If you're searching for a maths or English tutor in Nelson, come and check out our Richmond tuition centre. We're part of a network of tuition centres Nelson/Tasman Bay 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: Becky Mensforth

Becky Mensforth Richmond

Hi, my name is Becky and I am the Manager of Numberworks’nWords, Richmond.
I grew up in Tauranga before moving to sunny Nelson at the beginning of 2014 with my husband, Jessy.

My hobbies include music, biking, baking and reading.
Jessy and I also love to get out in our Mini and explore the local gems we have here in Nelson.

I have a Bachelor of Education in Primary Studies and have had many experiences within the educational sector. These include working as a full time teacher in a classroom, teacher aiding, nannying overseas, working with students who have special needs and private tutoring.

During my training, I was involved in the Numberworks’nWords centre in Tauranga. I worked there for five years and discovered a real passion for helping students with learning needs meet their full potential.

I believe that learning is a lifelong process and it should be an enjoyable one!
Please feel free to come in to the centre and watch as your child experiences achievement.

The team at Richmond are fantastic very enthusiastic and wonderful with my child attending! My daughter still enjoys going after 2 yrs

My 11 year old does not like maths as a subject and still doesn't but after her first term wants to go back next term - said she feels supported and listened to and is not made to feel "dumb". We have regular updates on progress and access via phone and email for regular updates. Will enrol again next term and ongoing refresher through her schooling - money very well spent.

Very welcoming staff. My daughter enjoys going to her session and as she lacks confidence and is very shy, I find this very reassuring as a parent. For the first time ever she was excited to be taking a test...and scored 92%, she and I were both thrilled. Keep up the good work!
