To ensure you start off on the right foot, it's recommended that you complete training once you've completed your tutor profile(Training may be a requirement at your University). During training, which should take no more than two hours to complete, you will learn the ins-and-outs of effective tutoring. Once you complete it, you'll officially be a Knack Certified Tutor.
