If you're searching for a maths or English tutor in Wollongong, come and check out our Victoria Street tuition centre. We offer the kind of tutoring Wollongong 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.

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: Sally Warren

Sally Warren Wollongong

Hi, I'm Sally. I am the owner and manager of NumberWorks'nWords Wollongong.

I am a qualified primary school teacher and taught maths in Canberra high schools for several years before travelling the world. In 1991 I joined NumberWorks'nWords as manager of the Chatswood centre. I became the first Australian franchisee in 1995 in Bondi Junction. In 2005 my family made a sea change to the Illawarra, opening the Wollongong centre. We love living near the sea in Thirroul!

I also love my job. The NumberWorks'nWords program has enabled me to help thousands of students achieve goals and learning outcomes that they never believed possible. It's all done with the right combination of serious teaching, confidence building and FUN.

I am a Learning Links teacher and a member of the Australian Tutoring Association. I sometimes teach in local schools which keeps me in touch with the public school community.

The Wollongong centre is always filled with love, laughter and learning. This positive atmosphere enables students to achieve their goals without stress.

I have 3 children, in primary, high school and university. When not working I enjoy cooking, bushwalking, running, gardening and travelling.

NumberWorks'nWords has helped my daughter stop struggling in school with Maths, she went from being a 'basic' maths student to at the higher end of her class! They taught her the foundations she needed to excel in a subject she previously struggled in. She loves going to her tutoring sessions and loves that it has given her the confidence boost she really needed to succeed in school! We are very happy and highly recommend them to everyone!
