Utilizing the online resource Brainfuse offers PLNU students live, on-demand homework help from Brainfuse-certified tutors in a variety of college subjects. Tutors and students communicate in real-time through the Brainfuse Online Classroom. Whatever you type, draw, or share on the screen, the tutor sees, and vice versa. All your tutoring sessions are recorded for later review. Beginning the second week of the fall 2021 semester PLNU students will be able to additionally access PLNU student tutors for PLNU courses offered.  Students in need of help simply fill out this form to obtain access to Brainfuse (Please note it can be a minimum of 48 hours before you get access to Brainfuse so please plan ahead!)
