    Greetings Thomas Nelson Community,

    Our on-campus tutors (Math, Writing, and Peer Tutoring) are available 7 days a week for online tutoring appointments. You can schedule online tutoring appointments by signing in to MyTNCC and clicking the Brainfuse icon. Select your subject area and course under "Tutor Match", then choose your tutor and a time slot that works for you. When it's time for your appointment, enter the session by going to "My Calendar" in Brainfuse. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

    All the best,
