Meet the Owner: Nicola Russell
Kia Ora, I'm Nicola, the owner of NumberWorks'nWords in Rolleston, Canterbury. My goal is to ensure that children feel confident in their abilities and enjoy learning. Originally from the UK I visited New Zealand twelve years ago and never left. Devoting my time to working with children led me to complete both my undergraduate in Psychology and Education along with a Master of Primary Teaching up in Auckland. For the past three years I have been fortunate enough to call Canterbury home. Over the years I have worked both in classrooms and with children on a one on one basis in private settings. I have seen the progress children can make with their learning when they are encouraged and have their skills nurtured through individualised programmes. I endeavour to help learners take pride in their work and believe in themselves, setting them up for success.
