Ignite Your Mind and Your Career with Brainfuse

Brainfuse has a variety of useful resources for every age and learning level including homework help, study tools and practice tests, college or career path counseling, resume and interview assistance and more!

Our new Brainfuse online resource includes three unique services, Help Now, Job Now and Vet Now. Wondering how they can help you? Let’s explore these resources together…

Help Now

Are you ready to ignite your mind with a personalized learning experience including online tutoring with a live tutoring professional, study tools, practice tests and more? Whether you’re looking for a resource for your elementary-age student or you’re a lifelong learner looking for a reliable study aid, Brainfuse has something for you.

Help Now includes live tutoring with vetted tutors. When a user enters an online live tutoring session, they will be taken to the virtual whiteboard where they can doodle their ideas and concepts to discuss with the tutor, type messages back and forth with their tutor and upload documents to share with their tutor. After a session is complete it is saved to the user’s account, so they can access the information for future study. Help Now live tutoring sessions are available from 2 p.m. to 11 p.m. everyday.

Any grade level student can submit their writing for review by an expert using Help Now’s Writing Lab feature. Writing is reviewed within 24 hours and feedback is available in the message center.

Want to meet with your peers for a collaborative study or brainstorm session? Help Now offers virtual study sessions! By using the “Meet” option in HelpNow, users can schedule a virtual study session with their friends and use the virtual whiteboard to exchange messages, share documents and more.
