Making the Most of Your Online Tutoring Experience

To make the most of your online tutoring experience, remember that Brainfuse is not a homework answering service. Please do not use Brainfuse like Google to look up answers or ask Brainfuse tutors to do your research, work, or specific assignments for you. Tutors will not give answers or edit papers but will provide feedback to help you to improve your skills. Be prepared to provide your tutor with information about your assignment and to dialogue through this process together.

Statement of Academic Integrity

Students may use Brainfuse only for the Scottsdale Community College courses in which they are currently enrolled. The use of Brainfuse for coursework from other institutions is strictly prohibited and subject to the college's policies and procedures regarding the acceptable use of student support resources. Brainfuse tutoring sessions are recorded and reviewed by college personnel on a regular basis.
