Free Tutoring Now Available

Beginning today, families with students in kindergarten through 12th grade and an NYPL library card can access tips, activities, and one-on-one tutors through a new partnership with Brainfuse. Tutors are available from 2 PM to 11 PM every day in both English and Spanish. Students can also make use of Brainfuse’s videos, activities, and other learning resources 24/7.
The New York Public Library is pleased to offer online tutoring to provide families with homework help, enrichment activities, and remote learning support through our partnership with Brainfuse. This partnership is just one of the many ways the Library is expanding its digital resources to New York City families during our temporary closure to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Through Brainfuse, kids and teens in grades K–12 can now access free, remote, one-on-one tutoring in a wide range of subjects and levels—from first-grade math to advanced algebra. Tutoring is offered seven days a week from 2 PM to 11 PM via chat. Services are available in both English and Spanish. Brainfuse also offers a bank of videos, activities, a writing lab, and other resources that are available to students 24/7.

Families can access these tools with an NYPL library card. If you or a family member don’t have a library card, sign up for one using our SimplyE app.

As New York City schools increasingly turn to digital learning in response to the spread of COVID-19, we hope our expanding digital resources can help support teachers and families during this challenging moment. Our goal is to support a culture of learning, whether that’s in the classroom or in the living room.
