Knack Tutoring

UNH has partnered with Knack to help strengthen the peer learning community on campus! With Knack, any enrolled undergraduate student at UNH can get help from a fellow peer that already aced your class. You can choose to meet up online on the Knack platform or on campus in person!

If you’ve aced a course, sign up as a Knack Tutor to help your peers! Your faculty can recommend you as a tutor, too! Do a training online and start taking requests. Knack pays you $15/hr. You work the hours you want, when you want, and help out another UNH student! There are also perks and swag you can win!
