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 schoolwork and follows the New Zealand curriculum.

Meet the Owner: Ellen MacDonald


Hi there! My name is Ellen MacDonald and I’m the owner of NumberWorks’nWords Kilbirnie. My journey with NumberWorks’nWords started in 2010 when I was an English tutor in Rotorua during my senior high school years. It continued through my university years in Wellington where I managed the Lower Hutt centre for several years before becoming an owner here in Kilbirnie! I’m trained as a Primary school teacher and have a  passion for creating “lightbulb moments” for students where something that was previously difficult or out of reach becomes clear.

One of my goals is to foster a love of learning for my students so that they can be lifelong learners. When I’m not in the centre I’m usually curled up with a book, at the gym lifting weights or with my husband visiting our family up and down the motu. I’m always keen to talk about how I can help your child reach their full potential so please reach out!
