If you're searching for maths or English tutoring in Hawke's Bay, come and check out our Napier tuition centre. We're part of a network of tutoring centres Hawke's Bay 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.

Meet the Owner: Andrew Crawford

Andrew Crawford Hawkes Bay

Welcome to NumberWorks'nWords Hawke's Bay. My name is Andrew Crawford, owner and manager of this thriving centre in Napier. I am excited about working with you and your child to maximize their learning potential and achieving their educational goals.

I have over 30 years' experience as a school teacher, principal and associate principal, with a passion for Maths and Literacy, which I bring to this learning environment.

My wife, June, is also a primary teacher. Family is very important to us. We have three sons who are all now in their twenties and living away from home.

Outside of NumberWorks'nWords we enjoy gardening, walking, running and cycling and, of course, catching up with family and friends.

I look forward to meeting you at the free evaluation lesson.

NumberWorks has been great for our son. His ability, attitude and confidence towards maths has changed considerably over the year due to attending NumberWorks. Thanks to the staff for working alongside him to reach his goals and making him feel comfortable with Maths.
