eduFire is a California-based Web 2.0 startup company focused on language exchange and training. It was originally promoted as a language learning engine. However, as it has grown, it has also expanded to offer preparation for tests such as the ACT, SAT, and GRE, as well as topics such as computer technology training.
Anyone may sign up to become a tutor, and a reputation and rating system is used. eduFire is technically free, but teachers are encouraged to charge for their classes, as the company derives revenue from a 15% fee from hourly sessions paid by users. eduFire is currently active and offering individual one to one (1:1) and one to many (1:M) classes. The eduFire platform is based on Adobe Acrobat Connect software.
