If you're searching for a maths or English tutor in the Gold Coast, come and check out our Chevron Island tuition centre. We're a long-established tuition centre Gold Coast parents review highly.

Individual tuition programs

Our curriculum-linked programs 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 program 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 schoolwork and follows the Australian curriculum.

Meet the Owner: Michelle Wickens

Michelle Wickens Chevron Island v2

Hi, my name is Michelle, I am a qualified primary school teacher, a wife and a mother of 3 teenagers all attending high school.

I have been working in the education industry for over 20 years in various capacities as a primary teacher, early childhood teacher, director of child care centres, and manager of a Literacy Centre.

My family moved to the beautiful Gold Coast 5 years ago to provide greater opportunities for our children. I took this opportunity to re-asses the direction my life should take.  I decided to strike a balance and work part time as a teacher’s aide and to study part time.  On completing my Graduate Certificate in Information Studies I knew it was time to get back to what I excel in, teaching children. As the new owner manager of NumberWorks’nWords Chevron Island I will be passionate in supporting every child to reach their full potential.

Outside of NumberWorks'nWords, I enjoy swimming, bike riding, Pilates, meditation, theatre and am an avid reader. I have volunteered in many areas including Volunteer Coastal Patrol, P&C, School Councils and Schoolies supervision in 2015.

We have been very impressed with the NumberWorks program to date. It's very targeted to our children’s' needs, they are in communication with our school and best of all our children absolutely love going.

Michelle and her team provide an exemplary service. The energy at the centre really is positive and motivating. My daughter has been attending for 3 terms. Her grades are up, she enjoys going and her overall attitude to her school work has improved immensely. We can’t be happier.
