in your community who share your passion.” 

Zahra Al-Harazi

“Just as Airbnb has made it simple to find and book a room or house anywhere in the world. We want to make it that simple to learn or teach a skill to live your best life.” 

Al-Harazi added.

Skillit is where you learn everything you want to learn, hands-on and in person, the way learning should be.

The dropout rate of online learning is 97% because you can’t learn in a vacuum. We make it easy and fun.

Have an experience while you travel the world of skills and knowledge and find an amazing home to stay.
