  • Do math tutors really help?

    Maths tutoring helps students build confidence in maths, and improves their understanding of important mathematical concepts. Our individualised maths tutoring is based on each pupil’s current ability and what their learning goals are. Tutors are subject experts who undergo extensive training in the use of our specialist software and tuition model. We choose to use high performing students because they are very competent in the subject matter, having recently done it themselves, and the children look up to them as role models. Complementary with the school curriculum, you can be assured that everything learned will be relevant and useful to your child. At NumberWorks'nWords we develop a tailored learning program for each student, and support them in unlocking their full potential. We regularly report back to parents so you know how your child is progressing, and can support their learning at home.

Throughout the term, previous study areas are re-tested and revised to ensure learning has been retained, and children are on-track with their learning.

If a child chooses to stay with us, their learning program is reassessed to ensure they remain on track with their learning goals.

  • What age should you get a tutor?

    Tutoring programs provide help for children who need extra assistance with their learning, and challenges students who require extension to progress at an accelerated rate. There is no one prescribed age to start tutoring for your child. The age a child starts tutoring will depend on their learning needs and progression through their schooling. Some children need extra support early on in their education, while others experience difficulties later in their schooling. On the other side, some students may need extension as soon as they start school, or this may come later, when they develop heightened learning agility and out-pace their peers. When to start tutoring for your child is a family choice, but NumberWorks’nWords can help with this process, through our academic assessment. You can bring your child into a NumberWorks’nWords centre for a comprehensive free assessment that identifies strengths, weaknesses and gaps, that tutoring can help with. There are many reasons why you should consider tutoring for your child, these may include:

    • Your child is falling behind with their school work
    • Your child needs extra support and time with the teacher at school  
    • Your child has a keen interest in a subject area that they want to learn more about 
    • Your child shows indications of needing accelerated learning 
    • Your child is approaching an important test or exam that they need support with 
    • Your child is nervous about school and has low confidence
