Brainfuse provides live, online homework help Monday through Friday and skills building, writing, GED and citizenship help 24 hours a day, every day of the year. It is accessible from any of the library’s computers or remotely through the library’s web site.
Help for students preparing for standardized tests including SATs and ACTs is also offered through Brainfuse. Writing assistance includes reviewing papers, outline organization and general theme development.
Brainfuse also features a language lab and an adult learning center that offers career-enhancing skills to job-seekers. Help is available in Spanish, too.
In its first year, more than 1,000 tutoring sessions were completed by PPL cardholders, with the most popular subjects being biology, chemistry and 6th-grade math.
