Tutoring online: anytime, anywhere
Available 24/7 from any computer, online tutoring fits into your schedule when you're ready for help, wherever you are. SCC provides free online tutoring through Brainfuse, up to 6 hours per student, per semester. Please use your time effectively and be prepared with your questions before you connect to a tutor.
Online tutoring is available to students currently enrolled in an online or hybrid course at SCC. For help with in-person classes, please visit our Tutoring & Learning Centers.
Live Help: Enjoy live, on-demand 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 sessions are recorded for you to review later.
Writing Lab: Submit papers for any class to Writing Lab along with your questions, and a tutor will respond within 24 hours.

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.
