English Tuition

Where does your child fit in?

The importance of literacy can be seen everywhere you look - words on signs, in books, on websites, in forms, on vehicles and hundreds of other places. The world runs on words, so reading and writing are essential life skills. For some they come easily; for others mastering the English language can be hard work.

Sam Play


Sam's parents are worried. He hasn't been doing so well in English and is embarrassed about being in the bottom group at school. Worrying doesn't fix things but targeted tuition does. For years we've been working with students who aren't meeting achievement guidelines for their age. We know how to turn things around for children like Sam, and we make sure it's fun.

Jessie Play


Jessie is a competent reader but she’s scared of getting things wrong in class. We often help students who lack confidence. Through tailored teaching, positive reinforcement and success-based learning, we are helping Jessie to become proficient and confident. Now she loves putting up her hand to answer questions.

Cody Play


Cody has been identified as having a gift in English. We think children who find reading and writing easy deserve as much attention as students who are struggling. If test results and school reports show that your child has a talent for words, we can create a plan that accelerates and broadens English learning. Watch Cody's Story

The staff at NumberWorks'nWords have always been very friendly, professional and helpful. They engage well with my children, who appear to be making good progress with English, which they were struggling with before coming to the centre. The activities appear to be interesting and my kids love going each week. I would recommend NumberWorks'nWords to any parent whose child is struggling with English.
