Hoots Tutoring

Hoots is a non-profit, student-run tutoring platform designed with flexibility and simplicity in mind. Hoots was designed and implemented with the sole purpose of providing increased access to tutoring services for UVA students and strive to enable peer-to-peer connections.

This year, we are proud to bring you an improved user experience by partnering with Knack Technologies, including iPhone and Android apps, diverse pay options, and a simplified scheduling system. With Knack providing substantial backend support, Hoots vets tutors and serves as the knowledge base for the UVA community.

How It Works
