welcome to STUDY BUDDY

Founded in 1977 to lead philanthropic initiatives on behalf of the burgeoning electronics industry, NSTEP’s focus turned to supporting science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, as American students began to fall behind in these essential subjects. With NSTEP’s background in electronics and innovation, we understood and uniquely felt the need to improve students understanding of math and science. Our signature program, Study Buddy Online Homework Help, Study Buddy is an innovative, collaborative program in which volunteer high school honor students connect with struggling students in math or science (completely online) to give instant help, in real-time, using real homework problems. We seek and create partnerships with school districts, schools, and after-school organizations to reach and support those students who need math or science help now. At the very core of what we do is connecting students who need help with other students who can give it. When we make those connections over and again, students improve their math and science understanding and improved self-confidence in subject mastery. NSTEP’s goals with the Study Buddy Program are to:

Create and promote a relevant, powerful homework help program that responds to the needs of and appeals to today’s youth using tools already popular such as technology, the internet, texting, and peer-to-peer learning; Close the achievement gap between low income and/or minority students whose standardized testing scores persistently lag behind their peers by providing a much-needed after-school service; and

Tap into the skills, time and energy of the best and brightest high school students to help peer students, while sharpening the skills of the next generation of working professionals. Maintain an active, quality tutor base that immediately responds to student requests for help.

Why Study Buddy ?

Does my school qualify to receive Study Buddy tutoring?

Study Buddy is targeted at serving the economically challenged student. If your school or after school program supports students who attend a Title I School or a large majority of your students live in impoverished neighborhoods or can’t afford the cost of tutoring; or qualify for the Federal Free or Reduced Meal Program then you are eligible for the Study Buddy program. You may also qualify if you are supported by a grant. Send an email to our team to ask to participate at studybuddy@studybuddyhelp.org.

How do colleges and universities evaluate community service when admitting new students?

NSTEP has spoken with several university admissions officers regarding this important issue. We would like to share the response of an admissions director from a leading competitive university. As schools become more and more selective, they are forced to look at a complete view of a student, rather than simply his/her grades and test scores. Selective institutions don’t just look highly upon community service, it’s practically expected. We take a look at how involved someone is in each particular extracurricular event. While anyone can list 20 organizations that they “belong to,” we appreciate students that have a couple of pursuits that they are truly passionate about. We highly regard leadership and longevity in extracurricular activities. Someone who has been part [of Study Buddy], stayed with it for a few years, and perhaps tutored other mentor

What if the tutor doesn't know how to do the problem?

The tutor should kindly inform the student that they don't know how to do the problem.  And then both the student and the tutor should log-out of the whiteboard. The student should request a new tutor, and the tutor should learn how to do the subjects in which they tutor!

Do you have to be scheduled in order to get credit for answering submitted questions?

No, there is no scheduling required prior to answering submitted questions.

Is the time recorded only when in a book with a student or while you are waiting to tutor someone?

With our new website, we are still working on calculating the time that you have logged in to Study Buddy and are waiting to tutor.  

If someone submits a question does that mean that they are not present at their computer?

Generally, when you are requested for immediate tutoring, the person is present at their computer.  However, a student may also submit a question, and then log off.  You can still address the question even if they're not there.

Can a tutor become a tutee to get help on their homework?

Yes.  However, the tutor will need to use a different email to register as a student.

Can we use Study Buddy as much as we want?

Yes!  There is no limit to the number of times you may request tutoring or give tutoring.  Tutoring sessions may last as long as you need them to be.

How does my teacher get my community service credit?

Study Buddy will send a monthly report to your teacher.

Does a tutor receive community service credit hours for the time spent waiting to tutor?

Yes. A tutor will receive partial credit, up to 10 hours a month

How much credit do you get for tutoring?

Coming soon...

On the whiteboard, do students and tutors have the same capabilities?

Yes, the tutor and student can both draw, write, etc. on the screen.  Chatting occurs in the sidebard.

Do I need to schedule myself to tutor?

The short answer is yes.  We'd like all tutors to schedule themselves so we know who is available and when.  You should log-in to Study Buddy when you are available and ready to immediately tutor.  There are two ways you can tutor: Immediate or Scheduled Tutoring.  Immediate tutoring occurs when you log-in to your account, and are requested as a tutor.  A pop-up will occur on your screen, and you'll have a chance to accept that tutoring session.  The other way is to SCHEDULE yourself to be available at a future time, and a student will select that time.  You and the student will meet at the pre-scheduled time on the whiteboard in the link provided.
