Our daughter's experience at NumberWorks'nWords has been nothing but positive. She's been going every week for more than four years now and she has never once complained or said that she didn't want to go. Most importantly, though, NumberWorks'nWords has made her confident about her maths abilities which has made a HUGE difference to how well she is learning, both at school and at NumberWorks'nWords. I have already recommended NumberWorks'nWords to many other parents and I will continue to do so!

To tutor or not to tutor?

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.
