Edit** I made this a little rushed and realized I forgot to actually put the word in the sentence. It's fixed now

Could you explain the other words too? What is "o suru tameni"? And what's the "ni" particle for?

'o suru' is essentially just 'do ____', in this case the blank being 'benkyou', which means 'study'. 'tame ni' essentially means 'for the purpose of'', and I can't say with confidence why the 'ni' is there.
