PEACE Tutoring

PEACE was inspired by the fact that a college education should not be about competing with peers and merely obtaining a grade, but rather about working with one’s peers to pursue genuinely one’s academic interests and make the most of all that college has to offer - both intellectually and socially.

This year, we are proud to bring you an improved user experience by partnering with Knack Technologies, including iPhone and Android apps and a simplified scheduling system. With Knack providing substantial backend support, PEACE serves as the peer knowledge base for the UC Berkeley community.

How It Works


Find your perfect tutor. Tutors are students that aced your exact class previously and are vetted by PEACE and Knack.


Select your tutor and use the Knack app to schedule a session (you will be prompted to download the Knack app).


Meet up and get the help you need. Use promo code PEACE to get a $10 credit towards any tutor.

Who is Knack? Why do I need to download an app?


Knack is a mobile app that empowers students who’ve aced their classes to sign up and help their peers - PEACE has partnered with Knack to bring an improved user experience (mobile first) to students at UC Berkeley seeking tutors. Knack simply handles all the logistics: messaging, scheduling, billing, rating/reviewing.
