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 16 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.

Lain Wollongong Centre

Hi, my name is Lain and I am the proud owner/operator of NumberWorks’nWords Wollongong. I am an independent mother of three awesome children who have all enjoyed being tutored, so when the opportunity arose to join NumberWorks’nWords, it was a natural fit. 
When you come into our centre you will always feel welcome and comfortable to discuss what we can offer your child in both maths and English. You will notice the buzz and excitement of the children working eagerly on their own individual programs which have been tailored to support each child’s learning needs. Get in touch or visit the centre to learn more about tutoring at NumberWorks’nWords.

NumberWorks'nWords has helped my daughter stop struggling in school with maths. She went from being a 'basic' maths student to being at the higher end of her class! They taught her the foundations she needed to excel in a subject she previously struggled in. She loves going to her tutoring sessions and loves that it has given her the confidence boost she really needed to succeed in school! We are very happy and highly recommend to everyone!

I have seen a big improvement in my son with his confidence and participation in his school work. Before going to tutoring, he would not raise his hand in class. Now he is engaged in his learning and willing to speak out in class.

Lain at NumberWorks'nWords Wollongong is very involved and aware of my child's learning needs. We are seeing amazing improvements and our daughter now loves maths!

— A. Jan

Lain and the team do an amazing job. They ensure that not only my child's math is improving, but they are also invested in her wellbeing and checking in to see how she is going with school and with her tutoring sessions. They consciously work to provide the right environment that suits my daughter's learning style, which allows her to feel engaged and eager to learn. I am extremely pleased that I made the decision for my daughter to attend.

— K. Myler

Very impressed with the quality of teaching and support offered by NumberWorks'nWords Wollongong. My child has seen a great improvement in her mathematics results at school, which is a direct result of the tutoring received at NumberWorks'nWords. This has also created an overall boost in confidence for my child at school and in all learning areas. Highly recommended.
