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 16 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 Manager: Aly Barrass


Hello, I am Aly. My role as Manager at Ashgrove enables me to combine my long love of education and teaching, while working alongside students and helping them to meet their goals in their learning journey. 

I come originally from Sydney and have since moved to several states of Australia, working in a large variety of educational settings with a wide age range of students. During this time, I have continued my own educational journey, gaining Bachelor and Master’s degrees in Early Childhood, Primary and Special Education, as well as personal study in Visual Arts.

With a strong skilled team of tutors, we are here to assist your child to maximise their potential

It’s such a great atmosphere for learning. Tutors are motivating and attentive. I am kept in the loop with my child’s progress, achievements, and working areas. Whether you need your child to catch up on English or maths or simply get ahead and keep their confidence up, I highly recommend NumberWorks’nWords. You walk in and you feel the positive environment. It’s a safe space for children to learn and be the best they can be, with rewards to motivate them to keep going. Thank you so much for such a great opportunity for our children.

I was really happy with NumberWorks'nWords and the staff are great. My daughter was comfortable attending and will continue to attend lessons in the future. Thank you.

— B Jarna

My daughter (dyslexia & inattentive ADHD) has been attending English sessions at NumberWorks’nWords in Ashgrove for over a year and loves it. Her reading has improved, but more importantly, her mindset is no longer disengaged and reluctant. Sarah and her team have oodles of patience and commitment to the kids and love to recognize and celebrate each milestone.

— T. Sales

Our daughter has thrived here and the best results for us is that she loves learning again! Grades are up too which is a bonus. No more fights about homework, as now she just jumps in and gets it done.

— R. Donaghy

Both my daughters have been attending NumberWorks'nWords for a few years now. The biggest difference I have seen is how confident they have both become in maths with results to match. Both say this is their favourite subject now. The tutors are young & relatable to the kids which helps them to stay motivated and focused. Flexibility has also never been an issue when life gets in the way at times.

— B. Koscharsky

My child always has a blast at NumberWorks'nWords. The staff are warm and knowledgeable, and take a real interest in my child's learning and development.

— K. Ash

NumberWorks'nWords provides a friendly, welcoming, and encouraging environment in which my daughter can usefully increase her confidence to take into her classroom daily.

— N. Chambers

NumberWorks’nWords is professional, well organised, and has made a world of difference in building my daughter's knowledge and confidence at school. It has made her believe that she can learn and start working by herself. Best of all, she LOVES attending!

— C. Brumby

Both of my children have attended NumberWorks'nWords. It has made an enormous contribution to their self-confidence and overall achievement in Maths. Both started out struggling and below where they should be to being in the top-level maths group for NCEA.

— R. Muspratt

We have seen an improvement in our daughter's grades but more importantly in her confidence as a result of her time at NumberWorks'nWords. She has asked to continue tutoring in Year 10. This is the best investment in her education we have ever made!
