NumberWorks’nWords English and maths tuition supports students ages 5 - 16 with their education, by personalising learning programmes specifically catering to the individual needs of each student. We offer free English and maths assessments which identify gaps and weaknesses. With this information, in conjunction with the parents and child, our team will develop a personalised learning programme to meet your child’s learning needs.

Our in-centre English tuition and maths tuition is customised to each child, so whether they are learning to read and write, learning basic numeracy, preparing for English and maths exams, or looking for extension work that challenges them, tutoring at NumberWorks’nWords can help.

Get Started with NumberWorks'nWords

At the first sign of schoolwork struggles, it’s essential to get ahead of the problem before it’s too late. When school work becomes more complex, time spent self-studying may not be the answer your child needs. At NumberWorks’nWords, we offer expert maths and English tutoring to help your child understand their syllabus and boost their confidence at school.

Don’t wait until exams to get your child the support they need — the longer you delay your child a tutor, the more coursework there is to catch up on. Children don’t avoid schoolwork for fun; they often avoid it because they find it too challenging. Led by trained English and math tutors across New Zealand, we can give your child the support and confidence they need to excel.

  • How does tutoring with NumberWorks’nWords help?

    Tutoring with NumberWorks’nWords helps boost confidence and improve school results, thanks to our proven in-centre tuition model that is tailored to each student. Our personalised approach to tuition, which caters to students of all abilities and complements the work that students do at school, is curriculum-based and designed to meet the individual needs of each student. Our English and maths tutors are specially trained and are experts in their subject. NumberWorks’nWords tutors are high school or university students who have recently completed their schooling. They have an easy rapport with our students as they are close in age, and act as role models for our pupils. Students also receive mentorship from their tutors and build confidence through learning in a supportive environment that fosters growth and achievement. We can provide English and maths tutoring to help your child achieve a specific goal, prepare them for exams, level up their school grades, or extend their learning beyond the school syllabus.

    Personalised tuition programmes are prepared following our comprehensive English and maths assessments, which help us to determine where each student is at with their learning, and what their learning goals are. With this information, and in conjunction with the parent and child, we prepare a learning programme to help meet the student’s needs and advance their learning. Our learning systems have been carefully developed to produce results - both in skill and confidence levels. You’ll receive regular progress reports and your child will earn certificates as he/she progresses through the levels. You’ll also know it’s working when your child’s regular teacher notices a difference and their enthusiasm for learning grows.
