We celebrate your child’s maths and English achievements, big and small. Tutoring at NumberWorks’nWords is based on success. Each child feels more confident about themselves as a learner when they experience success. Tutors provide positive interaction, certificates are awarded and centre-wide celebration is given when students move up a level. You may have been in the centre and heard the clapping and cheering when this happens. It’s so rewarding to see the smiles on the children’s faces and how proud they are of their achievements.

The market in area’s we serve, is currently defying the COVID-19 predictions. To plagiarize Mark Twain, “reports of the demise of the property market have been greatly exaggerated.” There is currently high demand and short supply.
As a for instance, under the One News heading “Property sales see massive drop” www.tvnz.co.nz..., however if you read down you will see a comment regarding sales numbers, “REINZ did report a “strong uplift” for the month of May” and further down the same article, “In Auckland, median house prices increased by 7.1% to $910,000, compared to the same time last year. It is the third highest price on record.”
In short, If you’re thinking of selling now is a way better moment than headlines may have led you to believe.
