Brainfuse Live Homework Tutoring
Live help from 2-11 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.

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.
More than 1800 video tutorials for math, science, history, finance, and test preparation. The content is presented in 10-20 minute chunks especially designed for viewing on the computer, as opposed to longer videos presenting a conventional lecture.
