Having tutored and managed a centre, it seemed like a logical progression for Liz to own her own centre. “I love it, I couldn’t think of doing anything else. Everyone gets individual support and individual help. We have amazing software to help children improve. Without a doubt, I would 100% recommend NumberWorks’nWords to anyone interested in owning a tutoring franchise”

Rochelle Sippy Downs, Sunshine Coast

Rochelle has been in education for 20 years and was finding it hard to make a difference. Through a chance conversation, she learnt about NumberWorks’nWords and after doing her due diligence decided it was right for her. “It’s been very busy, exciting, at times overwhelming but I’ve had great support.” She now has better work life balance, is making a difference to children and it has brought back her passion which she is really excited about.
