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: Natalie Smith

Natalie New Plymouth

Hi! I’m Natalie, owner of NumberWorks’nWords New Plymouth.

I have been with NumberWorks for 8 years now, starting as an English tutor in the Palmerston North centre. After completing my Bachelor of Education, followed by a small stint at a primary school, I decided that I enjoyed the individualised support we can give students at NumberWorks’nWords too much to leave. I love when students have a ‘lightbulb’ moment when a concept clicks, and celebrating successes (no matter how small). My aim is to increase learning confidence, while letting kids see that learning maths and English can be fun!

I’m always keen for a chat, so feel free to pop in or give me a call!
