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 Owners: Jackie & Andrew Pound

AndrewJackie Pound Takapuna

Hi! We are Jackie and Andrew, and we own the Takapuna NumberWorks'nWords centre. Our two daughters have also been involved in the business, both as tutors and part-time office workers (Jessie was a student for a number of years).

We both came from teaching backgrounds. The thing that keeps us so motivated is working with children and helping them to be the best they can be. This means success in maths and English, and just as importantly, it means watching them grow in confidence and self-belief. We believe in creating a vibrant, happy, and safe environment that students of all ages look forward to being a part of. We welcome you to visit us in the Takapuna centre!

All of our children love going to number works. When they realise it’s number works day they literally get excited! They enjoy the work, their tutors and the jelly beans! Their skill level has improved and they have a genuine love for Maths. As a parent I have confidence that they are learning what they need to for their curriculum level and higher and this is reflected in the great results they are achieving at school.

NumberWorks'nWords has given my kids back their confidence in maths and english. We were hesitant at first given the cost, but its definitely worth the money. Best of all, they both really enjoy it and really like their tutors.

I have been so impressed with the results my daughter has achieved following her tutoring at NumberWorks’nWords. She has gained self confidence in her own abilities.

NumberWorks’nWords Takapuna has helped my daughter go from below national standard at primary school through to merit standard at secondary school. The difference it has made not only in her ability to understand maths, but in her confidence has been amazing. She has gone from hating maths to actually enjoying it!

The team are excellent at addressing learning gaps and setting the course for them to follow for remediation. The tutors are knowledgeable and they make it fun to learn.

My son has shown real improvement in English and maths in a short space of time, but best of all, he loves attending NumberWorks’nWords.

— R. Allen

Jackie and Andrew have both been very helpful with my both daughters' tutoring and genuinely understand their needs. They always follow up to make sure the service and tutors are helpful.

My daughter has gained a great deal of confidence from attending number works. She now believes in her own abilities in maths and she no longer dreads maths tests at a school. On her recent school maths test she achieved 93%! My daughter enjoys going to number works, the tutors are fun, positive, encouraging, young, and nice - ok the jelly beans help too! If you have been thinking about tutoring for your child I would highly recommend number works n words - the results have been great!
