If you're searching for a maths or English tutor in East Auckland, come and check out our Howick/Pakuranga tuition centre. We offer the quality tutoring East Auckland parents understand and value.

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.

Ron and Cathy Scott Howick

We are proud to be the owners of NumberWorks'nWords Howick and look forward to working with you and your children. We chose this opportunity because the resources and programs used are so effective and exciting for students. Our aim is to help your child achieve the highest level of success possible. We look forward to seeing you at the free evaluation lesson.

I have had over 20 years experience as a primary and secondary teacher in Mathematics and Science. Mentoring beginning teachers has been a highlight and prior to returning to NZ in 2013 I was a Maths advisor in the Middle East and Kazakhstan.

I will manage Maths tutoring and day to day operations.

Cathy has worked for over 20 years in primary schools with a focus on literacy. She has a passion for working with students to develop reading and writing skills.

Cathy will manage the English tutoring.

Outside of NumberWorks'nWords we love to catch up with our 3 boys (all in their 20s). Family is important to us and we love to go walking, biking and exploring as many parts of NZ as possible.

An excellent investment to my child's future. Without the ongoing support, help and guidance of Ron and his staff, my daughter would not be at the level she's at. I totally recommend NumberWorks’nWords.

NumberWorks is proving to be fantastic for my son who has always hated maths but now enjoys attending NumberWorks to learn and develop a better understanding.
