If you're searching for a maths or English tutor in Perth, come and check out our Subiaco tuition centre. We offer the kind of tutoring Perth parents understand and value.

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: Janice McGuire

Janice Mcguire Subiaco

Hi, I'm Janice and I'm the person you'll meet at NumberWorks'nWords Subiaco.

After more than 15 years with NumberWorks'nWords I think I am very lucky to be able to say I still LOVE my job. I get incredible satisfaction from being able to make a real difference to the learning and the lives of so many young people. And I get to have fun while I do it!

We have four children ranging in age from 24 to 16. This is the last time we were all together now that our oldest has moved overseas – the youngest would now be on the bottom of the pile!

My husband and I first started a NumberWorks'Words centre in Rotorua, NZ, in 1996. In 2005 we decided to bring NumberWorks'nWords to the West, opening in Subiaco. We also have the State franchise and look forward to opening more centres in Perth.

My son's marks have improved considerably since being tutored.

My daughter's mathematical ability has improved with NumberWorks’nWords. She has progressed from a D to a C and is now starting to get some B's in her maths tests at year 5 level. I am very happy with that.
