    No. "On" is not needed.

    "I could use some help with the dishes."

    If preposition 'on' is replaced with preposition 'with', it will be correct, I think.

    I need help preparing for the final.
    I need help to prepare for the final.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It doesn't seem very natural to me.

    If you're desperate to use a preposition, I think in is OK.
