Hi Jessi:

estoy ayudar? = I am help (which is not a question and, as you can see, the wrong tense)

or yo ayudo = I help (not a question but correct)

The question would be:

¿Puedo ayudar? Can I help? (in Spanish we do not say the subject most of the time)

Estoy: I am

Yo: I - as the subject in a sentence

Lo: him, also means 'it' when the thing talked about is a male-word

use estoy when talking about I am.... use yo when your saying I.... before a conjugated verb and use lo when your saying it (masculine)

hope this helps smile

Hi, Jessica. You need to be more specific in your question, since the one above has no real answer.
