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: Wendy Dumée

Kia ora, I’m Wendy Dumée, the owner and manager of NumberWorks’nWords Papamoa. I was the teaching team leader for the Gifted and Talented students in Totara House at Tauranga Intermediate for many years. Now, it is great to be able to encourage and support students in my local community with their learning. In my experience, the NumberWorks’nWords programme works because it is fun and it matches the NZ school curriculum. My stepdaughter loved her years learning at NumberWorks’nWords and she felt comfortable working alongside the young tutors. Her confidence blossomed and so did her results! 

I love walking my dog Rosie, in the Wairakei Reserve and the view of the beautiful Papamoa Hills. Learning to speak languages, such as Mandarin, French, and te reo Maori, is one of my favourite pastimes. 

Me and my team of kind, encouraging trained tutors will be able to fill learning gaps and give your child that boost in Maths and/or English which can make all the difference!
