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 Manager: Ally Lyons

Ally Lyons Palmerston North

Hello! I'm Ally, Manager of NumberWorks'nWords Palmerston North.

I grew up in Manawatū, and love it here. I began working at NumberWorks'nWords as an English tutor while studying Classics and English at Massey. After finishing my Graduate Diploma in secondary school teaching, I stayed on as the Manager. I love seeing the kids and the awesome strides they make in their learning and self-confidence, even after 10+ years here. It's a real privilege working with them and our fabulous staff.

My door is always open, so pop in for a chat about how we can help your child reach their potential in maths and English. I'm really looking forward to meeting you.

We sent our daughter along to improve her maths capability. What we discovered is she had the capability, but needed a different environment to feel confident in her own ability. The team at NumberWorks'nWords are great and work with you the parent, they took the information we supplied and have turned her around. She is now able to rattle off maths facts that she had learned but was afraid to share. I believe that this team will also support your child through exam pressures, and give good straightforward advice and skills that they can use to achieve maximum results for themselves in an exam situation.

It has been amazing to see our daughters progress since attending NumberWorks'nWords but more importantly, she has gained confidence in herself and a passion for learning!

Number works and their learning approach has been instrumental to the academic success of our son through his time at school.

— Jono

We love the individualised approach to our son's learning goals, whilst he is still integrated into a class-style environment. This has given him more confidence in his school classroom and the maths exercises have helped him achieve much better marks at school.
