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 Owners: Jackie & Andrew Pound

AndrewJackie Pound Takapuna

Hi! We are Jackie and Andrew, and we own the Takapuna NumberWorks'nWords centre. Our two daughters have also been involved in the business, both as tutors and part-time office workers (Jessie was a student for a number of years).

We both came from teaching backgrounds. The thing that keeps us so motivated is working with children and helping them to be the best they can be. This means success in maths and English, and just as importantly, it means watching them grow in confidence and self-belief. We believe in creating a vibrant, happy, and safe environment that students of all ages look forward to being a part of. We welcome you to visit us in the Takapuna centre!

NumberWorks’nWords Takapuna has helped my daughter go from below national standard at primary school through to merit standard at secondary school. The difference it has made not only in her ability to understand maths, but in her confidence has been amazing. She has gone from hating maths to actually enjoying it!
