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 Manager: Duncan Henderson

Duncan Henderson New Lynn

Kia ora, my name's Duncan and I'm the Manager of NumberWorks'nWords New Lynn. In 1995, I completed a Bachelor of Education with honours degree, and started teaching English and mathematics to Intermediate School students.

Over the past 20 years, I have gained a wealth of experience in the field of education. Having taught in NZ for most of my career, I have a comprehensive knowledge of the NZ curriculum and a clear understanding of the essential steps needed for students to achieve their learning goals. At NumberWorks'nWords, our synergy of individualised tuition within a computer based learning environment is immersive, engaging and fun. Please drop by our New Lynn centre to discuss how we can help your child achieve their full potential.

We have used this service for a term per year to ensure there are no gaps in our children’s education and give them the confidence to move into new schools. Sessions are very focused and the kids seem to enjoy these.

Duncan and the team at New Lynn are great, communication is fantastic with updates as to how both kids are going, what they are working on and what they need to work on. School teachers have noticed the improvement in both kids maths.

I've seen exponential growth in my daughter's confidence when presented with new ideas in math.

Duncan and his team are professional. They have great systems in place to get the required results and they know what they’re doing!

— A. Deuce

My daughter was struggling with maths at intermediate school and by the time she got to high school things just got worse. She has been going to NumberWorks'nWords for 3 terms and is now at the level she should be at and now enjoys maths class and even helps fellow students in class, so we will continue going. The one-on-one attention was all she needed. Thank you so much.

— K. Collins

Number works and words is a professionally run organisation where the children thrive with individually focused lessons and one on one learning support. My daughter's concentration, comprehension, and confidence in reading and writing has significantly improved and we are very grateful to Duncan and his team for their support.

— K. Wilson
