With a NumberWorks’nWords tutoring centre, you can satisfy your entrepreneurial spirit, discover a more flexible lifestyle and be in charge of your own destiny, while enjoying the emotional rewards of helping children reach their potential.
It’s our policy to offer new franchisees a territory that can demographically support a full-time NumberWorks’nWords tutoring centre. Depending on availability and your preference, we can offer the territory that’s closest to where you live or the territory that has the most potential for success. With 35 years of experience and relevant demographic data, we’re in a good position to provide advice that will help you to choose a successful location. Once agreed, your territory is exclusive and protected for the life of the franchise agreement.
Individually owned centres deliver tutoring programmes to students in their defined territory. They also organise local marketing, with guidance from headquarters. As part of the set-up process we help you to find a building that’s suitable as a NumberWorks’nWords centre – around 100 sq metres is needed. We will prepare a layout plan, provide specifications for the décor (interior and exterior) and furniture, and design the signage.
Our world-acclaimed, curriculum-linked tutoring software allows you to deliver an effective, individualised tutoring programme to every student who enrols at your centre.
We have our own product development and IT teams. They are continuously updating existing software, developing new curriculum-linked learning programmes and maintaining support systems. Their expertise ensures NumberWorks’nWords tutoring centres are always working with world-class, market-leading educational tools that complement national curricula for students aged 5 to 16 years.
Our initial training programme covers all aspects of the NumberWorks’nWords business. By the time the training programme is completed, you will be fully equipped to successfully manage your business.
We can provide you with income projections for your first year, plus a revenue calculator to help with future planning.
The initial fee is $30,000 for a new centre and $10,000 if you buy an existing centre. There are also training, start-up and on-going costs that are explained in full in our detailed information brochure.
You don’t need to be a teacher but you need to be passionate about education and enjoy working with children. Communication skills are vital as there is a lot of talking with parents, tutors and students. Business skills are an advantage especially in the sales and marketing area. However, our comprehensive training and ongoing support will ensure you are well equipped to run a successful centre
We liked how NumberWorks’nWords had large territories, were selective where they allowed franchisees to open a centre (only where they thought could support it) and were very protective of their existing franchisees’ territories to newcomers who were choosing certain areas.— Centre Owner, Australia
It’s a totally different work-life balance. Much improved now, even though I work just as many hours as in my previous career. I love the autonomy – the master-of-my-own destiny thing. And I love working with children and making a difference in their lives.— Centre owner, Australia
Whilst living in Auckland, I had both my daughters enrolled into a centre. I was impressed by the product and also by their positive response to the program. I could see that Adelaide did not offer a variety of tutoring options and with my desire to start a new business, I saw this as an ideal opportunity. I felt confident that with my previous experience working in other tutoring businesses, I could make this work.— Centre owner, Australia
I see success and happy students! And I have freedom to do life choices during the day, such as catching up with friends.— Centre Owner, New Zealand
