My experience with study buddies has helped me understand each students individual needs and that no one is the same especially when it comes to education. An experience that I had with an individual student was one who had a very hard time understanding English fluently. I helped them read through a book word by word and every once in a while we would stop to talk about whats happening in Spanish to make sure that they understood the reading. It was a cool experience to have. It was fun to see them start very shy and timid but then progressing to engage and even laugh along with the book as we continued reading.
