Have you ever been stuck on a homework assignment, and wish you had a tutor who could help you understand the material? Now you can, thanks to the Troy Public Library
The Library now offers Brainfuse, a live homework help service. Students in 3rd through 12th grades can connect one-on-one to a trained tutor for assistance in math, science, English, and social studies. Tutors are available 7 days a week, from 2 pm-11 pm.
Using Brainfuse is easy. First, go here to download and install the Quick Connect software on your home computer.
After installation, access Brainfuse by clicking on the "Information On-Demand-All Day, Every Day" link in the middle of the Library's homepage. Click Online Tutoring from the subject list then click Brainfuse. A "virtual" whiteboard will appear, allowing you to chat with your tutor, or to draw diagrams, follow examples, and more.
Brainfuse also features a 24-hour writing lab, where you can submit their papers and get feedback about their assignments.
Please let us know about your experiences with Brainfuse!
