Study Buddy is an organization that tutors students at Selinsgrove Intermediate School. SU students are matched with a "buddy" at the school and help them with math and reading skills.
"Study Buddy is more than a tutoring program. It is a chance to interact with the children in a less-structured environment. Even though it is important to get their schoolwork and homework done in the tutoring time after school, you still get the chance to talk to them. The Study Buddy tutors help the students academically and socially. Study Buddy tutors and the 'buddies' look forward to their time every week with each other. It is an amazing program with great outcomes."

"I am really enjoying my time with Study Buddy. It gives me a chance to connect to an individual student on an extended basis and helps me understand the kinds of academic struggles kids are having in their classes. I especially appreciate the enthusiasm and professionalism with which the program is run here at the SU end and also at the school."
