From gardening, accounting, automobile repair, or accademic curriculums, just sign up and speak with one of our representatives via phone to get approved to start posting classes!
Is my location displayed on the map to the Students?
Only if you choose to. If you choose to have your location displayed on the map from your profile settings, you will display as a blip on the map near your location but will not provide the location details to students. The only time a student will be able to obtain directions to your exact location is during one of your Uedify Hosted classes. From here, 24 hours before your class begins your Student will receive access to directions to your location set in your profie.
