Meet the Owner: Celia Osbourne

Celia Osborne Surbiton

I'm Celia, the manager of the Surbiton NumberWorks'nWords. I've been involved with NumberWorks'nWords since 2005 when I first began bringing my older child for tutoring. She enjoyed it so much and learnt so much that I sent my younger child too. It was so good I bought the centre!

After 23 years as a Primary school teacher it is refreshing to be able to give children the individual attention and focus the learning to what they need in a fun environment. Whether 5 or 16 the same basic theory applies to learning. Make it as much fun as possible and young people want learn even more. I am a local person who knows the needs of the children and the schools in this area.

Celia and the team at NumberWorks'nWords have been nothing but amazing! My daughter, My daughter Gracie was a bit behind in her schoolwork before the lockdown in March, and desperate for her not to fall even further behind, we reached out to Celia. Seeing the improvements week after week makes it all worth it and Gracie really enjoys the lessons as well! The easiest 5 stars I've ever given and would easily recommend to anyone looking for a tutor.

Celia and her team at NumberWorks'nWords Surbiton make learning fun in a warm and welcoming environment.

— R. Adams

My daughter loves her weekly maths session with Celia and it is great to see how much her confidence in maths has grown in a short period of time. I never thought that doing extra maths each week would become one of her favourite activities, but it has! Thanks to Celia and the team for making it such a fun and rewarding experience for her.

— N. Crome

The atmosphere is phenomenal and the tutors are really kind, caring, fun, and interactive with each child. They encourage them in their own unique ways to help reach their full potential.

I have sent both my kids here from around year 1 to year 6 to give their English a boost. Celia has been a font of knowledge about senior schools and a source of great advice about where would suit them. She has worked tirelessly with both of them to improve their creative writing and it made a big difference. Both kids really enjoyed it and didn’t see it as tutoring or extra school work - at one point my daughter said it was her favourite activity of the week. Highly recommend to increase your child’s confidence and give them some personalised help to supplement school work.

— J. Buckle

I would highly recommend NumberWorks’nWords to anyone who wants to support their child with maths and English. My children have all benefitted from getting a new perspective on some of the challenging topics. It is fun and has a youthful environment with a cheerful atmosphere.

— J. Gray

From the first session with Celia, my son enjoyed his time at NumberWorks'nWords and always looked forward to going. Initially, we enrolled for both maths and English to help him gain confidence with his learning whilst continuing to challenge him. After a few months, he felt more confident in himself and wanted to sit the 11+ exams. Celia and her team make learning fun in a relaxed environment. We loved seeing and hearing about his progress regularly.

— D. Elliot

My son has shown a noticeable improvement in his English creative writing and comprehension after just one term with Celia and her team. He enjoys his weekly visits every Saturday. The atmosphere is always so positive and welcoming, and the exercises are varied and fun. We are so glad to have found NumberWorks'nWords.

— G. Smith

My daughters all thoroughly enjoyed getting the 1-1 help with the tutors, and it really helped boost their confidence. My eldest daughter did very well in her KS2 SATS with the help of targeted tuition and it has given her a confident start to secondary school.

— D. Pee

I can't recommend NumberWorks'nWords enough. Upbeat, fun, and super engaging. Celia makes learning fun and has really helped my daughter feel at ease and catch up. She is the fairy godmother of tutoring!

— L. Walker

Celia at NumberWorks'nWords Surbiton makes every lesson individualised by focusing on the students' needs, and she is also very good at explaining things slowly until you understand. With Celia's help, I have increased my confidence, and I'm now motivated to do well! She really cares about her students and also the parents! I love going to NumberWorks'nWords. Well done Celia!

— C. Avison

My son attended NumberWorks'nWords for a term as he needed some maths tuition. He enjoyed the sessions, which is important and liked that the work was done on computers. He also said that the tutors were very nice. The tuition he received here may well have played a part in helping him achieve his aim of getting into a grammar school.

— S. Bush

My children have benefited enormously after attending NumberWorks'nWords Surbiton. They have made huge improvements in English and maths, not just in terms of their accuracy but also their enthusiasm and confidence in both subjects. The extra attention that they receive during the tutoring has helped them significantly improve their marks at school. The learning environment is fun, with a combination of individual working, tutors, games, creative competitions, and snacks! My children and I highly recommend this place.

— G. Clark

We have used NumberWork'nWords Surbiton for 2 years now and are very happy with the results that are being achieved for our son. The environment, low tutor to student ratio, the materials, mixed-mode style of teaching, and flexibility have all made a really big difference. Celia is amazing. Thank you!

— M. Wiltshire

Thank you to Celia and her team for making learning fun! My daughter was initially resistant at the idea of getting extra lessons in English, but actually really enjoys them! I have also noticed a great improvement in her ability and confidence to tackle comprehension questions.

— N. Larson

Amazing service from Celia. My son needed help with his maths, and the service she provided was very professional and relaxed. He really enjoyed it. Thank you!

— G. Barnes

Celia and her team at NumberWorks'nWords Surbiton are fantastic because they make learning fun and engaging. My son loves going to his weekly one-to-one sessions, which he has benefited greatly from it. As a parent, I was worried he would fall behind, especially when I noticed that he wasn't fully engaged with in class. He would evade the challenging tasks and would be reluctant to start reading or writing. Thanks to the sessions at NumberWorks'nWords, he has increased confidence, now enjoys reading, writing, and is happy to engage with the lessons taught at school. He comes home eager to tell me what he has learnt or what he has written. Thank you Celia and your wonderful team!

— C. Martin-Arora

My children have made significant improvements in their understanding of math and English after attending NumberWorks'nWords.
