Monta Vista Students Launch Meetup Study Buddy, a Free Peer-To-Peer Tutoring Service to Help Students Affected by School Closures Due to Corona Virus
Two Monta Vista High School Students (Cupertino, California) are starting a tutoring service to help high school students as they adapt to a life of closed schools or online learning, through an APP, Meetup Study Buddy as well as a website. Meetup Study Buddy, founded by Annabelle Seungah Choi ’21 and Madeline Myungsuh Choi ’22, matches selected high school students to students for thirty minutes to one-hour private or group tutoring sessions via Zoom. Annabelle came up with the idea after she got an email from a classmate who needed help. Since school is closed, students can’t ask teachers for help as they normally would.
“So many students were suddenly lost and uncertain,” Seungah said. “And many schools haven’t even made their online courses official curriculum, but rather just ‘enrichment’ — simply, it’s not enough. There’s a real pressing need for a supplement.” Seungah Choi thought that schools shutting down or transitioning to remote learning might be especially difficult for high schoolers who are starting the college application process and planning to take AP tests. “I would have loved some platform for learning when I was thirsty for help,” Seunga says.
At the beginning of March, Seungah and Myungsuh sent out emails to gauge student interest and areas of expertise. There were more than 100 responses, and respondents were added to a Google doc to coordinate the interview and selection process.
