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 school-work and follows the school curriculum.

Meet the Owner: Luke Gerhard

Luke Hitchin

I am a teacher with over thirty years experience in both primary and secondary schools in the UK and abroad. The first two years of my teaching which were spent in primary education were perhaps the most invaluable as they gave me a firm grounding across the full range of subjects. In fact this was when I learnt how to teach! From there I moved into secondary education and have taught at all levels. When I was first introduced to the NumberWorks'nWords program I was hooked, and knew I had to be a part of it. NumberWorks'nWords provides the difference between doing well and wanting to do better by offering personalised learning in a fun environment.

Do drop in to the Hitchin centre to say hello. I know you will be very impressed by what you see.

NumberWorks'nWords is a very special place. The patience, encouragement, and attention that has been shown to my children have been fundamental in, not only advancing their education but also in building their overall confidence. Thank you to Luke and Jeanine for providing such a nurturing environment. Highly recommended to anyone considering.
