This applies when one is learning the language of a certain career field (like nursing, for example).  It also applies when learning another language, like English.

Did you know that currently enrolled students can get TEAS tutoring online through our Live Tutoring platform?

TEAS tutoring offered through Live Tutoring can range from something as simple as helping students with their TEAS questions to something more structured through SkillSurfer/LEAP.  Students and tutors can follow a prescribed study plan that gets automatically generated by Brainfuse HelpNow after they take the TEAS practice test found on the SkillSurfer. Students or tutors can then post the practice questions on the whiteboard for a detailed review and students can replay the sessions later for another round of review.

Live Tutoring can be accessed through the Resources tab in your online courses.

 

Once you navigate to the online tutoring platform, select Live Tutoring.

 

Next, select Nursing from the Topic dropdown menu and choose TEAS from the Subject dropdown menu.

Be sure to click Tutoring Schedule to check to make sure a tutor is available.
