We offer the following services to help with your homework and research needs.
This service helps students address academic needs that run deeper than homework help. With Skills Building, Brainfuse tutors help students master core academic skills through state-aligned lessons, covering various grade levels and academic topics. In addition to live help, the SkillSurfer learning library contains thousands of video lessons, quizzes, and tests to help students master academic concepts.
Live Homework Tutoring from Brainfuse
Live help from 3-11 PM and 24/7 access allow students to receive live, one-on-one assistance from tutors in English/Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Skills-building sessions are also available for students who have academic needs that extend beyond homework help. Tutoring is available in English and in Spanish.
Online Writing Assistance
Live Writing Assistance: Patrons receive live writing assistance from tutors in the Brainfuse online classroom. Premium Writing Lab: Students receive an unmatched level of analysis. Patrons submit papers via Brainfuse’s secure file sharing feature (no email address required) and writing experts carefully analyze each paper with respect to voice, word choice, content, sentence fluency, and organization.
