How Knack Is Transforming Tutoring

Herzing University is proud to be partnering with Knack and provide continued access to educational resources for its students.

Picture this: it is two in the morning, and you are no closer to understanding an exam concept than you were an hour ago. Between your full-time job and classes, you were able to cram in some study time, but you’re still struggling. After scouring through your notes, deep diving into YouTube crash courses, and texts to your best friend in the class go unanswered, you realize you might be in trouble.

As you continue to scroll through the far-flung corners of the internet to try and find a resource that will explain the content to you, knowing that on-campus tutoring isn’t available until after your 8 AM exam, the situation looks bleak. This is where Knack comes in!

Knack is a learning platform that provides 24/7 online tutoring for course-specific peer tutoring and mentorship. Herzing University is proud to be partnering with Knack and provide continued access to educational resources for its students.

Why Knack?

Whether in-person or online, morning or night, 1-on-1 or in a group with a friend, Knack focuses on accessibility to students.

One of the most significant shifts observed post-pandemic is the heightened demand for flexibility and accessibility in support services. With students at eleven campuses across eight states and an online division, Herzing University partnered with Knack to provide amplified academic support for all students.

In addition to on-campus tutoring services, students can utilize Knack at any time and regardless of location through the Canvas Student Resource Center.  As a result, students can access academic support not only whenever they need it, but also wherever they need it!

It’s Easy to Use

You may read all this and think, “Great, now how do you access this resource?” To get started with Knack, Herzing students only have to complete four simple steps:   

  • Create an account with your HU email address.
  • Submit a request and review the qualified tutors for the courses you are interested in.
  • Select your tutor and schedule a session.
  • Meet with your tutor online or in person.

Knack is available both online and on mobile applications. All students, regardless of their circumstances, have access to the resources and assistance they need to thrive academically and personally.

Unlock Support for Every Course

Students should utilize these comprehensive support services for several reasons. Our tutors aren't just your average study buddies—they're experts in over 40 subject areas. Whether you're diving into the depths of chemistry or unraveling the mysteries of nursing calculations, Knack can help!

And here's the kicker: you can shoot over your burning questions or essays, and within 24 hours, you'll have some top-notch feedback headed your way. Besides the fact that it's super convenient (no more late-night study panic!), it's also a game-changer for your learning journey. With tailored support at your fingertips, you'll be tackling challenges like a pro and cruising toward success in no time.

Peer Tutors

Peer tutors, equipped with institution-specific knowledge and firsthand experience, offer a unique level of support and understanding to their peers. But don’t just take our word for it! The results ultimately speak for themselves. A 2022 study found:

  • 89.4% of students credited tutors on Knack for helping them improve their grades
  • 96.5% of students said that tutors on Knack helped them build confidence in their studies
  • 99.8% Knack session satisfaction rate

An additional advantage is that many of the Knack tutors are Herzing University students and have often taken the same course you’re enrolled in! Not only will some of your tutors understand the subject area, but they will also understand what it means to be a Herzing student enrolled in your course!

As higher education progresses, institutions must adapt and innovate their support services to match students' dynamic needs. Embracing peer tutoring as a fundamental aspect of student support can lead to improved academic success and comprehensive student growth. Are you ready to take your studies to the next level? Let's do this, with Knack!
