Being a Study Buddy is the perfect part time job while you are studying at the university!
It can often be difficult for students to manage their studies in a useful way, and sometimes they need tips on how to study or help with a subject or set of exams. This is where the tutors, our Study Buddies, come in.
The age gap between students and their Study Buddy is much closer than the one with their teachers, meaning Study Buddies can offer a different way of explaining things as they have gone through similar experiences just a few years previously. Being close in age also makes it easier for the student and the Study Buddy to relate to each other, which enables for a close relationship and a high understanding of each others situation.
At Studybuddy we offer a flexible approach for our students and we prioritise their individual needs. We make sure that all students are matched with their Study Buddy with regards to subject knowledge, place of tuition and personality. Since we match based on personality, the tuition becomes a fun and rewarding moment for both the student and the Study Buddy.
Oblie Botchway, who has a degree in Biochemistry from Imperial College London and now studies at the University of Law, has been a Study Buddy for over two years and loves his job!
”I think what's really good about Studybuddy is that the tutors are people who recently did the same thing as the students, and it makes the students feel inspired by it”, Oblie explains.
This inspiration and different approach to learning has proven to give great results, even in the tougher subjects such as maths and sciences.
”One of the students I had when I first started - when I began tutoring him he was on the D/C boundary and ended up with a B, which was great! I saw a big change in his attitude and he really wanted to do well”.
Oblie further explains that he really appreciates the process of matching the students not only with a tutor who knows their subject extremely well, but who they are also likely to have the right personal relationship with. This makes the job as a Study Buddy more rewarding on a personal level. Together with being a great merit on your personal resume, he would really recommend the job to other students!
