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: Ross Moultrie

Ross Moultrie
Hi, my name is Ross, and I now call Christchurch home again after 6 years in Melbourne, Australia. As the new owner of NumberWorks'nWords Burnside, I am looking forward to getting to know the parents and children who are part of the community at NumberWorks'nWords Burnside. I value the importance of learning and achievement in the modern world, and my expert tutors and I are committed to playing an important part in your child's academic development.

In my spare time I enjoy cycling, skiing and hiking, which are so accessible from this fabulous city, especially with my 6 year old son, Sam. Do not hesitate to get in touch, really looking forward to chatting soon!

Good curriculum and a good tutor to student ratio. They pay good attention to the student during the sessions and the games and rewards make it fun!

Excellent tuition provider. Kids love their tutors and mix of computer games and fun activities. I recommend the tutoring as an excellent way of extending, plugging the gaps, or just for enjoyment.

— I. Leary

It was a good experience for my daughter. Being there restored her confidence in herself to learn and understand maths. The instant feedback of answers, the interactive learning, and having a tutor right there with her to see how she worked and help her make connections turned her around.

— A. Sullivan

My son was not getting good results in English at the beginning of the year. After starting tuition at NumberWorks'nWords, he was getting Merit and Excellence.

— K. Anderson

My grandson has been attending NumberWorks'nWords for two and a half years. We have found it has improved his confidence and ability in learning mathematical concepts. The friendliness, personalised learning, and great communication are the reasons for continuing with NumberWorks'nWords.
