Our mission is to maximize the accessibility of personalized peer support for every student, regardless of social or economic background. That's why we make it easy for organizations to pay for tutoring so that students don't have to!

Why it Works

It increases help-seeking and help-giving behavior.

When cost is removed from the equation, two very important things happen.

  • Students are more likely to ask for help when they need it
  • Tutors are more comfortable providing help when they know the student doesn't have to pay

How it Works

Getting Sponsorships

Most sponsorships for which you are eligible for will be automatically applied to your account upon signing up for Knack with your school student account.

Additional sponsorships from Employer Partners may be available and must be applied for by heading to My Sponsorships → Discover Sponsorships. You will be approved if you meet the sponsorship qualifications.

Sponsorship Rates

Fixed Rate (Free for Students)

These sponsorships are always free for students, and tutors get paid a fixed rate.

Discounted Rate

For discounted sponsorships, students get $X/hr off of the tutor's hourly rate. Tutors earn their normal hourly rate.

Qualifying Subjects

Sponsorships may cover all subjects, but sponsorships with qualifying subjects are only eligible for sessions in those qualifying subjects and courses. View individual sponsorship details to see any qualifying subjects.


Students can only use sponsorship for a limited number of hours set by the sponsoring organization.  Don't worry, we'll let you know if you are getting close to running out of sponsored tutoring!

Other Conditions

  • You may only use sponsorships for courses in which you are currently enrolled.
  • Sponsorships are currently only available for hourly rate sessions.
  • Any sessions that exceed limits will charge the student the hourly rate for any overages.
  • Sponsorship funds are available while supplies last and before the expiration date.
