For students of all ages, the Free Library is source-number-one for information; that almost goes without saying. Though sometimes, when you’re struggling with a tough problem or trying to work your way through a tricky writing assignment, you need a little more help than a book or electronic database offers. In moments like these, our Homework Help Online service is a lifesaver. Every day, from 2:00 – 11:00 p.m. we have trained tutors standing by to help students from grade 2 all the way up to adult learners with their studies. Full tutoring services are available in both English and Spanish. We provide this service in partnership with a company called Brainfuse. Brainfuse hires and trains U.S.-based adults, each with a bachelor’s degree and prior teaching experience, to connect with students one-on-one. Parents can rest assured as well, because all of Brainfuse’s tutors have undergone a background and reference check, and are trained to teach, not simply give answers.
While the popular, live, one-on-one tutoring service is the heart of our Homework Help, Brainfuse offers a number of other excellent features that you may not be aware of. For example, the Writing Lab allows you to upload your research paper or essay and get tips on how to make it your very best. Both live tutoring and the writing lab features are also available to adult learners, along with GED and U.S. citizenship test prep, resources to help you learn Microsoft Office software, and help writing your résumé. And regardless of your age, if the 2:00 – 11:00 p.m. timeframe for live tutoring doesn’t work for you, submit your question anytime in the 24/7 Center and get a response within one business day. In fact, many of the resources you will find on Brainfuse are available at any time. Take a look at the huge collection of study guides in every major subject for every grade, as well as comprehensive sets of flash cards and plenty of practice tests (including the SAT and ACT). Don’t miss the Brainfuse MEET feature that allows you to set up online group study sessions with friends and classmates in the Brainfuse virtual classroom. Also, take a look at the amazing Brainwave feature. With Brainwave, students can create and share movies of their activities on the Brainfuse whiteboard—perfect for illustrating a math problem’s many steps or the moving pieces of a big class project.
