Comprehensive Academic Support
Years of research, millions of tutoring sessions, and vast feedback from students, faculty, and administrators have shaped our HelpNow Support Suite. Our unique combination of mutually reinforcing, fully customizable services provides the tools you need to help your students succeed.
Research-based writing lab practices
Brainfuse writing lab tutors use proven methods to assist users throughout the writing process, from inception to final draft. Brainfuse tutors work with students to revise critically, develop sensitivity to one’s audience, and ultimately become better writers.
Dynamic group facilitation

Say Goodbye to Cumbersome Whiteboards
Techies didn’t design our whiteboard. We spent thousands of hours observing and listening to students. The result is a whiteboard that contains the features that students need most, and that is so simple and intuitive that students can use it right away, without training. After all, a student should never need tutoring to learn how to use a tutoring whiteboard.
Finally, a whiteboard that’s pencil and paper friendly.
“I love how I can just work through problems with pencil and paper and share it with my tutor. It’s magical.”
– Community College Student
So many math and science problems are best explored with pencil and paper. Anyone who has tried to do long division or solve an algebra problem with a keyboard understands this. So why would we make a tutoring whiteboard that prioritizes screen and keyboard features? Our proprietary Snap-n-Send function allows students to share and interact with handwritten or printed material in our online classroom in real-time.
