Brainfuse is a great resource to help learners of all ages build their skills in many different areas, get help from experts, and work collaboratively with other learners. You can use Brainfuse in the library, at home, or on the go; all you need is access to the internet! To get started, create a Brainfuse account by providing a user name, password, and a password hint.

Brainfuse has lots of options for people looking to learn! Learners of all ages can use their Brainfuse account to improve their reading, writing, and math skills, or even learn Spanish. Middle schoolers and high schoolers will find help for even more subjects, including science, social studies, and help in AP classes. Students will be able to connect with live tutors to get help in a variety of subjects or message their questions to an expert for a quick and reliable response.

Students who would like to improve their academic skills can use Brainfuse's LEAP Learning Platform to learn how to improve their study skills using diagnostic tests, customized study plans, lessons, and live tutoring.
