If you're searching for a maths or English tutor in Sydney, come and check out our St Ives tuition centre. We're part of a network of tutoring centres Sydney parents review highly.

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 Managers: Ollie & Monique

Ollie and Monique St Ives

We are really looking forward to meeting you at our St Ives centre!

As qualified teachers, Ollie who has a Bachelor of Education from the University of Notre Dame and Monique, a Bachelor of Education from the University of Technology Sydney, our overarching goal is to ensure your child is excited and enthusiastic about learning. We want to help your child achieve confidence and success with their maths and English both at school and in life. Tutoring is exceptionally beneficial in gaining additional attention, revision and extension in maths and English and as such can have a significant impact on school results. NumberWorks’nWords is able to teach specific skills through programs, tailored to your child’s needs to reach their relevant maths and English goals in a fun and engaging way.

We both grew up on Sydney’s Northern Beaches and have experience teaching here in Australia and London, England, specialising in intervention teaching and behaviour for learning.  Having taught in two highly regarded education systems, we understand the important role that tuition plays in a child’s education. Tuition allows a consolidation and extension of learning that can be hard to achieve in a regular classroom setting. We are passionate about equal education for all students and have a deep-rooted understanding in the individual needs of all children. There is no ‘one size fits all’ model for teaching children and our passion for tuition reflects this.

Just like your children, we are on a learning journey as well, excited to learn more every day. When we are not working with children, we like travelling to new and exciting places in the world, reading, going to the gym, surfing, rugby, dancing and swimming at the beach.

I absolutely recommend NumberWorks’nWords at St Ives. It is the right teaching method for my 11 year old son. Their approach is professional, positive and happy. His teacher is highly impressed with his writing. His work was used as an example for the whole English class. Also he was asked to design a garden plan using quadrants etc. It is now on display in the Maths classroom. Thank you for providing confidence and enjoyment for my son.
