New! Free Online Tutoring and More with Brainfuse

East Central Regional Library cardholders now have access to on-demand virtual tutoring, writing assistance, career and interview coaching, and more with two new services created by Brainfuse: HelpNow and JobNow.
Both services offer live help daily, from 2 to 11 PM.  Video content, test prep, homework tools, and additional skill building and career-enhancing resources are available 24 hours a day.

Brainfuse HelpNow provides on-demand one-to-one homework help

Help Now
HelpNow is an innovative platform that connects students to live tutors.  Here’s how it works. Patrons and tutors meet in the Brainfuse Online Classroom where tutors guide students through homework challenges and help them to develop the necessary skills to complete assignments on their own. Writing tutors can help patrons become better writers through live chat and real-time document sharing. When live help is not available, users may email questions for a next day response.  Additionally, documents such as research papers may be submitted for review and feedback and that feedback will be returned within 24 hours.
The HelpNow Adult Learning Center provides GED content, U.S. citizenship prep, MS Office Essential Skills help, assistance in resume/cover letter writing, and more. Older students will also find study materials and practice tests for a wide range of tests including (but not limited to) the ACT, SAT, GED, ASVAB, GRE or TOEFL.
