Individual tuition programmes

Our curriculum-linked programmes 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 programme 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 New Zealand curriculum.

Meet the Owner: Bridget Brownlee

NumberWorksnWords Karori

Hi, I'm Bridget, the owner of NumberWorks'nWords Karori. I was a secondary school teacher prior to owning a NumberWorks’nWords centre. I have been running a centre now for about 20 years.

I love working with our students, and their different needs and personalities. I love how NumberWorks’nWords, with our amazing young tutors and our computer based learning environment, caters for each child’s individual needs - whether it’s for confidence, remedial or extension support. We strive to foster an ongoing positive attitude towards learning in an enjoyable, welcoming environment.

I am really proud to be a part of NumberWorks’nWords and I encourage you to come and see what we do.

The children are enjoying maths in the fun environment you provide for them and are not afraid to ask questions. It gives them more confidence and have said it helps heaps! Everyone is friendly and all the kids learn at their own pace. Feedback is very helpful with finding out where they are at.

— C. Collins

I would highly recommend NumberWorks'nWords. The staff are very professional, friendly, and patient with the children. The lessons are fun and follow the school curriculum. Every lesson is tailored to each child and we get regular feedback on progress. NumberWorks'nWords has been amazing for my children.

— C. Coffey

NumberWorks'nWords have provided great teaching and a boost in confidence for my daughter and her maths. Their communication is also excellent, keeping you updated with how things are going. They make learning fun.

— J. Miller

Number’nWords have given extreme confidence in maths to my son who was struggling greatly. I have finally been put to ease that he will cope with his transition into year 7 maths. Thank you for all the attention to detail.

— N. Woodhall

Our daughter enjoys attending and it is never a problem to change tuition days if needed. Our daughter got top for her year at school in maths, even though it’s never been her strong subject!

— K. Redgrave

Bridget has been extremely accommodating, always one step ahead in knowing when assessments and exams are and what prep is needed to be done, and willing to work around you. Gives regular updates on my child’s progress also. Also just a lovely teacher.

— N. Patel

NumberWorks'nWords fills in the gaps that school does not. It has given my son confidence in his maths ability and the progress he has made is incredible.

— K. Palmer

Our child has clearly benefited from his time at NumberWorks'nWords. It provides academic support that we as parents are not equipped to provide, in respect of the maths curriculum. It’s also extremely handy to us location-wise.

— B. Nick

Our son has been attending NumberWorks'nWords for the past four years. Our lives are bus and we wanted our son’s educational experience with maths and English to be enjoyable and positive from the start. We visited the NumberWorks'nWords Karori and were impressed by their professionalism, communication, flexible lesson times, and fit with the school curriculum. By attending NumberWorks'nWords from an early age, his confidence and approach to all subjects and activities are positive. Most importantly, he loves it! Great value for money. Thanks Bridget, you and your team rock!
