Who We Are


SCROLL DOWN

Who We Are


School for the 21st century.

Have you ever felt like the teacher is moving on to the next topic before youre ready? Thats because when there are 30 other students in the classroom you either follow the pace set by the teacher or get left behind. With Niteo, you set the pace.

We know that every student can do well in school. There are a million ways to teach something, so we'll find the right way that works for you. Well take the time to explain things and we won't move on until you master the concept.

Niteo isn't tutoring—you actually take courses with us. This means that you won't need to take these courses at your school. Instead, you can fill those slots in your timetable with electives that you really want to take.

From Grade 9 English to Grade 12 Calculus, Niteo can help you get your credits. Our individual and small-group lessons teach you what you need to know in a supportive, non-judgmental way.

We teach you anywhere, in your home, at the library, or online via video chat. And we work around your busy schedule.

That's what we mean by hybrid schooling: well help you find the perfect mix of public and private school and all the great things about each.
