Everyday is an adjective. The quoted sentences need an adjective and a noun. For example, "My friend's teacher gives a class every day."

"Every day" looks like an adjective and a noun to me. I see that the combination forms an adverbial though. :)

I don't like 'holds/gives classes/a class'.

I'd say 'gives lessons/a lessons'.

But don't you say he "holds a class" if youre the main teacher? Cause it is more then only giving lessons. But I could be wrong.

I am not a teacher.

I'm pretty sure juanitoh mixed up "then" and "than" in his last message.

My friend's teacher gives lessons to the students every day.

There is a site that gives online lessons to the students every day.

Both are correct and natural.

They're OK if you are talking about specific students. If you are talking about students in general, you should omit the definite article before "students".
