'Building confidence' and making it "click." That's what it is all about and why I have been tutoring for over 20 years. 

Kia ora, I'm Mike. I still love seeing 'the penny drop' for students when they grasp a new concept and achieve their goals. I love the enthusiasm and positive attitude for learning that NumberWorks'nWords offers and the fun atmosphere that makes this a special place for the students. Come and see for yourself.


Very friendly and helpful service with great knowledge and skills provided.
