Meet the Owner: Fergus Cleverley

BridgetFergus Karori

Hi I'm Fergus, the owner and manager of Kilbirnie NumberWorks'nWords since 2001. After university I travelled and worked overseas for a couple of years, including teaching English in Japan and developing teaching resources for NOVA English School. I qualified as a secondary teacher in 1993 and taught maths and geography for three years before returning to Japan with my partner Bridget. This time I worked in a high school teaching English for three years. Then, after a bit more travelling, we returned to Wellington.

Bridget and I ran Kilbirnie NumberWorks'nWords together for four years, and now Bridget runs the Karori centre. We also have two beautiful daughters, Sam and Kate, who keep us very busy!

The proof of NumberWords'nWorks efficacy is in the results our son was able to achieve in NCEA which he previously wasn’t achieving with only his school’s teaching. NumberWords'nWorks has boosted our son’s confidence hugely and we are grateful to see him enjoying maths again.

The kids love it and they are engaged and feel confident. The kids see the improvement in their work and results at school.

Our daughter has really benefited from attending NumberWorks'nWords. The sessions are aligned with the curriculum and tailored to her particular needs. She is more confident and we have seen a marked improvement in her assessment results.

We needed help with Maths for our 9-year-old. Fergus and his team quickly identified the areas that required more support and provided a well-structured plan to improve her understanding, raise up her proficiency and increase her confidence in the subject. It's a great environment for young learners to get excited about Maths and to get the dedicated attention they need to reach their potential. Highly recommend!

NumberWorks'nWords has been so beneficial for my daughter. Not only has it brought her strength in her learning, but it has also given her confidence both in and out of the classroom. The power of positive learning is unmatched!

Results speak for themselves. My son always happy to attend and is very proud when he sees the results and grades at school.
