Brainfuse is a 24/7 online tutoring resource that is free for Marymount students to use. It’s a great option for cases in which there are no peer tutoring or writing consultation appointments available on TutorTrac for the day/time you need.

To get to Brainfuse, log on to Canvas, open up any of your course pages, and look for “Brainfuse” in the left-hand menu of links for that course.
