Brainfuse HelpNow

Beginning in  December the Library, Digital Services, began highlighting Brainfuse HelpNow. This is a fantastic resource provided to all of New Mexico through the State Library. The services provides students and adults of all ages with live online tutoring and homework help in English and Spanish from 2pm - 11pm, and includes 24/7 access to a comprehensive library of interactive tests, including academic skills assessments, standardized tests, and New Mexico-aligned tests. All residents actually have access to this and access the state most libraries promote the access, it really is a good thing out there for all

For some people it might be useful to know that All Brainfuse Certified Higher Education Tutors reside in the United States, possess a master’s degree or higher, have prior teaching or tutoring experience, and submit to background checks. All tutors undergo a rigorous selection and training process that includes background and reference checks, multiple screening interviews, skills testing, and extensive preparation - the tutoring is much more than just simple online help.
