Celebrating great teachers on YouTube

A great teacher can unleash a student’s curiosity and change the direction of their life. Today, in honor of World Teachers’ Day, we are celebrating some of the amazing teachers around the globe who share their passion for education in the classroom and on YouTube.

Elia Bombardelli (Italy)

Elia is a math teacher at the Liceo Scientifico Galilei in Trento and at Liceo Steam International in Rovereto. Not only is his YouTube channel a great place to quickly review key math concepts before an exam, it’s also full of science experiments that range from making a coin battery to exploring how a cloud is formed. 


KruNoklek (Thailand) 

Jeerapat Sukanghong is a primary school teacher from the Phetchabun province of Thailand who is passionate about bringing her lessons to students in all corners of the country. Inspired by the late King Rama IX’s initiative to bring education to students in remote places via satellite, she decided to start her own journey on YouTube. Combining music and pop culture moments, notably adapting some of her own lessons into the viral PPAP format, Jeeraphat’s fun approach to teaching makes her one of the most popular creators in Thailand with over 5 million subscribers across both her channels.


Rafael Procopio (Brazil)

Rafael is a Brazilian mathematics professor who uses his YouTube channel to experiment with new and creative visual techniques for teaching math. Rafael, who has become a beloved figure in his hometown of Rio de Janeiro, has over 1.3 million subscribers on his channels.


Rachel’s English (USA)

Rachel’s English is a YouTube channel dedicated to helping non-native speakers improve their spoken English and listening comprehension. Having taught ESL off and on since 1999, Rachel became interested in developing a pronunciation-focused resource while living in Germany under the Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship program in 2008. Rachel, who is also a classical singer, studied with highly acclaimed vocal teachers and coaches and brings a body of detailed knowledge connected to the voice, placement, and the musical nature of speech to her work as a pronunciation coach.


Eddie Woo (Australia)

Eddie has a unique ability to take complex mathematical concepts out of the abstract, and into the real world — whether it be recognizing geometric patterns in nature or the daily arithmetic required to balance a family checkbook. Though he claims to have once struggled with the subject, his unique approach to teaching math has gained him a global following of nearly 400,000 subscribers, and propelled him to become a finalist for the 2018 Global Teacher Award. He recently published his first book, Woo’s Wonderful World of Maths.

Uwaga, Naukowy Bełkot – “Beware! Scientific Babble” (Poland)

Dawid is a PhD student and chemistry teacher at the Marie Curie-Skłodowska University in Lublin. Dawid’s channel examines a broad array of scientific topics, such as the true value of gold or the placebo effect in research, and in doing so has attracted over 335,000 subscribers. He also created a docu-series about the Chernobyl disaster.
