Live Tutoring- Are you struggling in science, having difficulty in geography, or need help with a math problem? Brainfuse is here to help. Professional live tutors are available seven days a week from 2 to 11 p.m., from the convenience of your home, or wherever you have online access. 

Writing Lab- Do you need advice on a writing assignment? Are you unsure about writing your first research paper? With the Brainfuse Writing Lab, you can upload your document and receive feedback on your writing. Just be sure you submit several days in advance in order to give a day to get a response and time to revise your paper as needed.

Skill Surfer- Writing a persuasive essay? Studying for semester exams? Need help understanding inferences? Are you preparing for the CRT’s? Do you need a refresher on angle measures in polygons? Skill Surfer allows you to select lessons or practice tests to help you succeed!

Summer Camp- You already use Brainfuse during the school year to chat with subject-specialist tutors who can help with tricky homework concepts, but now Brainfuse offers an online Summer Skills Camp! Students in grades 3-12 have the opportunity to stay engaged over the summer through live tutoring, mini lessons, and activities in Math, Science, and Writing. These exercises will help children keep their skills sharp so that they are ready to learn new concepts (instead of rehashing last year’s lessons) when the school year begins.
