Blog—A Closer Look!

MyStudyBuddy.com

Children enjoy exploring the world around them. That is how they learn and grow. However, not all children learn at the same pace or in the same way. The five senses play an important role in how children take in information. 

  • Sight
  • Touch
  • Taste
  • Smell
  • Hearing

​When children play an active role in learning, their chances of retaining information are higher. 

A Solution to the Problem
MyStudyBuddy.com is a carefully formulated program that produces academic success by providing proven one-on-one study help.  

At a glance, we may appear to be just an online homework help service. But we do a lot more. Our program helps children take an active part in their studying by providing tools that give additional practice where extra help is needed and motivates children along the way. 

Our program contains topics that children are learning in class. The information is presented in an easy-to-understand way to make studying less stressful and more obtainable. 

We believe that if children have the necessary tools to help them study, they 
will have success in learning. For this reason, we offer in-depth tutorials that break through the barriers of confusion. Plus, our hands-on study tips help children stay focused. 
A Study Plan 
​Every goal for success begins with an organized plan. MyStudyBuddy.com provides that plan. 

We know that children's time after school is limited, whether it be with after-school activities, homework, family time, or personal time. 

That is why our Exam Help has a personalized study plan to promote organizational skills and help children get the most out of their study time.
How Most Children Learn
The Problem Many Children Face
Today, teachers incorporate more flexible teaching methods to create a less rigid learning environment. Classroom ratios are smaller, and children feel more at ease to participate and ask questions. The result is better academic performance.
 ​
​However, even in an ideal classroom setting, some children struggle to stay focused, follow instructions, or understand the material.

These children may shy away from asking for help for fear of being the center of attention or being teased by their peers. Such scenarios tend to create anxiety for children and force them to put up walls of defense, which block the help they are trying to receive. 

Eventually, these children fall behind or struggle to keep up.
