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 15 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

Leanne Rhodes Robinson Tauranga

I am the owner of NumberWorks'nWords Tauranga and have been doing this now for 18 years!  Before NumberWorks'nWords I was a registered high-school teacher in Lower Hutt for 3 years, and more recently (2010-2012), taught in London, in both primary and secondary schools.  I have to say, I much prefer NumberWorks'nWords, 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 programme to each student and their needs.  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 do a bit of running for fitness.

 Kate Harland is our very qualified and experienced Assistant Manager.  She is a registered Primary teacher, and has been teaching for over 20 years in NZ and overseas.  Currently, she is the Reading Recovery teacher at a local primary school, here in Tauranga, which complements her work at NumberWorks'nWords.  She was the Lead Teacher in maths at her previous school in Taupo, and did 6 years of after-school maths tuition, before relocating to Tauranga.  She is passionate about assisting children to learn, and utilising their strengths and intelligence's to be the best that they can be.  Kate also loves being in the outdoors, be it tramping, swimming, biking or walking her dog. 

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

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

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