Study Buddy Learning is an online educational system created by educators committed to developing an effective and affordable program for students to achieve academic success at home.

Study Buddy Learning is a program of Higher Level Learning, a non-profit organization committed to students’ learning by developing effective and affordable educational programs.

Higher Level Learning, Inc. was created by a team of educators who believed they could make a bigger impact outside a student’s normal school day. The team individually created different educational programs that included tutoring programs, technology literacy programs, foreign language programs and more. Individually their programs demanded too much of their individual time and commitment. Higher Level Learning combined all these programs into a larger organization that shares the same mission while supporting each others staffing needs.
The organization helps these education visionaries manage the business day to day so they can focus on creating and improving our educational programs.

100% Of Study Buddy Learning’s profits are given back to our “Granting Knowledge Program” providing equity and accessibility to enrichment for families in need.

Who Is Study Buddy Learning?

Making Lemonade from Lemons

Being able to bring our Academic Diagnostic Test and Guided Online Lessons into students’ homes throughout the United States was an unintended outcome of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our Small Group Tutoring Program has been teaching and motivating students to learn since 2000. We’ve stood out from the competition because of our direct engagement with students in groups of no more than 1 teacher to 4 students. Important to our business was to also provide this invaluable service to the community for an affordable price unlike our competitors. Academic success in ALL students is our priority.
When “social distancing” and “shelter in place” became norms that our students had to follow, our learning centers had to close and our Small Group Tutoring Program was no longer able to offer it’s services to the community.
Our team of educators brainstormed on how our organization could continue to provide students quality educational services that were effective and improved students’ learning in a new age where meeting physically was not an option.
The result was the creation of MyStudyBuddy.org – personalized guided online lessons. We created a website where families can enroll in our comprehensive academic diagnostic test and guided online lessons personalized to the academic needs of their child. To support learning in a blended environment of technology and direct teacher instruction, we offer families the option to meet with our teachers online. To stay impactful while maintaining affordability, online sessions with our teachers can be as little as 10 minutes. We will review trouble areas as identified by our educational software and reinforce new concepts taught by our engaging online lessons. As a member of Study Buddy Learning, you will see how our team is your child’s academic advocate and cheerleader.
We are proud of our team’s ability to adapt to the situation presented to them and as a result, they can now impact a much larger community. For about $30 per month, we maintain our mission of making our educational system financially accessible. Enroll in Study Buddy Learning’s proven system of learning and let us help your child achieve academic success. See you online.

How Often Does My Child Need To Login To Work On Lessons?

We recommend students work on lessons for 45 minutes per week per subject. So for Math and Reading, expect your child to spend at least 1 1/2 hours on lessons per week.

What Happens If My Child Does Not Understand The Lesson Or They Click Through The Lesson?

Our teachers will monitor student’s lesson reports and if an area of needed review arises, the teacher will get in touch with you to see if you’d like to schedule a remote, live online review session for your child and the teacher.
Teacher check-ins can last as short as 10 minutes or longer if needed. We recommend parents preschedule a weekly 10 minute check-in with the student and teacher for support, reinforcement and encouragement to continue reaching student’s academic goals.
