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: Katherine Nash

Katherine Nash Howick

Hello, my name is Katherine Nash and I am the owner of NumberWorks'nWords Howick. 

I have been working as a teacher in South Auckland for the last 12 years, and have worked with students from year 1 to year 8. My teaching experiences have made me very aware of the challenges in education and the effects that these have on students. I have a special interest in digital education and the ways that it can be used to improve outcomes for students with learning challenges. I also have experience in adult education and account management. I am a mum to 3 amazing children and enjoy painting, snowboarding, and gardening in my spare time.

All the staff at NumberWorks'nWords are amazing, friendly, and extremely accommodating. My daughter loves maths now and her confidence has grown so much, due to the great work and effort that the tutors put in to their lessons.

— C. Fox

We enrolled our daugher at NumberWorks'nWords because she failed her maths practice exams a few years ago. In her final exam that year, she passed with Merit! We are now enrolling our youngest child who also struggles with her maths and the improvement is just amazing. We want to thank Ron and Katherine for helping make maths seem a bit easier!

— R. Oliver

My daughter flourished with the extra support received from NumberWorks'nWords. She grew in confidence and made great progress with her literacy skills. The tutors were friendly, knowledgeable, and incredibly supportive.

— J. Vivash

I have been really happy with my daughter's progress in just a few short weeks at NumberWorks'nWords. She has progressed from being unsure and lacking the confidence to try even simple maths tasks to openly seeking out opportunities to use her newfound skills, and also talk us through the strategies she used to get there. Thank you! Would highly recommend it.

— I. Ganguly

The team at NumberWorks'nWords are very kind and caring. They understand the children's needs and goals on an individual basis. They are just fabulous and my daughter loves going.

— A. Cara

An excellent investment in 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 now. I highly recommend NumberWorks’nWords.

— P. Elizabeth

NumberWorks'nWords has provided one on one instructional teaching. The program has aligned with the New Zealand maths curriculum and therefore has strengthened what has been taught at school. NumberWorks'nWords has not only lifted our daughter's maths achievement but the belief in herself that she is indeed a mathematician!

— J. Baleicakau

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

— B. Erina

My children have benefited so much from everything they have learnt from the tutors. They have maintained high grades.

— A. Jan

Brilliant way to give your child confidence & self worth both in & out of school. Great staff & very easy timetable system to book & change dates.

— M. Appleton
