Free Virtual Tutoring from the Library

The Bergenfield Public Library is excited to announce the launch of Brainfuse – on demand, anytime, anywhere eLearning for all ages and levels. Brainfuse offers personalized homework help in core subjects (math, reading, writing, science and social studies) including SAT preparation. Students communicate with live, online tutors using an interactive, virtual whiteboard to chat, write, draw, copy/paste text or images and graph homework problems. All live tutoring sessions are saved and can be replayed as well as shared with friends and teachers. 

 

Brainfuse is available to all library patrons from the public computers or from any computer with internet connection from 2pm-11pm 7 days a week.

 

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.

 

For adult learners, Brainfuse provides access to GED prep, U.S citizenship test prep, resume assistance, Microsoft Office support, and Career Resources which lists popular job search links. Microsoft Office support allows patrons to ask questions about Excel, Word and PowerPoint.

 

To use Brainfuse, all you need is your Bergenfield library card number. There is no limit to the number of tutoring sessions you can have. Spanish-speaking tutors are available for all subjects as well.
