Do you fondly remember a time when you could call a tutor up on the telephone to gain assistance with your homework? Well, those good times are back, only better, via your computer!
We are please to announce that the State Library of Iowa has funded Brainfuse’s HelpNow service so that it is available to Iowa libraries.
HelpNow is intended for students, kindergarten through college-aged. It provides access to live tutors from 2:00-11:00 p.m., seven days a week. (Excepting some holidays.) Elementary-aged student have access to math and reading assistance. High School-aged students have access to math, language arts, science, social studies, and history. For example, if you’re having difficulties with an algebra problem, you can connect with a live tutor who will walk you through the calculations.
In addition to English, tutoring sessions are available in Spanish, French, and Canadian English. Just select your preferred language from the top, right corner.
But there is more than just live tutoring. HelpNow’s SkillSurfer section offers a host of study topics. Ranging from Lower Elementary School up through Adult Learner Resources, SkillSurfer is available to you 24/7. Under the Computers and Technology heading you will find info on using Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. The College Entrance Test Prep section includes PSAT, SAT, ACT, AP, TOEFL, TEAS (nursing) and more! ASVAB has its own section. CollegeNOW even walks a candidate through the college application process.
Have a paper to turn in? There’s a Writing Lab where you can submit your paper for review before turning it in to your teacher. The turnaround time for feedback is 12-24 hours.
