“Prior to the pandemic, we noticed a decline in the number of students attending our tutoring center, or even serving as a tutor. Knack provided a solution for us that helped us provide more accessibility to our changing student body and allowed us to hire more tutors due to the flexibility in employment it offered these students as well. We like how our student tutors gain valuable work experiences and skills, which are valuable for future employment.”

Robin Cheramie, Dean of the College of Business at The University of Akron
