TESTIMONIALS

"We liked how NumberWorks’nWords had large territories, were selective where they allowed franchisees to open a centre (only where they thought could support it) and were very protective of their existing franchisees’ territories to newcomers who were choosing certain areas." 
Centre owner, Australia

"I see success and happy students! And I have freedom to do life choices during the day, such as catching up with friends."
Centre owner, New Zealand

"Two weeks in! I'm not missing the long meetings at school or the constant directives to change my teaching practice. I have enjoyed dealing with the builders/suppliers and having the freedom to go and buy a flat white. I am enjoying the time I have at home in the mornings to organise my household and not having to rush out at 7.30am. It's great to learn new things and make new friends."
New Centre Owner

"I wanted to work in an environment that offered flexibility with my time. At the same time I could continue my love of teaching students and knowing that I play a part in their success adds to a rewarding experience."
Centre owner

How do students learn at NumberWorks’nWords?

Our tutoring programmes combine imaginative and easy-to-use software with sound teaching practices. We cover the full mathematics and literacy curricula, and every student works at a level that is correct for him or her. Central to the success of our tutoring programmes is VIT – very intensive teaching. The teacher: student ratio in a centre is usually one to three.

Is demand growing for after-school tutoring?

Yes. Parents are becoming more aware of numeracy and literacy standards, as well as the consequences of poor achievement at school. Those with high-achieving students are keen to see that potential is fully developed.

How many staff does a centre need?

One full-time teacher can run a NumberWorks’nWords centre. The balance of staff are university students or similar, working on a casual basis one or two nights a week. The number of tutors required is determined by the roll.

We prefer to use university students as tutors because the children enjoy working with them and often aspire to be like them.

What do schools think of NumberWorks’nWords?

We aim to establish good relationships with local schools. Our tutoring service is complementary to the teaching provided during school hours. Teachers can become strong advocates for NumberWorks’nWords. We are happy to support fundraising initiatives at school through advertising and vouchers for tuition.

About how many NumberWorks’nWords centres are there in the world?

Since we started in 1984, we have expanded from New Zealand to Australia, England and Singapore. There are now 70 NumberWorks’nWords centres in the world.

Can I visit a centre to see what it’s like?

Of course! We welcome observers during our after-school sessions. Spending time in a centre is the best way to find out if you want to own a centre.

What sort of return can I expect from a NumberWorks’nWords centre?

We can provide cash flow projections for the first three years of operation. Costs are fixed, so profitability grows as your roll grows.

What size are the territories?

Territories vary depending on the population density of the location, i.e. provincial territories may be larger than urban territories. Territories are always designed to be big enough to support a profitable centre.

What sort of hours will I be working?

Teaching time is all after school. Sessions start between 3.30 and 4.00 pm and continue for three hours or more each evening. As you know, good teaching requires preparation time and running your own business requires time for administration. Running a

NumberWorks’nWords centre is a full time job, however you have flexibility with your hours.

How will I get students?

Our marketing programme focuses on the local community around your centre. Advertising campaigns have proven effective both in the early days and ongoing life of the centre.
