Homework Help

In December, over 4,000 Las Vegas students got help with their homework with our FREE online Homework Helpservice with real tutors.  But how successful was it? Just read below what the students had to say.  Homework Help is available every day from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. Have you tried our Homework Help service yet?


had a great tutor who dedicated almost 90 minutes, one of the best ive had
It is a wonderful tool to help with hw!
Thank you for your help
My tutor drew out the problem in a way that made more sense that what I learned in school. Glad I got on because it makes sense now
Thank you very much and please keep this program going for ever. -Sincerely, User of this service
The tutor I had was amazing helped me and was also patient.
Thank you very much it is my first time using this and it was very helpful .The person i spoke to was very kind ..THANKYOU HOMEWORK HOTLINE
The person whom I was talking with (assigned the username DHP03) was very generous in offering help, despite the length of the homework. This was my first time using Brainfuse, and I am very pleased with the immediate results!
After using Brain fuse i enjoyed my session!! I was satisfied with the outcome, i received biology help and got back exactly what i wanted!! There should be more tutors like the one that helped me in this session called “@Amy” this tutor knows what they are talking about I now understand all about DNA Sequence. Thanks Brain fuse a big thumbs up!!
It was weird because I got connected with someone, but they just left. I got this person named Kirill (not sure on the spelling). They gave me the help i needed and I understand the concept better!
Thank you.
Great website :D.
very good help!!
My friends and I are getting amazing help!So grateful for this.
I would hope this will be avaliable during the weekends as well.
My math grade is really improving!
Thank you so much.
