Northeastern Peer Tutoring

Free Peer Tutoring on the Knack Platform


Northeastern Peer Tutoring has partnered with Knack. A company that understands the Northeastern culture and aligns with the fundamental principles, standards, and traditions of Peer Tutoring at Northeastern; striving to create rich, purposeful, and meaningful experiences for both the tutors and the tutees. Starting in Fall 2023, the peer tutoring services at Northeastern University will be offered via Knack – a leading peer tutoring platform enabling our undergraduate students from across the Northeastern network to learn from one another. All Northeastern peer-to-peer tutoring services offered on the Knack platform will continue to be FREE to undergraduate students currently enrolled in courses seeking tutoring assistance. Northeastern Peer Tutoring on the Knack platform will offer 1-on-1 and small group tutoring in-person (when available) and online for all undergraduate courses offered each semester. Our goal is to create synergy among students, faculty, and tutors where the student’s academic and professional growth and development is a priority.
