On-Demand Online Tutoring for All Learners and Job Seekers
Baker County Library District has launched two new online services, both from Brainfuse: HelpNow and JobNow. Both services offer vetted, professional, live tutoring for either education or vocation, and both services are available free of charge to library patrons.
These resources are available thanks to a generous grant from the State Library of Oregon and coordination by Libraries of Eastern Oregon.
HelpNow is an educational resource for students of varying ages—including adult learners seeking to advance their education. The service includes skills tests, college prep and multiple live tutoring options, as well as a writing lab and a portal to submit detailed questions for reference help.
Some of these tools include practice tests for the GED, the ACT and SAT, the ASVAB and other professional entrance exams, English as a Second Language and many more.
The other new service, JobNow, offers similar live help for job seekers or people looking to improve their career skills.
The service includes live Interview training from professional interview coaches, live resume review and the ability to submit resumes and cover letters for more in-depth review. It also incorporates content and methods from the popular “What Color is Your Parachute?” series; eParachute helps users discover college majors and careers to match their skills and interests.
The two services share a similar platform and have similar functionality, so it is easy to move back and forth between them.
Both of these new services, and more premium content, can be found via the library website on the Online Library list of resources, https://bakerlib.specialdistrict.org/online-library . Access requires a library card number from Baker County Library District.
