Watch your child blossom with this innovative tutoring program

Is your child struggling to keep up with the pace of their class? Or perhaps they’re a bright spark, eager to push boundaries and deepen their understanding? Whatever their learning needs, a maths tutor or English tutor can be a valuable tool to ignite their journey towards academic success. However, with a plethora of options available, choosing the right program can feel overwhelming, and not every tutor is created equal.

From the outset, tutoring isn’t simply about additional practice problems.

“Tutoring shouldn’t just be a recap of what students are learning in the classroom, especially if they’re already falling behind,” says Rochelle Callard from NumberWorks’nWords Tutoring Queensland.

“A good tutoring program should be aligned with the National Curriculum, so it complements what the student is doing and builds on their existing knowledge. Breaking down complex concepts into manageable steps and ensuring mastery at each level is crucial for building confidence and fostering a love for learning.”


Key things to consider when searching for a tutor:

  • Experienced and qualified tutors: Look for individuals who understand your child’s age group and learning style. Their credentials and experience working with students similar to your child’s needs (catch-up, extension, exam preparation) are essential.
  • Tailored programs: A one-size-fits-all approach rarely works in education. Personalised learning plans that address your child’s strengths and weaknesses are crucial for maximising their potential.
  • Effective learning methods: Consider your child’s learning style. Does the program incorporate strategies that cater to visual, auditory, or kinesthetic learners?
  • Clear communication: Regular progress reports and updates on your child’s journey are essential for maintaining a collaborative approach between you, the tutor, and your child.
  • Proven track record: Look for programs with a history of success in helping children achieve their academic goals.

“Our personalised approach at NumberWorks’nWords can make a huge difference in a child’s progress,” says Rochelle. “The program is designed to be engaging and structured, so students make far more progress than with many other methods.”

  • Building confidence: They break down complex concepts into manageable steps, ensuring each child experiences success and starts enjoying learning again. This mastery approach fosters a growth mindset, encouraging them to embrace challenges and persevere through difficulties.

Is an English and maths tutor worth the investment?

Investing in the right tutoring program can be a game-changer for your child’s academic journey. By considering their unique needs and learning styles, you can empower them to reach their full potential.

“It’s always worth picking up the phone to find out if your child may benefit from extra support,” concludes Rochelle. “Taking the time to explore tutoring options can be a rewarding investment in your child’s future.”

Beyond the academic benefits, tutoring can also offer valuable social and emotional benefits. A positive and supportive environment can help children build self-confidence, develop strong study habits, and foster a love for learning that extends beyond the classroom.

Remember, every child learns differently. Finding a tutor that aligns with your child’s learning style and needs is critical to maximising their success. With the proper support, your child can unlock their potential and thrive in their academic journey.


Your child may benefit from a tutor if they:

  • Need to develop skills
  • Struggle with completing their homework and need help
  • Say they are OK, but your instincts are telling you something’s not quite right
  • Want to get into or stay in the top group at school
  • Need a confidence boost before moving to a new school or sitting exams
  • Love learning and just can’t get enough
  • Can be disruptive during lessons or plays the class clown to cover up non-achievement
  • Has clear strengths but wants to work on their weaknesses
  • Need support to find their love for learning
