Your work has a significant impact on so many students/job seekers

Featured review

Brainfuse selected this as a representative review
Brainfuse always has an eye towards the future and ways to improve. There is definitely a collaborative tone to the company and knowing that your voice is being heard is tremendous. At times, there is a lot expected of you, while you're also provided opportunities to take ownership of your responsibilities. Perhaps the most significant positive that you come across frequently is the impact our work has on students of all ages.


Collaborative atmosphere, ownership of responsibilities, you're helping students/job seekers of all ages


Streamlining certain tasks would be ideal

Great company to work for!

I really enjoyed working for Brainfuse. Students were great and the pay was fair for what was expected. The only negative is a lack of communication. We were told we could return in September and now it is the middle of November with no information as to when we can work for them again.

Needs Improvement

There is no security or direction. Management will leave you lost. You will not know if you have a job or not. If they decide that they do not need you, then they will not contact you. You may think that you still have a job and you do not. You are ghosted. There is no communication. I have tried to get assistance during times when I was tutoring, but no one helped me. You are truly on your own. If you want security, do not waste your time working for this company. You may be here today and gone tomorrow. The sad part is that you may not even know it.




No job security, no certainty, no support

No responses from company

All of the negatives stated in other reviews are accurate. The main ones are that you do not get responses back to your emails. If they email you and you respond you still won’t get a response. No work in Summer which is expected. There are no guidelines, but there are rules and expectations. Students write complaints about you whether you helped them too little or too much. Some students want you to do everything for them or will tell you to do it for them, including read books, and chapters for them. You will also get students who argue and tell you they are right and their work is right, or if you tell them everything they have is good or mostly good they want to be told it is wrong and has mistakes and needs specific changes. Whichever student you get, they will put a fake smile on and say thank you for your help, you’re amazing, have a nice evening. Then end the session and write a complaint.


Paid waiting, remote


Bad management, bad anonymous students

It was good at first, making close to 800 each pay but they don't tell you it's only for a season. Between the months of December and August you have to fight tooth and nail to make 100 and in the summer there's nothing, forcing you to find work elsewhere. If you'd like extra money to make in the fall it's a great way as there are always tasks flooding in but any other season it's not worth the stress.


Extra side income


Inconsistent and unreliable

Not enough, and terrible communication

Let me start by saying this job is perfect for someone like me. I’m a stay at home mom, with only a little time here and there to commit to working. I love being a writing tutor because I love writing and working with students. However, it is not consistent work. The pay is not the greatest. I find that I have to keep my laptop open, and be constantly refreshing the website to catch assignments before other tutors. Much of the year you have to fight others just to get a hundred dollar paycheck I’ve been a writing tutor for 3 years now and things have gone downhill since I started. The communication between myself and the management team, is terrible. I’ve been attempting to email them with an issue for over two weeks Nd they have yet to respond. It’s very disappointing.


Make your own schedule

Very good with Ghosting employees

They instructed tutors to email their inbox for support, but during my work with Brainfuse, there was nearly no reply from them. Poor communication, unprofessional manners of working from Brainfuse.




Don't work with these people

Great way to do what you love as a teacher and have family time as well.

What is the best part of working at the company?Remote teaching position so you can be anywhere as long as internet works well. You choose to work full or part time. Lessons are prepared for you. Great students. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?No stress so far. Sometimes intervals between students are short so you do not know what lesson is ahead but lessons are self explanatory so it’s easy to teach.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?You have help when needed but since it’s remote platform. You have to manage your time and knowledge of your subjects and teaching methods.What is a typical day like for you at the company?I log on to teach and have time to do other things when you have a break.

Terrible Communication

I have no idea whether or not I am still an employee at Brainfuse. I have great reviews and was honest about the amount of time I spent reviewing essays, but all of a sudden I stopped getting assignments (live tutoring or through the writing lab). I emailed every number I could find to see what was going on and have been ghosted by the whole company. They have enough tutors where they do not really care at all about each employee so its a good gig while you have it but the lack of communication makes it a horrible place to work.

It is good but management needs to communicate better and more often with their tutors. I can't complain. They have given me a good amount of on-call hours.
Was this review helpful?


Management only made initial contact if there was an issue. I had to ask for help. There wasn't enough resources to help tutors improve themselves. However, it can be beneficial to help students. It may be worth trying the role if you are able to comment on student papers fairly quickly.

Scamming Company

This company does not provide real opportunities for employees. Job security is not well with company so do not depend on it. They use your personal information and sell it. I do not recommend even applying to this company save your time and energy.

It was fine

The job was fine. Busy at times but most of the students I interacted with were patient, so it worked out well. The pay wasn't the best but that's how it is for most tutoring positions.

Flexible but no security

While the job is flexible and you can choose which student papers to review, there is no job security at all. Even if you follow every guideline the company provides, but a student complains that you did not correct every single error in their paper (which is not allowed), you will receive a warning that you might not be allowed to continue as a tutor. There is no communication, and the pay is minimal in comparison to the work required.

Solid part-time remote work

The work is steady for 9 months out of the year and is a good option for supplemental income. Procedures are straightforward and getting started was easy.

Minimum Wage Work From Home Job

If you really need a job and have a skill to tutor others but accept low compensation; helps pay the bills and you make your own schedule around available time slots. Overall worth it for experience, but no promotions or feedback on your performance.
