The purpose of the Study Buddy program at Selnate is to provide our students the opportunity to get to know a native English speaker, to practice speaking together, and to receive extra help they might need with their homework. Study buddies are like volunteer tutors. It is also a wonderful opportunity to build a friendship with someone from another culture whom students–and volunteers—otherwise would not have met. Following are some of the things that Study Buddies will help with:
a. Improving conversation skills
b. helping with homework
c. introducing you to American culture
d. guiding students to learn independently
Study Buddies work with students for one hour per week on a volunteer basis.
Selnate appreciates the valuable service provided by Study Buddies, and we are always looking for more great volunteers. Study Buddies should have a great command of the English language and generally be of college age. Study Buddies usually meet at Selnate or other public place at a time that works well for both the student and volunteer. Volunteers can receive a certificate of service hours if desired.
