How Does Study Buddy Work?

"Meet Me on Study Buddy!"

How Does it Work?

  • Student Tutors and students needing help "meet" using an online, interactive whiteboard. 
  • Assignments can be uploaded, or written directly on the board. 
  • The sidebar is used to instant chat to solve the problem. 
  • Students and Tutors can both write, draw, and communicate on the board simultaneously. 
  • It’s all in real-time.
  • All sessions are automatically saved, and can be reviewed later. 

Tutoring is free, and unlimited.  Whether there’s a need for help every day or once a month before the big test. 


All student tutors are honor students who are members of Mu Alpha Theta or recommended by their teachers.  At a minimum, tutors are qualified in Basic and Middle School Math, as well as Algebra I.  Some tutors are qualified up to AP Physics and Calculus B/C. 

Tutors register with their school name, teacher sponsor, as well as the list of courses they are qualified to tutor.  Once confirmed by Study Buddy, all tutors fill out their Schedule of Availability so they can be selected to tutor by their schedule.  In addition, tutors may wait online to be pulled into an Immediate tutoring session!


First, sign up!  Then log-in and get started….

  • Choose whether to have a tutor from your own school or go random, and choose one from somewhere else in the country!
  • Now, Schedule your tutor (from a few minutes from now or a week ahead!).  Choose the subject, date, and then you’ll see a list of all tutors available then.  Choose a Tutor.  You and the tutor will receive an email and a text notification regarding the date and time of the tutoring session.
  • Go to your Dashboard at the appointed time, and “View” the session – you’ll automatically be brought into a whiteboard.  Type or upload your problem(s), and start chatting!
  • Or, if there are tutors online (check the number online at the top of the page), ask for an “Immediate” Tutor.  You’ll automatically be brought into the whiteboard where you can start right away working with a tutor.
