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: Raewyn Hansen

Raewyn Hansen Invercargill

I’m Raewyn, manager/owner of the Invercargill branch of NumberWorks’nWords. Invercargill takes pride in being the most southern centre of all the NumberWorks’nWords centres worldwide.

Prior to establishing the centre in 2007, I had been a teacher in both primary and secondary schools for over 30 years. The decision to move out of the classroom to establish a centre in Invercargill was big, but one that I have thoroughly enjoyed.

Getting to the nitty gritty of how children learn has always been my passion. Every day, I’m lucky enough to witness confidence soar, skills develop and progress escalate as students work with their tutors. It is the great teams of tutors that continue to make the centre a vibrant place of learning where relationships between tutors and students are pivotal in providing a platform for success.

We are proud that NumberWorks’nWords Invercargill is a supportive, safe place where “it’s so much fun, it doesn’t feel like learning”.

My son learned a lot since he started at number works, doing English and mathematics hes really enjoying it. Keep up the awesome job you all doing

My son was lacking confidence in his maths ability but after attending NumberWorks'nWords even after the first week, he has gained confidence in his maths ability and loves attending the class each week.
