Knack – Tutoring Simplified

October 3, 2016

I’m going to try my best to not make this blog post a complete husband brag. There have been countless evenings of David hard at work on his laptop pouring his tech skills into this side project. I’m so proud of him!!!Back in early 2015, David reconnected with his friend Samyr from the University of Florida and collaborated with 3 other guys to create an app that should be on every college student’s phone. Introducing Knack – Tutoring Simplified.
Knack (think: “You have such a knack for chemistry, can you tutor me?”) is an on-demand tutoring service app for college students. After creating a free account and a few taps on your phone, you can easily connect with a peer student that provides tutoring services. Or if you’re looking for a side job during your college years, you can create an account, submit your transcript and quickly get approved as a Knack tutor. Scheduling, messages, payments, and reviews are all done through the app. It has been so cool to see the growth of Knack, from an idea almost two years ago to it being a fully functional app that is frequently used across college campuses. I love seeing pictures of real life tutoring sessions on Knack’s instagram and to think that David’s programing skills created that moment and helped connect students. Knack is growing like crazy at UF, UCF, FSU, USF, and it’s moving up the East Coast. If Knack isn’t on your campus yet, you can request access through the app. I can’t wait to see the future of Knack! So proud of these guys!
