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 16 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 school-work and follows the school curriculum.

Meet the Owner: Luke Gerhard

Luke Hitchin

I am a teacher with over thirty years experience in both primary and secondary schools in the UK and abroad. The first two years of my teaching which were spent in primary education were perhaps the most invaluable as they gave me a firm grounding across the full range of subjects. In fact this was when I learnt how to teach! From there I moved into secondary education and have taught at all levels. When I was first introduced to the NumberWorks'nWords program I was hooked, and knew I had to be a part of it. NumberWorks'nWords provides the difference between doing well and wanting to do better by offering personalised learning in a fun environment.

Do drop in to the Hitchin centre to say hello. I know you will be very impressed by what you see.

My daughter started English at NumberWorks'nWords in year 8. It has boosted her confidence and surprised me at how she didn't always like English at school, but she was always eager to attend the sessions. Really supportive and positive environment and has helped my daughter make great progress.

My son Arun has been attending NumberWorks'nWords for the past 4 years. NumberWorks'nWords has helped Arun in both English and maths. I have noticed the positive impact it has had on him over the last 2 years.

NumberWorks'nWords is a very special place. The patience, encouragement, and attention that has been shown to my children have been fundamental in, not only advancing their education but also in building their overall confidence. Thank you to Luke and Jeanine for providing such a nurturing environment. Highly recommended to anyone considering.

— Hannah C

Great tuition and fantastic people. Our son has had English lessons at NumberWorks'nWords for over 5 years and is making steady progress thanks to Luke, Janine and the team. The use of computers and the format is very motivating for him. It has boosted his confidence, achievements in school and provided us with a slightly different opinion than the one expressed by his teachers.

— Gaetan V

My daughter loves going to her maths lesson each week at NumberWorks'nWords Hitchin.

— Andrew S

My daughter lacks confidence in her ability with maths. Her sessions at NumberWorks'nWords have helped her secure a greater understanding and subsequently increased her confidence significantly. She has recently been moved up a level in maths at school, which was one of her goals when starting with Luke and his team. Highly recommended.

— Suzanne H

Our daughter has excelled in school and changed her attitude towards learning. It has also boosted her confidence and understanding of the curriculum. Our daughter has never come home and got her homework out and said, "I am getting ahead!" NumberWorks'nWords, we salute you!

— John T

My son has grown so much in confidence in just a short amount of time. Within that time, he has 'met expectations' in his English progress report at school for the first time ever. We are delighted. He said himself that the extra support NumberWorks'nWords gives him has boosted his confidence in English and that, in my opinion, is all we can ask. Thanks!

— Emma B

NumberWorks'nWords Hitchin has been great for my daughter. She started just over a year ago with English lessons, and since April this year, she does both English and maths. The online lessons during lockdown and the summer really helped. Recently she was awarded the star learner award in school for helping her desk partner with column addition and subtraction! Her confidence is growing weekly, resulting from the great tutoring lessons that she attends. She always looks forward to the lessons after school! Thank you so much.
