Free Online Tutoring Offered by Martha’s Vineyard Libraries
In an effort to assist parents and students with the challenges of this unusual school year, The Martha’s Vineyard Library Association has partnered with Brainfuse, a national online education company, to provide free online tutoring and homework help to all Martha’s Vineyard library cardholders. The program is available seven days a week to anyone with a library card issued by any of the six Martha’s Vineyard libraries. Access to Brainfuse has been made possible by a generous grant from the Martha’s Vineyard Bank Charitable Foundation.
Brainfuse is an online learning platform that provides real-time tutoring and homework assistance in core subjects (math, reading, writing, science and social studies), test preparation, and other learning tools. Brainfuse provides support for learners of all ages, with an emphasis on assisting students in K-12 subjects. All tutors have at least three years of teaching experience and a bachelor’s degree, and over 80% of tutors have a Master’s degree or a Ph.D.in their field. Online homework help, writing assistance, and collaboration tools available 24 hours a day, with live tutoring available from 2 pm to 11 pm. All live tutoring sessions are saved and can be replayed as well as shared with teachers.
In addition to school-age resources, Brainfuse’s Adult Learning Center provides adult learners with access to GED preparation, U.S citizenship test preparation, resume assistance, Microsoft Office support, and career resources. Microsoft Office support allows patrons to ask questions about Excel, Word and PowerPoint. A writing lab, question center and the skills building resources are also included in the Adult Learning Center. Library cardholders can access Brainfuse by visiting their local library website.
