Brainfuse HelpNow

brain fuse: ignite your mind

Your library now has Brainfuse HelpNow, a powerful suite of eLearning tools (including online tutoring) for all ages and levels. Use your Franklin Park library card number to login and create an account.

Online Tutoring

Tutors are available online every day from 2PM – 11PM, and the service includes a Spanish-speaking tutor option. Kindergarten through college level education is supported through this tutoring service. (Tutors are highly trained and over 80% have a Master’s degree or PhD. in their field.)

Students will find personalized homework help in core subjects (math, reading, writing, science and social studies) including SAT preparation. HelpNow also offers skills building and test preparation where after taking a quiz, you can connect directly to a live tutor to review the topics and questions covered in the quiz.

The Writing Lab and the Send Question Center options give you the freedom to receive assistance at any time of the day. Submit papers through the Writing Lab for detailed feedback. The Send Question Center is for non-writing assignments such as math or science. If you prefer to work independently and form your own online study group, HelpNow offers a set of collaborative tools – Meet and Brainwave.
