Student User: Frequently Asked Questions
What is Uedify and how can I use it?
Uedify ( you edify ) is a mobile marketplace of freelance tutors that want to teach their wisdom in endless subjects. Student users can search locally or globally for live classes taught in-person or remotely by their peers. No more need to pause a video on a streaming site while you try to work on your car, instead you can find an automobile mechanic near you to arrive on-site and teach you about your vehicle while fixing it, or find the town’s best guitar player teaching group music classes every weekend!
