If you're searching for maths or English tutoring in Christchurch, come and check out our Cashmere tuition centre. We're part of a network of tutoring centres Christchurch parents review highly.

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 15 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.

"Hi, I'm pleased to introduce myself & my family to you all. I have been involved with NumberWorks'nWords since 1992, where I started as a tutor! Since 1999 I have run the Cashmere branch in south Christchurch. I am supported by my wife, who also works in education."

Our children have been attending NumberWorks for a while now and love it. The teachers are approachable and the teaching is fantastic. Highly recommended for both kids who need to catch up and those that need extending.

We have had such a positive experience with Number works. Our kids love it and their confidence in maths has increased significantly. Ivan is incredible. He has such a wonderful rapport with the kids and his high energy personality is encouraging.
