News : Governor Susana Martinez Announces Online Homework Helpline
New Mexico, USA, Aug 14, 2015 -- With New Mexico’s students heading back to school, Governor Susana Martinez announced Monday an online tutoring service to help them succeed in the classroom. Students can access the service – called Brainfuse – with the click of a mouse, allowing them to connect with tutors in real-time.
"I believe that every child can learn, and I am committed to giving them the tools they need to help them succeed," Governor Martinez said. "With this online service, our kids can work one-on-one with professional tutors when they need help with their homework. This ensures that they continue to get the help they need even when they are away from the classroom."
The Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA), through the State Library, provides free statewide access to Brainfuse at public libraries, K-12 schools, colleges and universities, or even at home via this link. The program specializes in one-on-one tutoring, building study skills, and career assistance through its HelpNow service. All tutors have a four-year college degree and go through a rigorous selection and training process. Additionally, Spanish-speaking tutors are available. One-on-one tutoring is offered between 2 to 11 p.m. seven days a week.
In addition, the Governor also announced a program that allows New Mexico’s families to check out state museum passes from their local library.
"These are wonderful resources that help our families and kids learn and grow," said DCA Cabinet Secretary Veronica Gonzales. "I’m grateful to Governor Martinez for her leadership in developing tools and resources that help New Mexicans experience more of our state’s history and culture while further reinforcing the skills and knowledge our kids are learning in school."
