If you're searching for a maths or English tutor in Wellington, come and check out our Kilbirnie tuition centre. We offer the quality tutoring Wellington parents understand and value.
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.
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.
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.
A NumberWorks’nWords assessment for English and/or Maths will provide you with valuable insight into how your child is progressing.
Hi I'm Fergus, the owner and manager of Kilbirnie NumberWorks'nWords since 2001.
After university I travelled and worked overseas for a couple of years, including teaching English in Japan and developing teaching resources for NOVA English School.
I qualified as a secondary teacher in 1993 and taught maths and geography for three years before returning to Japan with my partner Bridget. This time I worked in a high school teaching English for three years. Then, after a bit more travelling, we returned to Wellington.
Bridget and I ran Kilbirnie NumberWorks'nWords together for four years and now Bridget runs the Karori centre.
We also have two beautiful daughters, Sam and Kate, who keep us very busy!
Our daughter has really benefited from attending NumberWorks. The sessions have been aligned with the curriculum and tailored to her particular needs. She is more confident and we have seen a marked improvement in her assessment results.— Panny L
Has been great for Jack's knowledge and confidence in Maths, Thanks!— Marlow C
