If you're searching for a maths or English tutor in Melbourne, come and check out our Brighton tuition centre. We offer the kind of tutoring Melbourne parents understand and value.

Individual tuition programs

Our curriculum-linked programs are designed by experts to deliver the results your child needs (catch-up, extension or exam prep), while also building confidence and increasing love of learning. We teach children aged 5 to 15 and regular reports show how your child is improving. Every student has an individualised program and works towards agreed personal goals. Results are celebrated.

Maths tutoring

Effective and engaging maths tuition will ensure your child has the numeracy knowledge and thinking skills required for improved maths performance. We help children who struggle with maths, as well as those who are gifted.

English tutoring

Whether your child is a reluctant reader and writer or an aspiring novelist, we can prescribe a needs-based English tuition programme. Our tutoring complements schoolwork and follows the Australian curriculum.

Meet the Owner: Anne Sierakowski

Anne Sierakowski Brighton

Hi I'm Anne Sierakowski. I have been the owner and manager of NumberWorks'nWords South Yarra since its beginnings in 2000 and opened the Brighton centre in 2006. I have a Trained Primary Teachers Certificate, a Diploma of Teaching and a Bachelor of Education.

Amazingly, I have been in the teaching profession for over 30 years and still find it very rewarding. I get a lot of satisfaction in seeing the children at NumberWorks'nWords having fun and learning at the same time. To me, it is what education is all about. One of the most amazing things about NumberWorks'nWords is that children want to be here.

Outside of NumberWorks'nWords I enjoy an active life with tennis, cycling, walking, travelling, having fun with family and friends, learning french and occasionally find some time for skiing when there is snow!

The change in my daughter's attitude to doing maths has been incredible. No longer do we hear her saying 'I'm terrible at maths'. Instead she is embracing her homework and enjoying the challenges.

NumberWorks'nWords make learning fun. They keep my son engaged and keen to succeed. The staff are very positive and have built Sam's confidence.
