If you're searching for a maths or English tutor in Sydney, come and check out the new Putney tuition centre.

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: Lisa Rowntree

Lisa Rowntree Putney

Hello! My name is Lisa Rowntree. I am the owner and manager of NumberWorks’nWords Putney. I have two daughters, Fiona and Elizabeth, and I enjoy spending time with them doing exciting activities such as Tenpin Bowling, hiking and watching movies. Best of all, we enjoy doing Yoga together.

 I have a Bachelor degree in Early Childhood Education.  I have been teaching in public schools as a casual teacher which has given me valuable experiences teaching a diverse range of children.

 When teaching, I believe it is essential to build meaningful relationships with students and have the determination to go the extra mile to help them succeed.

 At NumberWorks’nWords, students will be working in a safe, enjoyable and supportive environment, so that they will have the opportunity to reach their full potential and enjoy coming to the tuition centre. My favourite quality of NumberWorks’nWords is that students will be working on individualised programs that are tailor-made to meet their needs.

 I look forward to meeting you at NumberWorks’nWords Putney to discuss how we can assist your child in achieving confidence, and developing their skills in Mathematics and English.

My daughter is loving it doesn’t feel like tutoring , and I’m happy she is enjoying it and is motivated!!!
