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: Myra Reitsma


Hello! I'm Myra, the Manager of NumberWorks'nWords here in Palmerston North.

I grew up here in the Manawatū and love it – mostly for all the places I can walk my dogs! I started out at NumberWorks'nWords as a maths tutor in 2015 and have made my way through the ranks to become the manager in 2022. The best part of my job is seeing the students grow in their self-confidence and reach their goals – nothing beats witnessing that “Aha!” moment when a child clicks with a skill!

I’m always keen to have a chat about students and make a plan about how we can help them reach their potential. Give me a call or pop into our centre – I can't wait to meet you!

It has been amazing to see our daughter progress since attending NumberWorks'nWords but more importantly, she has gained confidence in herself and a passion for learning!

— J. Freeman

Before NumberWorks'nWords, my daughter struggled to understand the concepts of basic maths and couldn't do basic facts. With the help of NumberWorks'nWords, she is now near the top of the class and finally enjoying maths!

— L. Assa

Ally, Myra, and the team at Palmerston NumberWorks'nWords have been so engaged with our son’s progress. We are so pleased our son has been enrolled with them. We have no hesitation in recommending the team.

— J. Mikkelsen

Great tutors. They provide the children with a programme that caters to their specific needs.

— H. Giles

We love the individualised approach to our son's learning goals, whilst he is still integrated into a class-style environment. This has given him more confidence in his school classroom and the maths exercises have helped him achieve better results at school.

— S. Murphy

I would highly recommend NumberWorks'nWords to anybody. The way they care you your child and their progress is second to none. You will see your child's confidence and passion for learning blossom before your eyes.

— E. Kissock

NumberWorks'nWords and their learning approach has been instrumental to the academic success of our son during his time at school.

— J. Miller

It has been great for my daughter. She has gained so much confidence, as she was falling behind and getting upset at not understanding her maths at school. The teachers their are such nice people and they provide an amazing environment for the kids. My daughter absolutely loves attending and I can’t say enough about how impressed I am with it.

— M. Anne

My son has been attending NumberWorks'nWords for the past 4 years, he was behind by a lot when we chose tutoring and now he is where he needs to be. We carry on with tutoring not because he needs it but because he loves it.

— W. Ferrancullo

If you're wanting to watch your child's confidence, understanding, and enjoyment in maths grow [and yes I'm serious] and of course, see their marks improve, then Ali and her team at NumberWorks'nWords can help get them there. They provide a stress-free nurturing environment for children to learn and grow.
