is a ' Study Buddy'?
American schools often use a 'buddy system' in the elementary grades.
Two children cross the street together, sit together at lunch, help each
other at their lessons, and play together on the playground. This
is a good way to keep the children safe and organized.
Older students in higher grades have study partners, or 'lab partners'.
They work together on assignments, laboratory projects, and share ideas.
Most schools also provide tutors for students who need extra help.
The tutor may be an older student or a teacher who explains the schoolwork
and helps the student find the correct answers.
Study Buddies will be two VV members, of similar experience
level, who will help each other with the homework, and have fun sharing
their AV growing experiences.
An AV Mentor will be assigned to a
member of less experience, who has asked for help. The mentor will
answer any questions, and in general, also share the experience of growing
Buddy assignments are for the length of the AV School only, unless the
individuals wish to continue their friendships. No Buddy assignments
are final. We will do our best to match up members who will enjoy the experience.
If you ask for a different Buddy, we may be able to find another.
