Online Tutoring through Brainfuse:
Brainfuse is available through Blackboard and provides students with live tutoring, expert writing assistance, and more. Tutors and students communicate in real-time through the Brainfuse Online Classroom. There is a 24/7 Question Center for students who need a detailed, structured explanation of key concepts or help with an assignment. Students simply submit their questions and receive feedback from the Brainfuse-certified instructor. Instructors must make this tool available by adding the Course Tool to their Blackboard course so that students can then access Brainfuse (see demo provided by Sandra Lilly).
Become a Tutor
The Educational Counselors in the Student Success Centers are eager to talk with interested people and students about how to become a tutor. Professional tutors are generally adjunct faculty or others who hold either a Bachelor or Master’s degree in the area they wish to tutor. If you are interested in becoming a paid, professional tutor, please contact an Educational Counselor in the Student Success Center. Student Peer Tutors are volunteer students who have demonstrated a mastery of the course content they will tutor. An instructor must recommend you for the position based on your performance in their class. Peer tutors will have earned an overall college grade point average of at least a 3.0 and a 3.0 in the subject they wish to tutor. All interested volunteers are encouraged to contact the Educational Counselor on your campus.
