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.

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.

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.

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.

My grandson has been attending Number Works for 2 and 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
