Meet the Manager: Rowan McCaffery

Rowan Mccaffery Johnsonville

Hi, I'm Rowan, the manager for NumberWorks'nWords in Johnsonville.

I moved to Wellington from Taranaki when I started University, and have lived here ever since. Although I do miss the mountain from time to time!

After University, I went on to do a teaching diploma at the College of Education in Karori.

I worked for a few years in an admin position at Victoria University. I also coordinated and taught their transition maths course, where many students started with no subject knowledge at all. I especially enjoyed working with the community to make what can seem like hard concepts easier to understand.

I love the great teaching and learning environment that NumberWorks'nWords provides.

It's made learning maths from scary to fun! James enjoys his lessons and always comes away feeling accomplished! It's fun and rewarding!

It is a wonderfully supportive environment, where the children get focused tutoring support customized to their needs and aligned to the NZ curriculum. The Manager and Tutors quickly got to know my daughters areas of strengths and gaps.
