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.

Building confidence and making it 'click'. That's what it is all about, and why I have been tutoring for over 20 years. 

Kia ora, I'm Mike. I still love seeing 'the penny drop' for students when they grasp a new concept and achieve their goals. I love the enthusiasm and positive attitude for learning that NumberWorks'nWords offers and the fun atmosphere that makes this a special place for the students.

We welcome you to visit us in centre, and see for yourself.
