Edlyft from the eyes of our students

Kenneth Martinez
UCB | CS70

"Without Edlyft, I truly believe I may not have done so well in my CS courses at UCB." "Edlyft has been there for me through thick and thin. From helping me in my academics to introducing me to industry professionals. My path in computer science fields has been made only brighter because of Edlyft."


“Edlyft has helped me do better in my CSE30 course by having so much support available at almost all times of the day. The tutors truly care about your success and know the concepts extremely well, and if they do not know something, they take the time to learn it in order to help you.”

Daniel Jaffe

"Edlyft gave me that little something extra that has allowed difficult concepts to both click and stick"

Rohullah Najibi

"I give special thanks to Milan; my mentor for helping and supporting me get through this semester and get the grade I wanted and needed."
