Why Knack?

A targeted tutoring experience

A network of qualified peer tutors ensures Muma College of Business students, in the toughest high-DFW gateway courses, are met with the personalized academic assistance needed to succeed, when it's needed most.

Eliminating wasted spend

An appointment-based delivery of tutoring eliminates wasted spend by ensuring peer tutors are only paid after each completed session as 1099 contractors via Knack.

Ease of management

Knack's managed services approach meant there was limited administrative lift required from the Muma College of Business team.

Corporate-sponsored programming

After a successful pilot, Dean Limayem presented the managed peer tutoring program to the Muma College of Business Advisory Council, which resulted in corporate partners sponsoring 100% of the tutoring program costs; creating flexible jobs for top students to serve as peer tutors and in turn, offering free tutoring for business students.

Knack quote

Knack has allowed us to launch a scalable peer tutoring program covering many of the courses our tutoring center was unable to service. Not only did Knack's Campus Success Team and technology enable a simple roll-out, but their model of engaging employer partners as sponsors created a win-win and made it very affordable for our college."
