Brainfuse HelpNow

On-Demand, Anywhere Online Learning

HelpNow is a comprehensive learning suite, consisting of tutoring, collaboration, and study tools on your computer or mobile device.  Live homework help for grades K-12 is available from 2pm-11pm daily with professional tutors.

HelpNow provides differentiated learning solutions for students of diverse needs and backgrounds. Students communicate with live, online tutors using an interactive, virtual whiteboard to chat, write, draw, copy/paste text or images and graph homework problems. HelpNow also offers skills building and test preparation where after taking a quiz, the user can then connect directly to a live tutor to review the topics and questions covered in the quiz.

Both the student and the tutor can view the quiz questions and the corresponding student answers for an intensive test prep which may include loading lessons onto the whiteboard. All live tutoring sessions are saved and can be replayed as well as shared with friends and teachers.

The Writing Lab and the Send Question Center options give users 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 our tutors are found and stored in the Message Center, which is found on the student homepage. For students 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.

You’ll need create an account on the Brainfuse website before you can log into the mobile app.
