Here are some other resources you can use, too!

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 Select a School dropdown menu and choose TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills) from the Enter Subject dropdown menu.



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


Once you verify a tutor is available, navigate back one page and click Connect.


When you click get Live Help, you will see a prompt advising you to wait for your tutor.


You will be able to work with the tutor using the whiteboard.  You can chat, draw, email, and more!
