Peer vs. Professional Tutoring: Knack’s Perspective on Supporting Students

While professional tutors exist on Knack to ensure that no student is left entirely unsupported, this resource should not be viewed as a replacement for peer tutors. The value that students gain from working with someone who has recently taken their exact course is so significant that subject-level general expert tutoring is really no comparison.

While peer tutoring and professional tutoring each have their own unique benefits, they are not meant to be used exclusively. In fact, using both types of tutoring can create a great mix of academic support for students. By using peer tutors for ongoing support and on-demand tutors for quick help, your students can get the best of both worlds and maximize their academic success.
