Brainfuse Help Now, an on-demand, anytime, anywhere, eLearning program, is the latest addition to our online learning services. Brainfuse Help Now offers BCLS cardholders of all ages and levels free access to live, online tutoring, career help, and other skill-building resources. 

Brainfuse offers real-time help from thousands of certified tutors across the country. Its Help Now feature provides students live tutoring in various subjects such as math, science, reading/writing, and social studies. Real-time help is also available for adults via the Adult Learning Center, which offers live guidance on various subjects at basic, intermediate, and advanced levels, tips on using software like Microsoft Office, and GED test help. Career Resources connects users with powerful tools for career building and professional growth such as resume and cover letter writing guidance and review.

The Writing Lab and the Send Question Center options give students the freedom to receive assistance at any time of the day without connecting with a live tutor. Users can submit papers through the Writing Lab for detailed feedback. The Send Question Center is for non-writing assignments such as math or science. All reviews and comments from Brainfuse tutors are found and stored in the Message Center, which is found on the student homepage. For learners who prefer to work independently and form their own online study group, HelpNow offers a set of collaborative tools –Meet and Brainwave. Meet allows students to schedule their own online sessions using the Brainfuse Meet whiteboard, which is specifically designed for a group setting. Brainwave is a recordable whiteboard where students can draw, write, and chat and send it to others for feedback.

Brainfuse’s SkillSurfer offers self-study resources including practice tests (PSAT/SAT, ACT, AP, and GED), articles, practice sheets, and videos. The Language Lab provides tutors for learning either French or Spanish. Brainfuse provides many ways to learn, including electronic flashcards that can be turned into different games and the option to set up virtual study groups.
