Amy has been such a gem to deal with! Very professional and friendly service. NumberWorks’nWords has given my daughter so much confidence, and she has even inspired me with her new found love for maths. Awesome work NumberWorks'nWords!

My daughter has grown confidence in herself and her school work and she only started half way through term 3. I can see that she learns a lot in the time she is there!

— Mona

NumberWorks'nWords methodology provides children with a fun and engaging way to learn. Our son even thinks learning maths is now fun & it's never an issue to get him to attend. It's awesome!
