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: Leanne Rhodes-Robinson

LeaneeRhodesRobinson Tauranga

I am the owner of NumberWorks'nWords Tauranga, and have been doing this now for 20 years! Before NumberWorks'nWords I was a registered high-school teacher in Lower Hutt for 3 years, and taught in London, in both primary and secondary schools for 2 years. 

I have to say, I much prefer NumberWorks'nWords to school teaching, where the students are enthusiastic walking through the door, and you as the teacher have the resources and time that you don't have in a school, to individualise a program to each student and their needs. Consequently, you see incredible progress, and that makes students and parents, and me, happy!  

Outside of NumberWorks'nWords, I love mountain-biking and snow-boarding, and run for fitness.

Termly feedback on our daughter's progress was thorough and I felt they had a good understanding of her abilities. Easy to change dates and times for sessions if there was an unexpected clash.

— L. Warburton

The tutoring programme is tailored to the child. The tutors are really passionate about what they teach and make the child feel welcome. Even if a child is struggling, NumberWorks'nWords responds to that need and celebrates the child's achievements, rather than focusing on their failures.

— M. Thomas

My daughters love NumberWorks'nWords. The mixture of math games and one-on-one teaching is great. Having tutors nearer to their age group also helps. A positive environment to learn and become confident in Maths.

— D. Hemsley

A great environment for learning and it is tailored to each child's needs. NumberWorks’nWords has assisted in lifting a below standard student to an above standard student.

— B. Larson

A great place for filling in any learning gaps, and ensuring topics are well understood, great tutors who connect well with students, excellent communication, and feedback on my child’s learning, where they are at, and their next steps. A great place for my child to learn, and grow in confidence.

— S. Picard

Great place, with great teachers, my son enjoys learning in the centre. Since attending his lessons he has improved his school work immensely and become more confident tackling school work.

— N. Nitesh

Our son has improved in maths and enjoys it for the first time in many years! I would hope that my friends' children could have the same experience.

— T. Turner

Both my children have attended lessons at NumberWorks'nWords Tauranga over the years. I find Leanne and her team fantastic and nothing is ever too much trouble. I feel like they really care and take an interest in each student and go out of their way to ensure each child is given all the help and support they require to assist with their learning and development.

— P. Gundry

My two kids really enjoyed their time at NumberWorks'nWords. Leanne and her team accurately assessed where they were at, and what programme of work they needed to help meet their needs. Both my children increased in confidence and skill. I highly recommend NumberWorks'nWords to everyone!

— A. Read

NumberWorks’nWords has been amazing for my daughter's confidence and attitude towards maths since starting. Many concepts that she had previously found difficult to comprehend, has now become clear. I will highly recommend it to all my friends!
