brainfuseThe Butler Public Library Can Help Students with the “COVID Slide”
Studies show that nearly all students have been effected by the “COVID slide”. Get back on track with Brainfuse HelpNow to access free online tutoring lessons, videos, and games.
Students in grades 3-12 have the opportunity to stay engaged over the summer through live tutoring, mini lessons, and activities in Math, Science, and Writing. These exercises will help your children keep their skills sharp so that they are ready to learn new concepts (instead of rehashing last year’s lessons) when the school year begins.
You can use Brainfuse HelpNow by clicking the link on the “B” section of the Butler Public Library website.
Brainfuse HelpNow is provided to the Library by the New Jersey State Library
