Study Buddy

The information on this page is focused on our intensive ESL, TOEFL Preparation, and College Preparation courses.

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 is always looking for great volunteers!

Interested in being a Study Buddy?

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.
