More About Brainfuse
ON-DEMAND, ONE-TO-ONE HOMEWORK HELP: Students draw or type their question in our online classroom and receive live homework assistance online from a Brainfuse-certified tutor (2 to 11 p.m.). Tutors are trained to not simply provide answers but to help students master the homework assignment’s underlying academic concepts.
SKILLS BUILDING: The Skills Building service helps students address academic needs that run deeper than homework help. With Skills Building, Brainfuse tutors help students master core academic skills through the same lessons developed for school-based programs.
COMPREHENSIVE WRITING ASSISTANCE: The writing service is unique in that Brainfuse does not merely proof or edit a student’s writing. Drawing from an experienced staff and research-based methodologies, Brainfuse offers students two high quality options:
- Live Writing Assistance: Patrons receive live writing assistance from Brainfuse tutors via our online classroom, which features intuitive copy/paste technology and secure file sharing. Live writing assistance is particularly helpful during the preparatory stages of the writing process when students need help organizing outlines and developing general themes.
- Premium Writing Lab: Our premium writing lab offers students an unmatched level of analysis. Patrons submit papers via our secure file sharing feature (no email address required) and our writing experts carefully analyze each paper with respect to voice, word choice, content, sentence fluency, and organization. Papers (complete with constructive comments) are returned to patrons within 24 hours.
FOREIGN LANGUAGE LAB: On-demand homework help and other resources for students who are taking a foreign language class. Spanish is currently supported with other languages to follow.
24/7 QUESTION CENTER: The 24/7 Question Center is ideal for patrons who require a detailed, extended explanation of a difficult concept. Library users simply submit their question and a tutor will respond usually within 24 hours.
ADULT LEARNING CENTER: The Adult Learning Center provides foundational, career-enhancing skills to job seekers. In addition, the Adult Learning Center offers test preparation (including the GED and the USCIS citizenship test), and a unique academic skills center featuring live, online tutors. Help is offered in resume and cover letting writing as well as MS Office skills.
TEST CENTER: The Test Center provides 24/7 access to an ever-expanding library of tests designed for elementary through adult learners. They include the ACT, SAT, state standardized tests, and more. After completing one of the online assessments, users receive a customized learning plan that suggests specific skills to review with a Brainfuse tutor.
FLASHBULB: Students enjoy 24/7 access to an extensive library of online flashcard sets in hundreds of subjects. Students can also create their own flashcards for efficient self-study.
MEET: Form study groups and meet online with the innovative classroom that features chat, drawing, and audio tools.
BRAINWAVE: Record a movie of your activity on the Brainfuse Notepad, archive it for note-taking purposes, or share it with others. Brainwave is ideal for recording solutions to math or science problems, class projects, or any other concepts that require motion, sequence, or animation.
