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 Managers: Shanti & Fraser

Fraser and Shanti

Hi, my name is Shanti; I joined NumberWorks'nWords as a mathematics tutor in 2014. It was here that I discovered my passion for education. I thoroughly enjoy working in an environment that encourages children to build their confidence and help achieve their goals. Every child is unique, and I take pride in ensuring that we create a program that is tailored to each student and their specific learning goals in both maths and English. I love spending my free time travelling and exploring new places and cuisines, and spending time with my family and friends. We welcome you to visit us in-centre today.

Hi, I'm Fraser. I joined St Ives NumberWorks'nWords as a maths tutor in 2019 where I witnessed first-hand how a student can gain self-belief and success thanks to positive experiences in their education. My goal as a manager is to create a supportive environment for your child to develop their maths and English skills, as well as ensuring they feel confident. I love seeing our students achieve their goals and I believe that celebrating success helps to foster a love of learning. Our team of friendly tutors are experts in maths and English and are here to help your child thrive in and out of school. When I'm not working at NumberWorks'nWords, I'm walking my dog Tilly, playing football and watching movies. Looking forward to meeting you in the centre!

My daughter feels comfortable asking for concepts to be broken down if she can't grasp them, which is something she feels she cannot do at school. We have seen a marked increase in her confidence and ability in one term. Well worth it!

— S. Powell

Thank you Ollie, Monique and the team at NumberWorks'nWords St Ives. You have inspired and ignited my daughter's passion for both maths and English. It hasn't been easy, but I can honestly say, she has grown and expanded her abilities in both areas.

— D. Brown

I absolutely recommend NumberWorks’nWords 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 and his work was used as an example for the whole English class. He was also 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.

— T. Judy

I would highly recommend NumberWorks'nWords for children that are looking to push themselves further, wanting to improve overall, to gain confidence and to reboost the love of learning. The system is fun, interactive, flexible and adaptable to a childs needs. We have been attending the centre for 3 years now and my daughter is keen to continue into high school. We were struggling to find the motivation to learn maths and to practice. NumberWorks'nWords with their highly engaged and passionate staff have done that - my child loves maths and the classes and looks forward to each session. And it takes some of the pressure of parents too! A great place to learn!

— L. Ainscough

Made learning fun and instilled confidence in our children and their abilities.

— P. Kim

Great team on all levels and we always feel welcomed. The kids love attending and although it doesn’t feel like work to them, they still learn a lot. They have a really good attitude towards school work and a positive environment. Management of logistics and parent relationships are also excellent. I love that the children always come first and are listened to.

— C. Minois

NumberWorks'nWords greatly helped my daughter with her confidence in maths. She looked forward to going to her sessions after school and the team always made her feel welcome. We’ll be back!

— Susie Wintzer

I felt my daughter was in good hands with Ollie and Monique! I saw her confidence grow with each session.

— C. Anglim

Love the targeted tuition offered to cater to each child’s individual needs. They make each kid feel special and they celebrate achievements, milestones, and birthdays. Fabulous communication and they touch base with parents regularly to discuss needs and progress. My kids love going and it has been a massive boost in confidence. Highly recommended.
