If you're searching for maths or English tutoring in the Hutt Valley, come and check out our Lower Hutt tuition centre. We're part of a network of tutoring centres Hutt Valley parents review highly.

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 schoolwork and follows the New Zealand curriculum.

Meet the Manager: Charlotte Tait

Charlotte Tait Lower Hutt

Hi, my name is Charlotte Tait. I'm originally from the U.S.A. but have lived in New Zealand for almost 13 years. My family and I love it here and have made Wellington our home.

I have worked in education for 25 years, both in the States and in New Zealand. After finishing my graduate degree I worked as a School Counsellor in a number of schools with children from Year 0 to University.

In 1996 my husband, Paul, and I packed up our 4-year-old daughter and moved across the world to New Zealand. I started work at Muritai School the next year and then moved to Chilton St. James School where I stayed for the next 10 years.

I came to NumberWorks'nWords in Term 2 2008 as manager of the Hutt Valley Centre. It has been a wonderful year getting to know so many new people and working from another perspective in education. I feel very fortunate to have found such a good mix of administration, teaching and sheer fun!

Great place, Charlotte is really friendly and organised. The establishment seems to be well run and has really shown amazing results in my son's school results plus his new enjoyment of math. He, not me, wants to continue with NumberWorks so I'll continue to keep him there.

Doesn't just like his lessons, he loves them and its giving him more confidence when learning classroom maths concepts. The homework sheets are perfect too.

Our daughter loves going to NumberWorks and she has become so much more confident with Math as a result. Thank you!
