What is Smart Alec?

Smart Alec is the in-person, on-demand tutoring platform. Parents and students can seamlessly book same-day sessions for last-minute academic help or use our scheduler to find convenient session times in the coming weeks, no matter how busy their schedules. Smart Match, our student-tutor compatibility algorithm, and our rigorous hiring process, ensures that we connect students with truly great teachers matched to their specific needs.
